Maj Gen (Rtd) Mugisha Muntu has said the statement alleging that he threw in the towel away from Uganda’s main opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).

According to the former party president, the statement making rounds on social media was carelessly released prematurely.

He says the official communication will be made on his social media accounts.

The statement making rounds on social media reads, “Fellow Ugandans, following our nationwide consultations that were carried out between 15/1/2018 and 7/9/2018, I today [Tuesday] held a meeting with party president of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Hon. Patrick Oboi Amuriat to discuss our findings and resolutions. I hereby would like to inform the country of our decision to leave the FDC with immediate effect. We will be holding a press conference on Thursday the 27th of October 2018 to discuss this and our future plans in detail. God bless you all,” the statement reads.

It should be noted that after the party elections, the rift between Muntu and the current party president Patrick Amuriat Oboi deepened and recently, as the party appointed new leadership at parliament, Oboi dropped all Muntu allies saying that he they were not cooperative.
