While speaking to reporters in an interview, Birigwa said they have managed to get half the money he needs to organize a delegate conference.
“The FDC delegates conference is still on and the organization is underway. We have been able to put together half of the money required. The delegate conference is needed for us to get to the heart of some of the burning issues within the party,” he said.
It should be noted that he had earlier asked the party leadership to provide money to the tune of sh360 million. This is to get party members to solve the burning issues within the party.
The party’s secretary-general, Nathan Nandala Mafabi, however, said that Birigwa did not inform the party organs. This includes him (the secretary-general), who is the principal accounting officer of the party.
Mafabi said in a letter he issued on September 2 that Birigwa only made mention of the delegate’s conference in the media. He didn’t officially inform the party’s organs.
Mafabi also accused Wasswa Birigwa of implementing resolutions made by Kizza Besigye at the Katonga office. This he said, was not the party’s official organ.
On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, former party president and founding member Kizza Besigye questioned party president Patrick Amuriat.
This was for trying to foil efforts by Birigwa to organize a delegate conference. Besigye argued that Amuriat has no power to stop the party chairperson from going forward with the conference.
