The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) is embroiled in a wrangle over the election of its candidate to the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA), due tomorrow.
The development follows the show of interest by Florence Ibi Ekwau and the FDC’s Secretary for Mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe Kamateneti, the former who has been preferred by the party. However, Turinawe, despite conceding defeat to Ms Ekwau, has vowed to continue with her quest for the EALA job.
According to Turinawe, they both belong to FDC and ‘no new guidelines have been issued’ that can stop her candidature.
However, last week FDC president Major General Mugisha Muntu wrote to the Clerk to Parliament Jane Kibirige, withdrawing Turinawe’s name, in the process throwing a spanner in the wheels.
Meanwhile, some unknown people have thrown a head of a pig near the entrance to the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi.
