Two opposition political parties (FDC and JEEMA) have Wednesday afternoon failed to agree on a joint opposition candidate for Bugiri municipality MP seat after having their first dialogue at the FDC Najjanankumbi headquarters.
Addressing the media about the closed door meeting, Hon Proscovia Salam Musumba the deputy FDC party president Eastern Uganda who was the spokesperson of the meeting said that they are to continue having such meetings until they arrive at a common stand.
Hon Salamu said that they have not only discussed Bugiri issues but also national matters have been handled and they will brief the nation once they conclude their dialogue agenda.
“We want the country to know that JEEMA and FDC today have met and out meeting tackled several issues specifically of national importance and we can assure you, we shall communicate once our meetings are done because and Bugiri has been the main agenda but this isn’t the right time to communicate the resolutions” Hon Musumba clarified.
JEEMA’s delegation was led by former presidential candidate Mr. Kibirige Mayanja and former Makindye west legislator Hon Hussein Kyanjo whereas FDC was led by the party president Patrick Oboia Amuriat, chairman Amb. Wasswa Birigwa, chief party mobilizer Ms Ingrid Turinawe, Buganda youth chairman Walid Lubega among others.
