Busoga FDC Members Rally Behind Besigye’s Call for a New Political Movement

Members of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in Busoga region aligned with the party’s Katonga faction, have unanimously thrown their support behind Kizza Besigye’s idea of establishing a new political party, distinct from the existing Najjanankumbi-based party.

Across all 12 districts in the Busoga region, including Jinja city, voices echoed in favor of breaking away from the current party, citing a perceived departure from its founding principles.

The pivotal decision was made during a consultative gathering held at Mpumudde Estate Primary School in Jinja City, attended by influential figures including the party’s founding president, Dr. Kizza Besigye, members of the FDC National Executive Council (NEC), and Members of Parliament.

During the session, district representatives stood firm on their resolutions. Asuman Mutaasa, chairperson of Kamuli district FDC, emphasized their district’s resolve to rebrand and forge ahead under the leadership of Dr. Kizza Besigye.

Likewise, Hassan Muyinda, chairperson of Iganga district FDC, highlighted unanimous agreement among their members to embrace a fresh start rather than engage in reconciliation efforts.

With a unified voice, leaders from various districts stressed the imperative of a new movement grounded in activism, dedicated to advancing political liberties.

Proscovia Salaamu Musumba, former FDC vice-chairperson for eastern Uganda, outlined the options presented to delegates, including internal strife, legal recourse, reconciliation talks, affiliating with other parties, or founding a new entity. The consensus from Busoga resolutely opposed reconciliation with the Najjanankumbi faction.

Dr. Besigye, in his address, urged members to remain steadfast in their struggle against what he termed the tyranny of the minority over the majority. He pledged unwavering commitment to the cause.

Jinja’s Members of Parliament, Timothy Batuwa, David Aga Isabirye, and Francis Mwijukye, rallied their colleagues to stay focused on the collective objective.
