Fate Of FDC Delegates Conference Hangs In Balance As Police Deploy Heavily

A misty dark cloud of uncertainty is covering the planned Forum for Democratic Change- FDC delegates conference. The police as well as the High Court ordered the blocking of this conference called by FDC’s National Chairman Wasswa Birigwa.

Regardless though, hundreds of delegates from across the country already made their way to Kampala to attend the meeting.

According to inside sources, delegates started to arrive on Sunday evening despite Police and the High Court condemning the meeting.

“For tomorrow‘s delegates conference, we are ready to crash those planning to disorganize it. This is not the playground for anybody who is looking for trouble,” Birigwa warned on Monday.

High Court Judge Esta Nambayo said the conference should be stayed until a legal challenge against it taking place is heard and resolved.

Stopping the conference came after a heated court session where two rival lawyers looked to represent the party on the matter.

Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and Moses Tugume presented themselves as counsel for the party. However, Julius Galisonga contested this claim saying he was the instructed lawyer.

By Monday evening, about 800 delegates had arrived at different locations in Kampala. From here, they were accredited before going to Busaabala, the said venue for the FDC Delegates Conference.

In other news, however, Wasswa Bigirwa is said to have picked nomination forms for his re-election bid. Augustine Ojabile revealed how Bigirwa is one of those who picked nomination forms for the National Chairperson position.

He claims Bigirwa sent a message via social media to show his interest. In an interview with the press, however, Bigirwa denies ever picking any nomination forms or sending a representative to do so.
