Top Members belonging to Forum for Democratic Change, the strongest opposition in Uganda are in deep tears after unknown people broke into their head offices based at Najjanakumbi along Entebbe Road and stole their computers, important documents including ICC documents.
The break-in was confirmed by the party’s deputy spokesperson, John Kikonyogo, who promised to provide further details later today. “It is true, computers were stolen and other items,” Kikonyogo said
According to insiders in FDC, the goons could have broken into the office at around 2:00am when most of the people who operate bars around have gone.
“What I know by mid-night or 1:00am you can not break into FDC offices because all bars around are still open and they are good friends to us so they can not allow anybody to access our premises,” says a top official from FDC.
Another insider adds that more than five computers holding sensitive party documents were taken and other files with our secrets are still missing.
“The file containing names of FDC members and their contacts country wide is among the missing files,” another Top FDC Member told us.
The source adds that computers that were stolen belonged to the office of Secretary General headed by Budadiri West Member of Parliament Hon.Nandala Mafabi and Electro Commission Boss.
Brenda Atuzarirwe, an officer in the party’s Electoral Commission was the first to enter the premises this morning. She says she found the door open and noticed that computers were missing.
“I reached at the office at 8.30am only to find the door wide open yet I am the only one with the keys. When I checked inside, the wires from the computers were all broken and some computers had been taken. I then informed my bosses who also informed police about the incident,”Atuzarirwe said.
Efforts to get an official comment from Police was futile as Public relations Department was attending police Council but the low ranking officers who visited the scene and are not allowed to give official comment said some few people have recorded their statements including security guards who were on duty at night.
