Kampala I Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has sacked the Kiira Municipality MP, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda as its party whip in Parliament.
Nganda’s sacking has come as a shock to many – although it was highly expected to happen. Also the FDC party spokesperson, Nganda is among those calling for a change in FDC leadership.
Alongside founding president Dr Kizza Besigye, Erias Lukwago, Doreen Nyanjura, Francis Mwijukye and others, the Katonga-based faction accuse Nandala and Patrick Oboi Amuriat of receiving ‘dirty money’ from the ruling party ahead of 2021 genera elections.
Oboi and Nandala denied ever receiving any money from anybody in NRM even after Besigye said so.

In what appears to be “making the change Ssemujju asked for”, Nandala who is the Secretary General of the troubled blue party has sacked now his archrival.
In a letter dated August 7 to the Speaker of Parliament, Nandala communicated the appointment of Yusuf Nsibambi as party whip for FDC.
“In accordance with section 6J (1), the party hereby appoints Hon. Yusuf Nsibambi as the party whip of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) to replace Hon Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda.
“In the same vein, we hereby withdraw Hon. Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda as the party whip with immediate effect,” Mafabi’s letter to Speaker Anita Among reads.
