“The party constitution demands that to stand for the presidency of the party, one is required to resign from any leadership position that he holds in FDC before campaigns start,” he added.
Bamwenda said that the leader of opposition has to continue with his duties in his office but he should not dare use any of the public resources such as vehicles, computers and staff during the campaigns.
He added that Mafabi should notify the speaker of parliament of his absence in office and assign someone to represent him.
On the other hand, Bamwenda said the newly elected Kasese Women MP, Winfred Kiiza was gazetted on Friday and she is waiting to be sworn in tomorrow Tuesday at 2:00pm in the parliamentary chambers.
He also warned the NRM members to stop conniving with the electoral officers in Butambala so as to instill election malpractices as it was the case in the Kasese by-elections in which the returning officers were arrested by the police.
Bamwenda added that there is clear evidence that the election registration forms are being altered deleting some voters from the registration form claiming that they are dead and also adding members who are from different residents and districts.
He said this was being done in the areas of Kiwaala, Bugobango and Kabasanda.
Bamwenda said they are to request for the registration forms which they will use during the elections on September 12 to ensure that only the registered voters cast the votes.
He also clarified that the FDC party is behind DP’s Mohamed Muwanga Kivumbi for Butambala by-elections for which nominations are on August 28 and 29th, but they have posted Charles Okule who is to be nominated tomorrow in the morning hours for the by-elections in Usuk against the NRM’s Proscovia Olumiti.
