Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has Tuesday duly nominated Kawempe South Member of Parliament (MP), Mubaraka Munyagwa to run for the party presidency for the term 2017-2021.
The lawmaker has thus committed to rebrand the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) as well as amending the party constitution.
“I am so grateful for this party for this opportunity granted to me despite being one and half year old in the party; I am much impressed by the democracy exhuded, some people thought I couldn’t be nominated,” Munyagwa told the media.
“As I told you earlier, I am coming with fundamental changes, we have a small constitution with a few pages; I will amend it in order to rebrand the party,” Munyagwa said.
Munyagwa said that once voted into power, he would first look at changing the different party titles and structures to suit the struggle for change.
“The title of the president general will be merged with another title called the Commander in Chief and once I become the president general of the party, I will be as well the commander in chief of this great party, all party members will be referred to as freedom fighters.”
Munyagwa added that he will work towards creating units at the village level and the sub county chairperson shall be the Chief Freedom Fighter while the District chairperson shall be the Battalion Commander.
“The National Executive Committee (NEC) shall be the High Command, the National Council shall be the Revolutionary Council and the headquarter shall be the revolutionary house.”
Munyagwa is set to face other contenders who among others include; the incumbent, Gen Gregory Mugisha Muntu, former Kumi District MP, Patrick
