The Resident district commissioner for Kasese district received over 70 FDC membership cards from defectors in Bwesumbu sub-county, Busongora North Kasese district who joined the National resistance Movement.

Over 70 members left FDC for NRM
While speaking to Mubuyawalire Eric one of the defectors said his reason to join the NRM is linked to the defection of the prior Opposition giants in Kasese district. “The likes of Kibanzanga Christopher, Winnie Kiiza all moving away from the FDC shows there is no way to go in the party, Eric believes.”
Eric added that the clash between the Rwenzururu King and the government of Uganda in 2016 was stirred up by the fact that Kasese was all painted blue arguing that before Kasese was blue it was peaceful place.
Yusuf Masereka the former Prime Minister of the Obusinga Bwa Rwenzururu says the FDC party had been lying to the public that they can only handle all the problems of the Kingdom until they sensitized them about joining the ruling government.

The RDC for Kasese district Lt. Joe Walusimbi applauded the converts saying they have showed that they really know what’s going on.
In inclusive interview with the Kasese district FDC chairperson Saulo Maate, said it was a planned move by NRM leaders in Bwesumbu sub-county.
