Sanyu Gideon Ntabose, the Forum for Democratic Change’s former parliamentary candidate in the recent elections in Kasese municipality, has been suspended from the party for engaging in anti-party activities.

Mbaju Jackson Tatikha, the former Member of Parliament for Busongora South who ran as an independent candidate after losing the FDC ticket to another candidate, was spotted in court calling affidavits for the election appeal of Ntabose. Later, he joined the National Unity Platform (NUP).

Bwambale Godfrey Bwerere, Mbathulhawu James, and Mbaju have all been expelled from the FDC for running as independent candidates in violation of the party’s constitution.

According to a letter signed by FDC Secretary-General Nathan Nandala Mafabi and addressed to Kasese district chairperson Saulo Mate and other party officials, the implicated members’ actions are jeopardizing the party’s efforts to uphold the constitution.

According to the letter, Ntabose will face the disciplinary committee for a series of unexplained and uncoordinated acts, both locally and nationally, in blatant violation of the party’s position.

Bwambale Godfrey Bwerere, one of the terminated members, told the media that the FDC should not bother because he was aware of the party constitution when he decided to run as an independent candidate. He claims he left the party a year ago.
