Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has officially replaced legislators Paul Mwiru (Jinja East) and Kassiano Ezati Wadri (Arua Municipality) in the new appointments to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.
Mwiru who has recently been hobnobbing with People Power’s Bobi Wine and closely following Mugisha Muntu of the New Formation, was dropped as Deputy Spokesperson and replaced with Mr. John Kikonyogo.
Kassiano Wadri, who violated party directives and stood as an independent candidate in the Arua Municipality byelections has also been dropped as deputy mobiliser for Northern region and replaced by Fungaroo Hassan Kaps.
Meanwhile Kevinah Taaka Wanaha becomes the new party Deputy President for Eastern Uganda, replacing Alice Alaso who abandoned the party to co found the New Formation together with former President, Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu.
While forming their party, Alaso and Muntu revealed they had left FDC with a number of officials. It was later discovered that Yokas Bihande, the deputy mobiliser for Western region had jumped out with them.
Bihande is the husband to former Leader of Opposition on Parliament (LoP) Wiinie Kiiza. Bihande has recently declared his allegiance to Muntu’s New Formation. He has consequently been replaced by Moses Tugume in FDC’s NEC.
