The National Executive Committee of Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA) is expected to convene on Thursday to decide on the fate of party president, Beti Olive Kamya.
ChimpReports has seen a copy of communication sent to all CEC members of UFA, including Kamya who is currently serving as minister in the National Resistance Movement government without known coalition arrangement.
When contacted the UFA Acting Secretary General, Oluma Kennedy confirmed the development saying the party has been in limbo for long concerning the position their president is holding in government.
“Tomorrow we shall have our NEC meeting at Mamerito Hotel in Kampala to discuss and resolve the party leadership crisis following the appointment of the party president as a minister for Kampala in the current government led by the National Resistance Movement,” said Oluma.
According to sources in the party, tomorrow’s CEC will be followed by the National Delegates Conference meant to force Kamya to step down or her position be declared vacant.
“The party president lost both the practical and strategic leadership of the party when she accepted the ministerial position and didn’t mind to formalize the dealings with Museveni and NRM,” said a source.
“There are now 3 options for Honorable Kamya. She should either honorably step down, wait for members to demand for her resignation or her seat be declared vacant,” added the source.
The Secretary General confirmed the above allegations in a message to ChimpReports.
“We have held high level internal consultations and concluded that the party president is in untenable position and is heavily conflicted and so can no longer steer the party to pursue its desired objective of effecting change in Uganda,” said Oluma.
