Selfish party leaders putting an end to FDC Defiance campaign

The Management of FDC Party is dividing itself over the decision whether to remain in defiance or be compliant and plan for the next steps. The biggest problem is now on the seat of Leader of Opposition, which the laws governing the Ugandan parliament, to appoint, are demanding them. In addition, must be from the Leading opposition party which has more members in the parliament which is FDC with 37 MPS.
Now the Management has failed to conclude whether to appoint the Leader of Opposition (LOP) or remain in defiance. Some party Members including Former LOP Nandala Mafabi who is also the Budadiri West MP, Outgoing LOP Wafula Oguttu who lost in the elections, Ingrid Turinawe the Mobilization secretary want the post to be rejected. Their stand is that if they accept the post of Leader of Opposition, they would then be accepting the defeat that they lost the elections yet for them they are saying that they won the elections with the Majority, 52% but were rigged off their win.
Other party members including Winnie Kizza, Cecilia Ogwal and Ogenga Latigo who was the Leader of Opposition in 8th Parliament are supporting the fact that the Leader of Opposition should be appointed and start moving on with the activities of the party in the parliament. Ssemujju Nganda is also supporting the fact that the Leader of Opposition should be appointed though he is trying to hide in between the two sides. “A process of naming a leader is on and we are going to have a leader in Parliament” Mr Semujju Nganda said. However, he is saying that the Leader will not be with the title “Leader of Opposition”.
Winnie Kizza, Cecilia Ogwal are chief contenders of the LOP seat and are not ready to lose the opportunity they once prayed for. Major General Mugisha Muntu is also in need to appoint the Leader of Opposition though he wants to get first the stand of the party.

The Leader of opposition is given among other benefits an office space in the parliament building second floor, a motorcade facilitated by the government plus a petty cash of around 3 Billion. It is therefore much clearer that the post is important and can hardly be ignored by those having chances of taking it.
Some analystis have started defining the divisions as the Pro-Besigye against Pro-Muntu, where by the Pro-Besigye are holding on the defiance campaign while the latter want the LOP to be appointed.
Various key opposition supporters have started listing those supporting the appointment of Leader of Opposition as traitors who are putting an end to the Defiance Campaign, which was structured by their leader Kizza Besigye who is currently in Jail charged with Treason case. Among those listed are Ogenga Latigo, Ssemujju Nganda who is the party spokesperson, Mwijukye Francis, Nyanjura Doreen, Winnie Kizza, Cecilia Ogwal and Kampala Woman MP Nagai Nabilah Ssempala. However calling the MPs traitors made other opposition supporters furious, calling for the respect of people’s opinions.
The FDC President Major General Mugisha Muntu might consider holding more meeting to get the consensus as whether to appoint the Leader of Opposition or not, but chances are more visible that the Leader of Opposition might be appointed and this time, a lady, Winnie Kizza or Cecilia Ogwal are having chances of winning the seat.
