Over 60 district leaders of FDC at various leadership positions in Ankole sub region have resigned and joined the New Formation.
In a strong-worded statement read by Nuwagira Daniel Kafureka the General Secretary FDC Mbarara district, the leaders said that the inability to reconcile differing strategies made it very difficult for them to be accommodated within the party so as to find a common path towards their main purpose and objectives.
The leaders who were addressing a press conference at Freedom gardens in Mbarara, further noted that the party strategy of defiance championed by current FDC president Patrick Oboi Amuriat is short-sighted and totally different from the core objectives they based on to join the party.
They said their participation in FDC would help to transform the nation in building an attractive political culture that would last for many years.
The members said that the current political trends in the country need a rebranded political organization whose fortunes are not tied to individual but built values of civility, equity, justice and tolerance which they believe to be critical steps in the struggle for change in the country.
George Karamira the FDC district chairman Ntungamo says, differing strategies stagnated performance of the party in the district adding that he would not manage to participate in the official party defiance strategy a reason that forced him to quit the party he has served for 13 years
The same views were echoed by Rubirizi and Kiruhura district FDC chairpersons Muzoora Moses Salongo and Mweteise Bintabara
Mary Francis Kabateirene Semambo one of the FDC founder Member and former chairperson Mbarara said that she feels much disappointed because the original party ideas of providing alternative policies were stunted by some of party leaders who could not allow people to speak out and even have their minds shared and termed this character assassination.
She called on Ugandans to join the New Formation which she said will be a pro-people party that will bring ideas and values that will make the country grow to the next level.
