No more hope for Katonga group as court stops Birigwa’s Extraordinary Delegates conference

By Kabuye Ronald

The Civil Division of the High court in Kampala has issued an interim injunction stopping the Forum for Democratic Change Extra Ordinary Delegates Conference scheduled for 19th, September, 2023 that was called by the party chairman Ambassador Wasswa Birigwa.

In his ruling given on Friday 15th, September, 2023, High court registrar Kintu Simon Zirintusa halted any FDC party official from holding the extra ordinary delegate’s conference until the main application is disposed of.

”By consent of counsel for respondents, an interim injunction doth issue, halting and restraining the respondents jointly and  severally, and/or their servants, agents, employees, transferees and or any other person or body who may be claiming acting under their under their instructions from holding extra ordinary National delegates conference of the Forum for Democratic change scheduled for 19th day of September 2023 till the final disposal of the main application for temporary injunction or until further orders of this honorable court.

Costs stay in the cause” ruled Registrar Kintu.

The application was given in the presence of Mr.Mangeni Ivan Geofrey counsel for the applicants and Mr. Galisonga Julius for the respondents.

It should be noted that three people Ntale Arafat Mwanja, Wante Jamal and Marlick Ssazi petitioned High court challenging the actions of the FDC, its president and secretary general of calling for the extraordinary Delegates conference before conclusion of the electoral process as was resolved by the national council and National Executive Committee.

The extra ordinary Delegates Conference was the only hope for the Katonga faction led by the former party president Dr. Kizza Besigye, Lukwago Erias, Ssemujju Nganda and Wasswa Biriggwa to impeach the FDC party President Patrick Amuriat Oboi and its Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi.
