Former Forum for Democratic Change security secretary, Salim Angoliga, works as an informer for police chief, Kale Kayihura, and government spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo.
Top party members told Insider this afternoon that Angoliga has been using his party position to get groceries from Kayihura and Ofwono Opondo.
“Ofwono recently told someone that another FDC man who has been working closely with them is defecting,” an executive party official told us.
“Angoliga has nothing else to cling on in the FDC, he was beaten in the Primaries so he has nothing left for him now he can go to his bosses that he has been feeding information.”
The party through their official Twitter handle @FDCOfficial1 said: “It is within his right to support a candidate of his choice and that is the freedom in FDC.”
This was minutes after Angoliga denounced the party presidential flag bearer, Kizza Besigye, before press in Kampala.
Party officials tell us Angoliga failed to pay a Shs 5 million loan and asked Besigye for help.
He had acquired the loan from a moneylender in Kampala giving Besigye his Toyota Harrier as security.
Angoliga claims the car was stolen from a petrol station in Nsambya but FDC sources say he has recovered it “although he doesn’t even have the fuel to drive it”.
Desperate, he approached Uganda Media Centre boss, Ofwono Opondo, who introduced him to the deputy NRM secretary General, Richard Todwong.
The NRM cadres are allegedly behind Angoliga’s bold move to denounce Dr Besigye in a press conference “thinking it would weaken the Besigye camp”.
In 2010, Angoliga allegedly sold minutes of FDC meetings to Police officers.
He further presented to them falsified documents and fake evidence showing how the party was planning to attack electoral commission with guns.
This led to heavy deployment of counter terrorism police CTP at EC headquarters.
Although Kayihura’s intelligence had rejected Angoliga’s claim, he kept the spy close as an informer until 2012 when he was completely discarded.
Angoliga who has worked for Besigye for at least 8 years, ferrying him to hospitals, has been known by the party as a double-dealer.
After the 2011 general elections, Angoliga continued working with police.
He was Kayihura’s informer during Besigye’s April 2011 walk-to-work riots.
He used to meet Kayihura at a pub in Muyenga near the police chief’s home.
Towards the end of walk-to-work protests, Kayihura and police intelligence began to discard Angoliga’s reports as lacking.
Police realised he was nolonger of value yet Angoliga hoped to use the avenue to get to the president.
When Kayihura discarded him, Angoliga then linked up with Opondo and Todwong to allegedly sell FDC secrets to the ruling party.
The same spy was feeding Gen David Sejusa information when he was still the coordinator of intelligence services in the UPDF.
