After inviting President Yoweri Museveni as the chief guest for her thanksgiving ceremony in her constituency in Kitgum over the weekend, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has disowned MP Beatrice Anywar as its member.
The party's deputy spokesperson, Paul Mwiru, told journalists at the party's weekly press briefing at their offices in Najjanankumbi , that Anywar left the party when she stood as an independent in the 2016 general elections.
"FDC is a not prison that we need to give a person a letter showing that she has left the party. People leave at their own will like others who join FDC," he noted.
Mwiru noted that since she stood as an independent, Aywar is free to be associated with any group she so wishes.
"Since elections ended, she has not been associating with the party. We cannot regulate her actions because she stood as an independent. So, her inviting the President to her ceremony cannot be part of our business," Mwiru noted.
