Party politics is taking a new turn with almost all political parties mired in deep confusion and division, the Democratic Party (DP), the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC), the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and now the National Unity Platform (NUP).
This raises questions about whether, under the current political dispensation, Uganda can successfully achieve the change that everyone seems to be craving. Information received by our editorial office stated that the party’s members and representatives only changed the party’s name in August 2019, without amending the constitution or anything else, and later convened a meeting chaired by Nkunge Moses Kibalama. Nkonge Moses Kibalama, at which Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu was present. , Joel Senyonyi, Ssimbwa Paul Kagombe, Fred Nyanzi Sentamu, Flavia Ka Flavia Kalule Nabagabe, Aisha Kabanda and David Lewis Rubongoya respectively assumed leadership positions to support the then party’s current There was leadership, but surprisingly, the entire party leadership was overwhelmed when it was vilified and stolen by the power-hungry amorphous People Power Brigade, when all the party machinery lost its vitality.
This exerted great pressure on the original representatives of the National Unity Platform and other leaders, so much so that the two factions still disagree. The spirit of the party is growing in the hearts of the party’s founders, as evidenced by the establishment of the Kabowa headquarters, a faction led by Nkunge Moses Kibalama, which even held a congress on the 27th in accordance with the party constitution Challenges were raised by the Electoral Commission (EC) in July 2022, but the party still maintains that the electoral body made a mistake as it has no authority to interact with the internal decisions of the party, especially those taken by representatives of that particular party .
At a closed-door meeting of the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) convened by then party chairman Nkonge Moses Kibalama, a number of resolutions were adopted, including the resignation of the chairman, who was in declining health All members present at the meeting unanimously agreed that Ssimbwa Paul Kagombe, the party’s former secretary-general and senior administrative secretary, should take over as chairman.
When contacted for comment, former chairman Nkonge Moses Kibalama confirmed the development and the expected changes that would bring the party back to its glory days. According to the Kibalama-led Central Executive Committee, the new party chairman will be unveiled to the public at a follow-up meeting scheduled for November, with a specific date to be notified later.
When approached for comment, the current chairman of the National Unity Platform faction among the founders hinted to Mighty Watchdog News that he is ready to take up the position and is looking forward to receiving any benefits from those who have nothing left to offer the party and the country, Rather seeking his own material interests, he believes that Ugandans need to be very careful with the Kyagulanyi-led faction because of the corrupt tendencies of the people that Kyagulanyi is dealing with, including the interception of impartial people. Unresolved questions continue as to who is at the leadership of the party, with the chairman of the Lib Dem Party, Waswa Birigwa, coming into focus as Sentamu’s National Unity Platform faction made no mention of it at all.
