Ssemujju fired as FDC party whip, replaced with Yusuf Nsibambi

Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda has been replaced as FDC party chief whip

KAMPALA, (UG): Kira Municipality Member of Parliament (MP) Hon Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda has been dismissed as the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) whip with immediate effect.

According to a letter addressed to the Speaker of Parliament by the FDC Secretary General, Mr Nathan Nandala Mafabi, Ssemujju has been replaced by Mawokota South MP Yusuf Nsibambi as the new chief whip going forward.

“In accordance with section 6 (I), the party hereby appoints Hon. Yusuf Nsibambi as the Party Whip of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) to replace Hon Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda,” Nandala’s letter to Speaker Among reads in part.

“In the same vein, we hereby withdraw Ssemujju Nganda as the party’s chief whip with immediate effect,” the letter adds.

Yusufu Nsibambi, the newly appointed FDC party whip has pledged to spearhead the party’s parliamentary caucus intervention in the ongoing party wrangles.

Ssemujju’s dismissal comes at a time when the once biggest opposition political party is at loggerheads over internal fights surrounding allegations of “dirty money” from the ruling government.

The fights started when Ssemujju, who also doubles as the party spokesperson accused Mafabi and the party president Mr. Patrick Amuriat of picking money from President Museveni to fund their 2021 campaigns.

Ssemujju however remains to be the party spokesperson, a position he has held for years, and it remains unclear if Nandala will as well fire him from the party position going forward.

The developments come at the backdrop of an announcement by Dr Kiiza Besigye during his press conference on Monday in which he revealed that he and a team of disgruntled FDC members will go around the country urging the FDC supporters to reclaim their party from the jaws of the junta where Nandala and Amuriat have placed it in exchange for cash.
