FDC president Rtd Major Gen Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from entering with other party bosses though he is still negotiating with Uganda Police officials.

Prior to the Kasangati meet, FDC top leadership met to discuss the party’s electoral petition against the conduct and result of the 2016 presidential elections in which the party was represented by Dr Kizza Besigye.

The party heads say they intend to file their petition by 5pm today.
