It was the Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] that organised all the crowds that attended Amama Mbabazi rallies in eastern Uganda, according to Hon Nandala Mafabi.
Mafabi, the Secretary General FDC, was appearing on NBS TV on Tuesday morning to responding to Amama’s new deal with Democratic Party’s Norbert Mao.
Mao has been in the news singing praise after praise for Amama who he thinks can cause the change Uganda needs.
Mafabi said FDC too has no problem with Mbabazi but wants him to fulfil the requirements they agreed on.
“We want Amama Mbabazi to fulfil article 10 of the The Democratic Alliance protocol, by showing his party structures and his popularity,” Mafabi said.
TDA rejected Mbabazi for not being corrupt free and lacking proper structures.
Conservative Party president, Ken Lukyamuzi, said Amama’s Go Forward Pro Change group was “amorphous” with no defined members or agenda.
Mafabi seems to suggest that the popularity Amama has garnered so far is curtsey of FDC.
“All those crowds in eastern Uganda were organized by FDC.”
Amama pulled a mammoth crowd in Mbale on his first day of consultations, worrying the regime that unleashed police to curtail him.
He pulled an equally impressive crowd in Jinja town forcing police to teargas them and arrest his chief bodyguard.
Mafabi says all those crowds were the handwork of the opposition FDC party.
He added: “We have seen people move into the opposition and then abandon it in the case of Lt Gen. Henry Tumukunde,” Mafabi noted questioning Mbabazi’s commitment to the opposition.
He said it was not true Besigye left the TDA and that the money Besigye received was because Ugandans are supporting a cause.
After the failure of FDC, Besigye and Mbabazi opted to stand independently against Museveni in 2016 general elections.
