Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party have said they will miss their former President Mugisha Muntu who early last week walk out on the party.

The party however indicated they are already moving forward and looking towards a future where he (Muntu) and others like him are not involved.

In a press conference Monday morning, addressed by the party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, FDC officials called upon members who feel they need to quit the party to do so quickly so they do not inconvenience party planning and political activities.

“We will miss Muntu (Mugisha) and the others, but we can only ask that all FDC leaders be decent enough. If you are no longer in FDC please inform us, there are certain people who want to take over these positions,” Ssemujju said.

“We want to invite our colleagues not to stand on the fence, the moment you are not in FDC you tell us so we fill that position. We don’t want to have offices that are not working,” he added.

The party also announced they will have a seminar and celebrations on independence day to discuss the prospects of realigning themselves to realise dreams of the party.

According to Ssemujju, the seminar will have a guest speaker who is yet to be named and it is open to all members of the public. It will take place at the party offices in Najjanakumbi, Entebbe road.

Gen Mugisha Muntu last week announced he was quitting the party along side Deputy President for Eastern Uganda and former Serere legislator, Alice Alaso.

The two would then indicate they were leading others who will be announced in due process to launch the New Formation party. Alaso and Muntu claimed they decided to quit the party for its constant internal bickering and the Besigye cult following that limits objective reasoning and criticism.
