FDC to Hold Parallel Independence Day Celebrations

Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) will hold parallel Independence Day celebrations to mark 56 years of Uganda’s liberation from colonial rule.

The national Celebrations to mark the 56th Independence Day Anniversary will be held at Kasasa Sub-county, Kyotera District on Tuesday 9th October, 2018.

The party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda told journalists on Monday that FDC will hold their celebrations at the Party Headquarters in Najjanankumbi on Independence Day (Tuesday, 9th October 2018).

“This will help us reflect on the aspirations of our forefathers who fought to bring independence to our country. A number of Experts have already been contacted to come and give several lectures on the Independence,” Ssemujju Nganda said.

“We will also reflect on how we lost that power to Mr. Museveni and his gun and stick-wielding groups. We will also look forward to getting solutions on how we are going to reclaim our power back to the people,” he added.

On former Party President (Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu) leaving FDC, The Party Spokesperson, Hon Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda noted that the Party will miss him just like those who have left it or passed on like founding Chairperson Hon. Dr. Sulaiman Kiggundu who died in 2008 and his successor Hon. Sam Kalega Njuba who also died in 2012, but he said; “Leaving is a natural consequence that cannot stop the Party from going ahead.”

He implored all those who would wish to leave to inform the Party in time so that other people can replace them, FDC has very capable people that can serve.
