The People’s Front For Transition Is Not Besigye’s – FDC

Opposition political party FDC has come out to clarify that the alliance which was formed amongst a host of political parties, the People’s Front for Transition (PFT) is not Besigye’s vehicle.

It should be recalled that this coalition was announced a few days ago amongst top politicians from the opposition. It has however so far created different opinions amongst the public.

Some see it as a vehicle manned by the former presidential candidate Kiiza Besigye to return to the front of Ugandan opposition politics.

However, FDC said that the front belongs to all Ugandans who support change. It’s apparently a platform for the oppressed people who are willing to fight to end the NRM junta.

…No one owns the front, let’s not confuse the common Ugandans,” FDC tweeted.

The main objective of this platform is to have President Museveni ousted before 206. There was however a notable concern as NUP and Bobi Wine were left out of the coalition.

NUP spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi later came out to say that they had not been invited although he later refuted these statements.

FDC through a number of it’s members, however, said that they had invited NUP but the Kamwokya-based party turned down the offer. It’s alleged that NUP sees the PFT as a movement similar to People Power.

They, therefore, preferred Besigye to join Bobi Wine with his People Power instead of the reverse.

Besigye also came out himself to say that Bobi Wine had been invited but he decided not to join.

He added that the NUP president was however receptive of the idea and they will be attacking the regime from different fronts.

Although it’s indiscreet, there seems to be a row between NUP and FDC over the balance of power. The officials from the two parties have been aiming digs at each other in the past few days.
