The Katonga faction of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) is gearing up for a crucial founders’ engagement, scheduled for Monday next week. This decision was reached during a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting convened in Kasangati, Wakiso district. The meeting aimed to address various party matters and set the direction for the future.
The NEC members, including the interim party president Erias Lukwago, gathered at the residence of Dr. Kiiza Besigye, the founding president of the FDC. The primary focus of the meeting was the upcoming founders’ engagement, during which party members will deliberate on a roadmap.
While specific details about the location of the founders’ meeting were not disclosed, the main agenda is the strategic alignment necessary to advance the proposed roadmap. The roadmap is expected to lead to a delegates’ conference scheduled for March.
The Katonga faction is grappling with several critical questions, with a particular emphasis on the broader battle for liberating Uganda and improving information sharing. The faction plans to reconvene on Thursday to make further preparations ahead of the founders’ engagement.
