Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party president, Gen. Mugisha Muntu, has declared that he will form his own political party after breaking away from his former opposition  party.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday at hotel Africana, Muntu announced that he has made a new alliance ” the new formation” as the current political group but promised to launch the official party on December 25, 2018.

He added that all the features of the party, say; the colour, slogan, symbol and objectives will be determined by the situations that will be evident from now to the date of the launch.

Ex-army commander also urged other politicians from various political groups to join the cause, as,  Muntu states, it is not intended at damaging or mudslinging others but to unite the whole opposition.

“We are also reaching out to the progressive leaders within the Movement (NRM). (…) We need to reach out to each other so that we form a strong and credible alternative,” he said.

Muntu also insists on his tactic of engaging the public to have “an inclusive, forward-thinking and ideologically sound process”.

On the issue of leaving FDC, Muntu highlighted internal wars as the major precursor of his move.

“We became a destabilising factor in all the Opposition,” Muntu said. “We have fought each other to the point of paralysis.” he remarked.
