KAMPALA – The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) will on December 16th, 2019 mark its 15th year of existence.
Addressing the press on Monday, Ssemujju Ngada, the party Spokesperson has said that the ceremony aimed at reinvigorating Uganda’s leading political party, will take place at Mandela National Stadium in Namboole in one of the facility’s parking.
“Over 10,000 FDC leaders and members from all over the country are expected to grace the ceremony. The FDC has also invited leaders from sister political parties in Uganda and from the African continent,” said Nganda.
Nganda said that FDC was born on December 16th 2004 out of a merger of three political platforms; Reform Agenda, Parliamentary Advocacy Forum (PAFO) and National Democratic Front (NDF).
He said that at the same function, the leaders will exchange mind on how to fight dictatorship in Uganda.
“It is at this function that the FDC will unveil a robust programme that will guide the final push against the dictator and dictatorship,” he said.
Nganda also reminded the party members and supporters that the recently announced zonal teams will be in respective villages to check on the health of the party.
“In villages where no leadership exist, a committee of six comprising two youth (male and female), an elder, person with a disability, a woman and one more member will be put in place. The committee of six will organize members to elect five more leaders who together will make eleven. The eleven per village will elect parish leadership and later sub-county. These leaders will run the FDC affairs until general internal elections are organized.”
