The extremist wing of FDC with its parallel secretariat at Katongo Road in Kampala intends to throw its weight behind Robert Kyagulanyi to intensify activism.
Details, this website has landed on show that this splinter group led by FDC founder Kizza Besigye is plotting fresh protests across Kampala and other major towns in the country.
“We simply want to make life hard for Museveni. We wan’t to make Uganda ungovernable,” said an official at Katonga.
With the current implosion at Najjanankumbi, the Katonga squad believes Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine is the only solution.
The FDC secretary general Hon Nandala Mafabi accuses Besigye of planning to sell FDC to NUP.
Mafabi said that in 2020 he refused to attend a meeting summoned by Besigye to discuss how to join People Power which catapulted into National Unity Platform (NUP).
Besigye currently accuses Mafabi of receiving huge amount of money from the State to distablise FDC.
The Katonga faction further claims that the purpose of the funds was to “kill” activism and also “silence” activists like Col Besigye.
Substantiating on the claims of selling FDC to NUP, Besigye last week said there is no problem joining a “friendly force” that subscribes to same ideology of using protests to remove President Museveni from leadership.
“Elections simply legitimize Mr Museveni and his government. And he fears activism,” Besigye said attracting jubilation from his supporters.
Col Besigye, the four-time presidential hopeful refused to contest in the 2021 general elections despite calls from his party.
The Mafabi group also accuses Besigye of abandoning the official party presidential flagbearer Patrick Oboi Amuriat.
‘No choice but to rally behind Bobi Wine’
Speaking to this website about the future of activism in FDC, a top official at Katongo road said the radical wing is moving to engage Bobi Wine.
“Wait you will see Fire Base and Katonga. You don’t know what will come out of that combination,” he said.
This official said Bobi Wine, just like Besigye also faces similar problem of moles infiltrating NUP especially the moderates, a group led by Leader of Opposition (LOP) in parliament Hon Mathias Mpuuga.
“NUP should not celebrate, even them things are the same. It is just a matter of time.”
The official said: “Truth is we don’t like Bobi Wine. But as long as we can use him to reactivate activism why should we work with him?”
Bobi Wine and NUP are yet to make official comments about the ongoing talks with Besigye and his crew.
