The former Deputy Secretary General of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Dr. Joseph Tindyebwa, has announced his decision to withdraw from active participation in FDC politics.

He made this announcement during a ceremony held at Najanankumbi, which was attended by the party's Chief Administrative Officer.

Symbolizing his departure from the role of National Deputy Secretary General for Policy and Research, he formally handed over the "instruments of power, file & stamp."

Tindyebwa expressed his gratitude to his political supporters and the citizens of Uganda.

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the support that the National FDC delegates have granted me during my tenure," he stated.

He highlighted his achievements during his time in office, which included representing the party in international forums and serving as the National Director for Political Research and Coordinator for the party's strategic plan.

"Fellow countrymen and countrywomen, I want to inform my political supporters and the citizens of Uganda that today I have handed over the instruments of power, file & stamp at Najanankumbi as the former National Deputy Secretary General for Policy and Research," Tindyebwa announced.

He emphasized his commitment to serving humanity in other organizations and capacities.

"The Bible says there is a time for everything under the sun. I have decided to withdraw from active participation in FDC politics as I continue to serve humanity in other organizations and capacities," he stated.

Dr. Tindyebwa expressed his gratitude to all those who supported him throughout his tenure.

Before his involvement in politics, Dr. Tindyebwa served in the civil service of Kabale District Local Government as a Sub-County Chief, Senior Assistant Secretary, and later as Assistant Chief Administrative Officer from 2004 to 2010.

In 2006 and 2010, he contested for the Rubanda East parliamentary seat in the NRM primaries but was unsuccessful on both occasions. In 2017, driven by his desire to represent Uganda in the East African Legislative Assembly, he sought the FDC Party ticket.

This was not the first time Dr Tindyebwa joined the opposition. In 2000, he was among the youth activists of the reform agenda until he joined the NRM government as a civil servant in 2004. He later left the NRM in January 2012 to join the FDC.

Dr. Tindyebwa was born on April 1, 1979, in Rwara village, currently Karukara Ward, Hamurwa Town Council, Rubanda County East. He is married to Suzan Tindyebwa and they have four children.

He has extensive experience in teaching and research, including research supervision and lecturing at various universities in East Africa, such as Kabale University, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology Kigali campus in Rwanda, Independent University of Rwanda, University of Kigali, Kampala International University, and Bishop Barham University College, Uganda Christian University Kabale from 2009 to 2020.

Dr Joseph Tindyebwa holds a PhD in Management Science in Public Management, a Master's Degree in Public Administration and Management, a postgraduate diploma in Project Development and Management, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Arts and a Diploma in Education. He is a registered graduate teacher.

He has also received additional postgraduate training through short courses, including a certificate in Administrative Law, and he is currently pursuing a PhD in Education through research at Makerere University.

His previous technical and political contributions to the development of the Forum for Democratic Change party's national manifesto from 2016 to 2021 are still highly regarded.
