  • FDC tough expels deputy President Joyce Ssebugwawo over her Museveni ministerial appointment. Whisper Eye News

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has come out to react to the appointment of its deputy president Joyce Nabosa Ssebugwawo as a minister in the just-announced president Museveni cabinet.

According to FDC, Joyce has accepted the appointment and as a result, it has offended Article 12 of the FDC Constitution and therefore she ceases to be a member of FDC and has accordingly voluntarily relinquished her position as Deputy President.

FDC party president Eng Patrick Amuriat also appreciated Joyce Ssebugwawao hard work, sacrifice and commitment that she put into the formation, growth and running of the party over the last more than 20 years of her political life.

It is this political investment that she has out of her own volition chosen to abandon especially at this time when the struggle to free this country has reach a critical stage and requires all of us. Eng stated.

Her decision to leave the party in order to join our tormentor is purely personal and the organs of the FDC were never consulted. She now joins our former colleagues who earlier on parted ways with us leaving behind an even stronger party. He continued to state.

He explained that her departure although hurting the organization will not lead to FDC disintegration and should encourage them even to work harder in pursuit of its goals.

I wish to appeal to you my dear friends to desist from unnecessary attacks on the person of Owek. Joyce Naboosa Ssebugwawo as this does not add any value to our political mission and is not in our culture as FDC. After consultation with the Organs of the party, I will be appointing a caretaker Deputy President within a period of two weeks to replace her. Eng POA appealed.

This week Ugandans were shocked when president Museveni picked Joyce Ssebugwawo a staunch FDC founder and also party deputy president as a minister in his new cabinet.
