Five Democratic Party-DP officials in Bukomansimbi district are facing dismissal from their positions for allegedly plotting against the party and being double agents.  

 

They are Milly Namirembe, the Bukomansimbi North Woman councilor, Andrew Kigozi, the Bukomansimbi District Party Secretary, John Bosco Kasenge, the Bukomansimbi DP party Spokesperson and Bigasa Sub county Deputy speaker, Isaac Lwanga, the Butenda sub county LC V Councilor and District DP mobilization secretary and Holix Yiga, the Bukomansimbi North constituency DP vice chairperson.

   

The Bukomansimbi District DP Executive Committee convened on Friday and resolved to suspend the leaders citing disloyalty to the party.  

Joseph Kamuli, the Bukomansimbi district DP Organizing Secretary, accuses the implicated officials for double dealing between DP and the ruling National Resistance Movement-NRM party.

 

He says despite holding elective party positions within DP structures, the implicated party officials have become disloyal to DP in favor of NRM. 

  According to Kamuli, the affected leaders are openly canvassing political support for the Youth State Minister Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi, who harbors intentions of unseating the incumbent Bukomansimbi district woman member of parliament and DP flag bearer, Veronica Nanyondo. 

He explains that DP party leadership in the district has summoned the implicated officials to give them a fair hearing before a final decision is taken.

Cue out: ……gyambaza muntu.”//       

Moses Lugemwa, another DP leader accuses their colleagues of deliberately distancing them from party activities which raises suspicions.

 

John Bosco Kasenge, one of those facing dismissal from the party, says they are not moved by what he described as illogical threats.

   

He says they have a right to belong anywhere they want until when the campaign period is declared open by the Electoral Commission.
