Members of FDC Katonga faction mourn late Adam Mulwana’s passing


The Katonga-based faction of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) gathered today to pay tribute to its former member, Adam Mulwana, who passed away on Tuesday morning after a prolonged illness.

Mulwana gained fame through his political campaign hit song ‘Toka kwa bara bara,’ which became a hallmark for the Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and its then-presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye, during the 2016 General Elections.

One after another, FDC officials took the microphone at Katonga, where Mulwana’s body lay for final respects from colleagues, praising the late musician for leveraging his talent to contribute to what they termed as a struggle to oust tyranny.

Former FDC Party President, Dr. Kiiza Besigye, stated that Mulwana etched his name among the nation’s liberation heroes when he chose to dedicate his life to the cause rather than pursuing elective positions, unlike many opposition aspirants. Besigye mentioned that despite Mulwana’s lack of formal education due to financial constraints in his family, he managed to survive and lend his voice to their enduring struggle.

Besigye lamented the lack of support from the state for artists to earn from their talents, remarking that Mulwana’s talent could have sustained him if given the opportunity.

Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago urged everyone to follow Mulwana’s example by prioritizing the nation’s fight over allegiance to individual election candidates, emphasizing that striving for a better country is a collective responsibility.

Lukwago cautioned politicians against exploiting the vulnerability of ailing colleagues to make controversial statements that undermine their longstanding struggle, referencing the viral video of the late Dokolo District Woman MP, Cecilia Ogwal, thanking Speaker of Parliament Anita Among and Health Minister Ruth Aceng.

Kira Municipality MP, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, applauded Mulwana for choosing to utilize his musical talent in the fight against the Museveni government rather than producing love songs.

Following the prayers, Mulwana’s body was taken to his ancestral grounds in Luweero District for burial.
