KAMPALA:  The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party Spokesperson, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, has said that his dismissal as FDC whip in parliament was a matter of time, but no one has the right to dismiss him.

Nganda, who was dismissed and replaced by Hon. Yusuf Nsibambi Monday morning, revealed that the party president, Patrick Amuriat Oboi, has for several times told members of Parliament how he has become a problem by commenting on every issue he comes across.

“This was just a matter of time because in our earlier party meeting, Amuriat told MPs that I was talking too much and was causing other members of parliament a problem,” said Ssemujju.

Nganda added that Amuriat’s conduct is a clear manifestation of strong orders from Museveni, whom he accuses of being uncomfortable, especially after exposing their evil plans to hand over the party to the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).

Earlier today, the FDC secretary general Nathan Nandala Mafabi replaced Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda with Hon. Yusuf Nsibambi as their party whip; this was contained in his letter to the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Annet Annita Among.

According to Mafabi, the decision was arrived at in accordance with Section 6 (1) of the party’s constitution, which grants the party powers to replace its leaders at any deemed time. He did not, however, provide reasons for sacking Ssemujju.

The rift in the party intensified in July this year when a group of FDC leaders headed by the Kira Municipality Member of Parliament and also party spokesperson Hon Ssemujju Nganda and Kampala Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago accused the party president Patrick Amuriat Oboi (POA) and Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi of acquiring huge chunks of money, which they baptized “evil money,” from state house to help in organizing the 2021 general elections.

According to Ssemujju, the money whose accountability has never been provided to date was estimated to be in the billions.

“According to the number of cars and houses built during the time this money was received, it’s estimated in the billions,” said Ssemujju Nganda.

This mess attracted the attention of the party’s former presidential candidate, Dr. Kiiza Besigye, whose name appeared on the list of beneficiaries, having allegedly received a share of 300 million shillings.
