Former FDC President Gen Mugisha Muntu has announced that he is leaving the party with immediate effect.

In a brief statement seen by this site, Gen Muntu does not give details but promises to address a press conference on Thursday this week.

This follows months of countrywide consultations after his defeat to Patrick Amuriat.

Gen Muntu has never felt comfortable in the FDC and it is expected that a group of FDC MPs will be joining him to form a new political organisation.

Muntu who has always being accused of being an NRM mole told delegates that it was time for party members to show him the exit if they did not trust him.

On his party, Muntu blamed some leaders in the party of infighting and creating parallel structures during his time as president.

Muntu is backed by at least 25 MPs including Angeline Osege, Abdu Katuntu, Reagan Okumu, Winnie Kiiza, newly elected Kassiano Wadri.
Other FDC-leaning independents such as Gerald Karuhanga and Anita Among are also said to be behind Gen Muntu.

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi is also said to be on the same team with Gen Muntu.

As he returned from the US last week, Bobi Wine was in company of Winnie Kizza who is said to have linked up him in Nairobi.

Meanwhile, Yokasi Bahande who is Winnie Kiiza’s husband is said to be the chairperson of the new political organisation that will be launched soon.

Just recently, Bihande and his wife Kiiza said some armed people had been seen around their home in Kasese something that was linked to the break away from FDC.

Gen Muntu however said that the above statement was released carelessly by a member of his team before sharing another one highlighting the meeting with top FDC leaders.
