Eight FDC top leaders met for six hours in a closed-door meeting at the Inter Party Coalition offices on Katonga Road to discuss a programme that will be followed by Maj. Gen. Muntu as he conducts party business effective this January.
FDC presidential secretary Christopher Kibanzanga said the meeting was also intended to create an agenda for the party for the next three years.

He added: “In this meeting, we are going to review the programme that will be followed by the president in meeting all party leaders right from the top leaders to the youth.”
According to the programme that was seen by this newspaper, Gen. Muntu will meet different party leaders until February 7 in different locations.
Mr Francis Mwijukye, a member of the FDC publicity committee, said the meetings are also intended to ensure that all party leaders and members are “on the same page” for the next three years.
