Forum For Democratic Change president Gen. Mugisha Muntu held a closed door meeting with the local government leadership on issues of the role of accountability and a meeting with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni that the FDC local government leadership snubbed.
Muntu said the meetings are part of the fast and loose games played by the regime in effort to destabilise FDC.
“I am thankful to the leadership of Kampala; LCs and Mayors for giving the people of Kampala, this victory which is very important.”
He said any invitation for meetings with FDC must be official.
“We do not run FDC as a market, and if the regime wants to run itself and the country as a market, it can go ahead and do just that. However, we will not participate in that method, we will not participate in that style, and we will keep resisting it until we take power and change the political culture in this country.”
The party has since prohibited it’s councillors from going to Museveni’s meetings.
“If Museveni wants to meet with the councillors, he should go through party leadership,” the party insisted.
On Sunday, Museveni met KCCA Councilor-elects at State House Entebbe over their grievances following a constitutional court petition seeking to eliminate councillors, divisional mayor-elects and members of par elect from the Capital City.
The 275 KCCA councillors were from the five divisions of Kampala namely Central, Nakawa, Makindye, Rubaga and Kawempe.
Museveni told the councilor-elects not to be misled by wrong elements and not to listen to the members of the opposition groups who move around inciting the public to participate in strikes that are not genuine to cause confusion.
He advised them to instead respect the court process and await its outcome.
