KAMPALA-Members of the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) party led by former army commander, Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu Tuesday held a meeting at Nsambya Sharing Hall to discuss the party’s constitution and the interim leadership scheduled to be unveiled tomorrow during the party launch at Serena Hotel.

Gen Muntu told delegates drawn from different parts of the country that the party will concentrate on building structures around the country in the next one year.

He said they will “dig deep” to have candidates at every parish across the country.

“When you are building a skyscraper, you must build a strong foundation. Please go out there, explain to people what we stand for and let’s brand ourselves,” he said.

Gen Muntu said his party has good working relations will all Opposition political parties including the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), which he once led and later quit, over “disagreement on strategy”.

“So far, we have not been drawn into any fights with the fellow Opposition parties. We have good working relations with the People Power, Democratic Party (DP), Justice Forum [JEEMA] and as far as I know, we have no problem with our FDC colleagues. They are our colleagues, not our enemies. We only have difference in strategy,” he said.

Gen Muntu said some FDC members say he left the party because of “ill intentions but they will understand us with time”.

Ms Alice Alaso, the convener of the meeting, who is a former FDC secretary general told the meeting that they will carry out an extensive leadership training programme for their party members in the next one year.
