Former Forum for Democratic Change Secretary General Alice Alaso has told opposition Forum for Democratic Change party to remain silent as New Formation recruit their supporters because they did the same political parties.
“We continue working towards a country in which the majority of political forces believe in institutional and structured government that is focused not on retaining power for an individual or group of people, but serving all Ugandans”…Hon. Alice Alaso, now an executive member of New Formation said.
She was reacting to recent uproars from the public following the recent defection of 63 FDC Ankole leaders to the yet to be formed political party headed General Mugisha Muntu.
“The natural effect of our departure was that there were some people that would join us and others that wouldn’t. It is very unfair, perhaps even undemocratic therefore, for anyone to start accusing us of recruiting from within the FDC,” she noted.
Alaso noted that, the FDC came into existence as a result of individuals crossing from various political parties including NRM, DP, UPC and other political outfits at the time.
“We would like to state that the initial offer we made to the FDC leadership to set up a joint committee with the duty of managing the post-separation process still stands.” Alaso said.
She added: “We firmly believe that if we handle this process maturely and properly, it will result in better coordination among the opposition.”
Her statement comes after several members of public accuses Mugisha Muntu for working hard to destroy the party he led for five years.
