Forum for Democratic Change deputy secretary general Harold Kaija says the quarrel between Aruu county MP and party president over shadow cabinet will not tear them apart.
Odonga Otto took to social media last week where he demeaned Mugisha Muntu accusing him of betraying Kizza Besigye and revenging on officials loyal to him while appointing the new shadow cabinet.
Kawempe North MP Mubarak Munyagwa who also reportedly accused Muntu and his “cohorts” of backstabbing Besigye, reinforced this.
Addressing press at the party head offices on Monday, Kaija said they are still united as a party and will address grievances raised by discontented officials.
The deputy SG said the party will soon resume Tuesday weekly prayers calling for the release of Besigye from Luzira prisons where he is held on treason charges.
He called on civil society and religious leaders to join them in the endeavour.
However, weekly prayers were banned by Constitutional Court as a security measure and the case is still ongoing.
Kaija said this time round, even Muslims will be welcome to evoke Allah’s mercy on suffering Ugandans.
Uganda should quit EAC
In another bold move, FDC is rallying Ugandans to pull-out of the East African Community [EAC] and East African Legislative Assembly [EALA].
They accuse NRM members serving in the regional parliament of allegedly conspiring to amend the rules of procedure to extend the term limits.
Kaija said NRM members were used to disrespecting the constitution and would commence with illegal political gymnastics.
He said in any case, Ugandans haven’t benefited much from the East African Community bloc.
