Ex-FDC boss Mugisha Muntu warns of party split as he hands over office
The new president Patrick Oboi Amuriat has promised to establish a reconciliation committee to handle the issues raised by the disgruntled members.

Patrick Oboi Amuriat was today officially sworn in as the third President of the Forum for Democratic Change at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi.  Amuriat succeeds Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu who lost the party presidential elections last week.

Leaders from other political parties witnessed the ceremony.

In his speech, Mugisha Muntu indicated that the party was polarized in its strategy on how to capture power and later transform the country.

Muntu noted that he will continue to consult Ugandans and party leaders on how to harmonise the two.

Muntu however hinted at the possibility of leaving the party if its leadership does not resolve these internal contradictions.

Muntu also criticised party leaders who campaigned along tribal lines during the party presidential race.

In his message, the new president Patrick Oboi Amuriat, asked Muntu and other disgruntled party members not to leave the party.

He also promised to set up a reconciliation committee to look into the differences that became evident during the elections.

At the same ceremony, Buhweju County MP Francis Mwijukye took oath as Deputy Secretary in charge of mobilization and Habib Buwembo as Secretary for Labor.
