FDC Katonga Faction’s Attempt to Halt Najjanankumbi Delegates Conference Fails

Highlights:

  • Bid to Block FDC Najjanankumbi Delegates Conference Unsuccessful
  • High Court Rejects FDC Katonga Faction’s Conference Objection
  • Najjanankumbi Delegates Conference Proceeds Despite FDC Faction’s Legal Challenge

In a recent court decision, Justice Ssekaana ruled against the Katonga faction of the Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), who sought to block the FDC national delegates conference scheduled for today at Najjanankumbi. The Katonga faction, led by FDC national chairperson Mr. Wasswa Birigwa and 27 others, argued that they would lose their positions if the conference proceeded. They also contended that Mr. Boniface Toterebuka Bamwenda, the chairperson of the FDC electoral commission, did not have the authority to organize the conference and elections.

However, Justice Ssekaana dismissed the interim application, stating that the Katonga faction filed the suit and application as individual FDC members against a fellow member, omitting the FDC itself as a corporate entity. The judge questioned whether the parties involved were acting in the best interests of the party or pursuing personal benefits. Justice Ssekaana emphasized the importance of protecting the FDC as a whole and expressed concerns about the financial and economic losses that would result from halting the conference, which had already attracted over 1000 accredited delegates.

Additionally, Justice Ssekaana criticized the timing of the Katonga faction’s application for a temporary injunction, as they filed it just two days before the conference was scheduled to take place. The judge deemed this delay as an act of bad faith, further contributing to the rejection of their request for an injunction.
