KAMPALA - FDC party president Gen. Mugisha Muntu has apologised to all party members over the wrongs committed by the members of his campaign team during recent party presidential elections.
Muntu, who appeared before the Truth Telling and Reconciliatory Commission mid this week at the party headquarters at Najjanankumbi, said he also used to get messages from individuals purporting to act on his behalf threatening other party members.
“I own up to all the wrong that happened during the exercise,” Muntu said.
He admitted for having had some errant individuals on his side but cannot establish their particular identities since it was a huge team.
He said he was still trying to search for those unidentified people who were involved in such methods.
“I take responsibility for every thing I do but at that time it seems there are people who acted on my behalf,” Muntu said.
On the other hand, Muntu attributed the internal bickering within the FDC to orchestrated moves by the Government to depict FDC as a party that is not credible.
“There is an invisible hand that has continued to exist to purport that there is no opposition that is capable of leading Uganda,” Muntu said.
He termed the moves as a “focal point of psychological warfare” used by the detractors to weaken the FDC from both within and outside.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the commission, Ladislus Rwakafuzi, asked for two more weeks to enable them accomplish the tasks.
The commission had been given 30 days to carry out the necessary inquiries.
