The Forum for Democratic Change-FDC delegate’s conference has voted Mawokota South Member of Parliament Yusuf Nsibambi as the party chief whip in parliament.
In August, the Forum for Democratic Change-FDC withdrew Kira Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Semujju Nganda from the position of party chief whip in parliament and appointed Nsibambi to replace him.
In a letter dated 7 August 2023 authored by the party Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi and addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, Nandala communicated the appointment of Nsimbambi to replace Kiira Municipality MP Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda as the party chief whip.
However, the Speaker, Anita Among declined the appointment on the grounds that Nsibambi’s position had not gone through the right procedures of the party.
Now at the party delegate’s conference at the Patidar Samaj Sports Ground in Lugogo Kampala, Mafabi asked members to make a vote on the matter. Hon. Mafabi speaking….
He started the process leading to the election but was guided to let the meeting chairman, Mukalazi Kibuuka lead the process.
When Kibuuka put the matter to vote, the results as announced by himself indicated that 965 delegates voted in favor of Nsimbambi, 08 opposed the appointment and 9 abstained.
Kibuuka hence announced Nsibambi as the next FDC Chief Whip in Parliament.
Details of the delegate’s conference will come in our subsequent news bulletins. END.
