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

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

Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo

 

Forum For Democratic Change (FDC) party has officially dismissed its Deputy President, Owek. Joyce Naboosa Ssebugwawo accusing her of defying  Article 12 of the party constitution.

Sebugwawo who has been a strong FDC stalwart for the last 20 years was appointed by  Museveni in his new cabinet, an appointment which she has declined to turn down as per party demands saying her effort in opposition was never recognized neither valued.

“Those who want me to turn down Museveni’s appointment where were they when Hon. 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 Lubaga, Buganda and Uganda at large?” Sebugwawo was quoted saying soon after being appointed.

However, FDC President Patrick Oboi Amuriat has announced that Ssebugwawo now ceases to be a party member. This has been announced in the statement reading thus;

”As you are aware by now Owek. Joyce Naboosa Ssebugwawo formerly Deputy President has been appointed State Minister in the junta Administration. I can confirm that she has accepted the appointment and as a result has offended Article 12 of the FDC Constitution. She, therefore, ceases to be a member of FDC and has accordingly voluntarily relinquished her position as Deputy President.

All of you will appreciate the hard work, sacrifice and commitment that Owek. Joyce Naboosa Ssebugwawo put into the formation, growth and running of the party over the last more than 20 years of her political life. It is this political investment that she has out of her own volition chosen to abandon especially at this time when the struggle to free this country has reach a critical stage and requires all of us. Her decision to leave the party in order to join our tormentor is purely personal and the organs of the FDC were never consulted. She now joins our former colleagues who earlier on parted ways with us leaving behind an even stronger party. My firm belief is that her departure although hurting the organization will not lead to our disintegration and should encourage us to even work harder in pursuit of our goals.

I wish to appeal to you my dear friends to desist from unnecessary attacks on the person of Owek. Joyce Naboosa Ssebugwawo as this does not add any value to our political mission and is not in our culture as FDC. After consultation with the Organs of the party, I will be appointing a caretaker Deputy President within a period of two weeks to replace her.

To Mama Joyce Naboosa Ssebugwawo I wish you well in whatever you hope to achieve for your country using your new assignment. The FDC doors remain open to you and whoever left us before just in case you may wish to return”. Patrick Amuriat Oboi noted
