The National Executive Committee of the Democratic Party has with immediate effect suspended the National Organizing Secretary Sulaiman Kidandala from his position for flouting its directives and appointed the Deputy National Organizing Secretary Mr. Shafic Dembe to perform the functions of the office of the National Organizing Secretary.
The party NEC sitting at the new party headquarters at Balintuma Road Nankulabye Kampala on Friday 14th February accuses Kidandala for defying against the party resolutions in which he unilaterally suspended the registration process of the party membership and a launched his own parallel process based on unauthorized forms.
The National Executive Committee Resolution moved by Mr. Dick Lukyamuzi Ssenyondo the greater Masaka NEC representative and seconded by Ms. Rita Nakyanzi and Mr. Christopher Okidi reads;

WHEREAS the party approved a Road Map whose goal is to compile a National Members Register and to elect party leaders at all levels under the oversight of the NEC;
NOTING that the process of membership registration and election of branch and sub-branch leaders has been subverted leading to confusion among members;
NOTING that the National Organizing Secretary Mr. Sulaiman Kidandala in defiance of the NEC resolution unilaterally suspended the registration process and launched a parallel process based on unauthorized forms;
NOW THEREFORE be it resolved by the NEC that:
1. To ensure compliance with NEC directives, the said National Organizing Secretary, Mr. Sulaiman Kidandala, who has with impunity flouted NEC directives, is hereby suspended from office with immediate effect.
2. The Deputy National Organizing Secretary Mr. Shafic Dembe is hereby delegated to perform the functions of the office of the National Organizing Secretary.

4. For the avoidance of doubt, the leaders of the branch and sub-branch are directed to adhere to the NEC directive and use the white registration and return forms that bear the party seal. Furthermore, all registers and return forms shall be delivered to the party headquarters through the office of the Secretary General.
however some NEC members stormed out of the meeting accusing Mao and his group of being dictators because they didnt give Kidandala chance to defend himself.
