Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The President of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Eng Patrick Amuriat has appointed the City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and the Soroti Woman Member of Parliament Ann Adeke Ebaju as Deputy Presidents.
The Deputy Secretary-General of the FDC Harold Kaija confirmed the appointments. He says the party president had exercised powers given to him by the party constitution to fill positions that had recently fallen vacant.
Lukwago replaces Minister Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo as Deputy President in charge of Buganda. Ssebugwawo was recently appointed by President Museveni as State Minister of ICT.
Adeke Ann Ebajju replaces Kevin Taaka as the Deputy President in charge of the Eastern Region.
Taaka was appointed to the position in 2018 replacing Alice Alaso who had quit the party for Alliance for National Transformation-ANT found by former FDC president Mugisha Muntu.
Eng. Amuriat also appointed former Obongi County Member of Parliament Hassan Kaps Fungaroo as National Mobilization Secretary of the party, a position previously held by Ingrid Turinawe.
Turinawe was suspended from the party after she defied the party and contested as an independent candidate for the Rukungiri MP seat.
