Opposition members of parliament who have been dropped from leadership of parliament in the recent reshuffle have expressed their disappointment in the leadership of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party. Many of them were left shocked following the reshuffle announced by Patrick Amoriat Oboi yesterday.
Abdu Katuntu who is one of the sacked MP said the changes made by the party president is more than just reshuffle but has been purge.
While appearing as one of the panelists on Capital gang on Saturday morning, Katuntu said many people who were kicked out of leadership were the founding members of FDC party and have been regarded as eminent persons within the FDC.
He added that they are going meet and forge a way forward before announcing the next course of action.
He continued by saying that people like Okumu Reagan and Professor Ogenga Latigo shouldn’t have been kicked out in that degrading manner.
Katuntu statement came just a day after Aruu county member of parliament Samuel Odonga Otto came out publicly to criticize the party leadership accusing them of working to degenerate the party into comedy theatre.
Otto said the reshuffle is a clear indication that come 2021, FDC would lose the election as it has shown lack of seriousness in building the cohesion within the party.
In related development, the lango sub region elders have also expressed their disappointment saying they have been sidelined in the recent reshuffle since none of their son was considered for the appointment.
FDC Secretary for Mobilization the iron lady Ingrid Turinawe has however dismissed the fear saying changes in parliament is necessary and is good for the development of the party. She added that it is important for political parties to groom young people in leadership other than maintaining old people in the same position while neglecting those who are always regarded as leaders of tomorrow.
