The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) faction in Najjanankumbi has rejected the letter that Ambassador Wasswa Birigwa, the party chairman, sent to party members on August 15, 2023, informing them of the upcoming September 19, 2023, extra-ordinary national delegates conference.

The above-mentioned document is contrary to that which was issued on August 16th by honourable Toterebuka Boniface Bamwenda, the current party chairperson of the electoral commission, announcing the same conference, which is set to take place on October 6, 2023.

It is upon this controversial information that John Kikonyogo, the party deputy spokesperson, together with other party leaders based in Najjanankumbi, have come out to deny the September 19th delegates conference, stating that they have no knowledge about it.

According to Kikonyogo, the party chairperson Wasswa Birigwa’s special delegates conference did not receive the endorsement of the party leaders, who maintain that he did not include them in any planning for the conference.

Kikonyogo insists that the only delegates conference that the party officials are aware of is the one that is slated for October 8, 2023, and that is aimed at electing the new party national executive committee.

“For you to hold a delegate’s conference, the management must first sit, present the reason for convening the conference, the budget is crafted and passed, and you have to involve the secretariat. But the advertisement put out by the Katonga group did not originate from the secretariat, and it’s unconstitutional,” Kikonyogo said.

According to Kikonyogo, the Najjanankumbi faction accuses Ambassador Birigwa of collaborating with the Katonga faction to intensify party internal squabbles because the October meeting was considered the only solution to the party squabbles.
