Dr. Kizza Besigye, has acknowledged that he has used his influence within the Forum for Democratic Change -FDC through legitimate means.
This comes in response to claims by the embattled party president, Patrick Oboi Amuriat, who accuses Besigye of exerting too much control over the party, potentially causing conflicts.
During an interview with NBS, Besigye stated that it is undemocratic individuals like Amuriat and his colleagues who wish to prevent others from influencing the party.
The four-time presidential candidate clarified that he does not hold any decision-making positions within the party’s organs.
Besigye questioned if he was the one preventing Amuriat from holding national executive committee meetings and making decisions using those committees.
He emphasized that if he, as a party member, has ideas that are considered useful by others, the party should democratically process those ideas using its established organs.
He pointed out that accusations against him have never been presented before the party’s policy organs over the past five years. END.
