FDC makes a U-turn on IPOD attendance

By Damalie Mukhaye. 

The opposition forum for democratic change have made a U-turn, they will not attend the forth coming Inter Party organisation for  democracy summit slated on Wednesday this week in Lira.

Addressing journalists at their headquarters in Najjanakumbi, the party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda says that the issues that barred them from attending the summit last year in December have not been addressed.

He says that they are still under siege by various security agencies, their legitimate rights to associate and assembly are still being curtailed but the IPOD has kept quiet.

He notes that different reforms they agreed upon as different political parties have not been worked upon five years down the road hence they cannot attend the summit.

This is not the first time FDC has chickened out of the summit.
