Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago who recently crossed from the Democratic Party (DP) where he has been a life member since 2004 to FDC on Tuesday, July 28 at the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi. Although he has been allied to FDC and particularly to former FDC presidential candidate, Kizza Besigye’s ‘People’s Government’ where he is deputy president, Lukwago had never officially denounced his former party.
Lukwago said; The time had come to follow his heart and go to primarily cement the bond with a team of patriotic, charismatic leaders who have over the years championed been in the struggle to create political sanity in Uganda to build a free prosperous and just society.
Norbert Mao on Lukwago: His heart has always been in FDC. He is the alter eagle of the FDC. FDC had been his political family for long.#NBSFrontline #NBSUpdates #NBSPolitiCom #UgVotes2021 pic.twitter.com/kPU15b7yYK— NBS Television (@nbstv) July 30, 2020
His former party president of the Democratic Party/DP Robert Mao when asked on the subject during the Nbs Frontline program lamented; Anybody who says he belongs to DP, I do not second guess him. He may not be faithful, but technically he was a member of DP.
Robert Mao also added; Nobody pushed the Lord Mayor out of DP. I believe everybody should go where they find happiness. I wish him well. Even heaven has a rainy day.
