FDC Is Full Of Selfish Traitors: Joyce Sebuggwawo Defies FDC As She Declines To Turn Down Museveni’s Appointment As State Minister For ICT

We Can't Deal With Traitors: FDC Officially Dismisses Joyce Ssebugwawo After Taking Up Museveni's Appointment

Kampala: The Newly appointed state minister for ICT and national guidance, Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo has lashed at her party members at the Najjanankumbi based Forum for democratic change[ FDC] who are castigating her after being appointed by the president in the new cabinet that was realized on 8 June 2021. some FDC members have been calling upon the soft-spoken Ssebugwawo to turn down the appointment saying she cant serve and the ruling government which she has been fighting against while in FDC.

However, Ssebugwawo has told off FDC to back off her back because they did no support her when she needed the party support in the recently concluded elections when NUP fronted a candidate against her.

”Those who want me to turn down President Museveni’s appointment, where were they when Mr. Kyagulanyi fronted a candidate against me in the last elections? How come they didn’t call Kyagulanyi to order? Is that how they had to pay me for my selfless service to the people of Lubaga, Buganda and Uganda at large? Those people are traitors, God has remembered me I thank President Museveni for identifying me to serve my nation” – Owek. Joyce Nabbosa Sebuggwawo, New state Minister for ICT said.

President Museveni’s appointment of FDC’s Ssebugwawo as the Minister of State for Information, Communication Technology and National Guidance in the new cabinet has sent cold shivers among her colleagues at Najjanankumbi.

In FDC, Ssebugwawo serves as Vice President in charge of Buganda and has been a close confidante of Dr Kizza Besigye, the founding president of the Najjanankumbi based party.

A senior official of FDC told us that they don’t expect Ssebugwawo to accept the appointment and if she does, “it will be a betrayal of the highest order.”

“Remember that when Patrick Amuriat stepped down as party president to run for president, it is Ssebugwawo who was acting FDC president. This means that she is senior enough to know what is expected of her in this situation. That is to decline the appointment,” said the official who requested anonymity.

Other sources said the party will hold a meeting this week to discuss the appointment.

Sources said that should the former Rubaga Division mayor accept to serve in cabinet, she risks disciplinary action and probably dismissal from the party she helped found.

Ssebugwawo replaces Peter Ogwang who has been appointed Minister of State, Office of the President (Economic Monitoring) and she will be working under Chris Baryomunsi.

She joined the Buganda government in the early 1980s where she worked as a Minister for women, Community Work, and Mobilisation.
