The opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has identified two suitable candidates to replace their former Vice President for Buganda Region, Joyce Ssebugwawo who recently defected from the party to serve in president Museveni’s cabinet as ICT state minister
The duo is Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago and the former Makindye division MP, Ibrahim Kasoozi.
According to sources within the FDC, the party leaders are yet to agree on who should replace Ssebugwawo with some supporting Lukwago while others supporting Kasozi.
When contacted, the party president Patrick Amuriat did not refute the names of the two candidates but said the information is still privy to the party.
Amuriat says that the party will announce the candidate before the end of next week.
According to Amuriat, the party’s working committee which he chairs will sit on Friday this week to choose one name to be forwarded to the National Executive Committee (NEC) for approval.
