Reports of internal strife within the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) have emerged, with claims that Kira Municipality MP Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda and his allies are strategizing to bring back Dr. Kizza Besigye to active politics. The source alleges that this faction seeks financial support and aims to reinvigorate Besigye’s political career.

The tensions have been brewing for a while, with leaders like Ssemujju openly opposing the current party leadership. A recent consultative meeting discussed reorienting the FDC’s mission and addressing party structure elections. The divide within the party appears rooted in power struggles and financial issues, leading to calls for Besigye’s return to leadership.

Amid these developments, Ssemujju Nganda denies the allegations, expressing his commitment to the party’s principles. He threatens to expose secret dealings involving FDC President Amuriat, Secretary General Mafabi, and President Museveni if provoked. Besigye, who had previously withdrawn from active politics, is rumored to be considering a return, as recent actions suggest a shift in focus towards his political career.

The conflict has exposed divisions between party leaders and raised concerns over potential party splits. The situation remains volatile, with those voicing concerns about alleged misconduct facing challenges in the party. The debate surrounding the party’s leadership and internal elections continues to intensify.
