Forum for Democratic Change president, Patrick Amuriat, has broken the silence about a group of party leaders who quit to join Maj.Gen.Mugisha Muntu’s ‘New Formation’. A total of 63 leaders from the biggest opposition political party Forum for Democratic Change in Ankole region on Thursday announced crossing over to Gen.Mugisha Muntu’s New Formation. “We, the FDC leaders of Ankole sub-region gathered here, hereby inform members of the press and the general public that with effect from today 25 October 2018 have officially resigned our leadership positions in FDC party and have therefore ceased to be members of Forum for Democratic Change,” said the group in a joint press statement at a function held at Freedom Gardens in Mbarara town. Speaking to journalists in Soroti on Saturday, Amuriat said the party is still looking carefully at the group because others had changed their minds and returned to the biggest opposition party only hours after announcing their exit.
