FDC activists protest LOP, demand PM office

Opposition activists have stormed the offices of Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] protesting the expected naming of the new Leader of Opposition in Parliament [LOP].

The incident happened Tuesday evening while FDC party National Executive Committee [NEC] was meeting to approve a new leader of opposition in parliament.

Names in the race for LOP include; Kasese Woman MP Winnie Kiiza, party spokesperson Ssemujju Nganda and Dokolo Woman MP Cecilia Ogwal.

Earlier, Nganda had said the party’s top organ would sit today and pick one member to lead in them in parliament but would not call that person a LOP since they won 2016 elections.

While the meeting was underway at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi, a group of dissatisfied activists stormed the venue with serious demands.

At the gate, they were met by FDC secretary for mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe and Secretary General, Nandala Mafabi.

The group which could not be stopped by mere words, demanded that the party should not appoint a LOP.

They also demanded that instead of a LOP, the party should be aiming for the position of Prime Minister since they are no longer “opposition”.

The messages were written on the placards they carried and kept brandishing in the face of party officials.

It took a long time of persuasion by Mafabi and Ingrid before the activists could back down.

Police was later called in; it arrested the ring leaders and drove them away.
