Mulindwa Walid Lubega, the FDC National Youth League Chairman, said the late Angoliga is a founder Member of FDC Party and former FDC Parliamentary candidate for Aringa County South Constituency.

“We shall always miss his wise counsel especially in security matters. He has indeed been one of the building block of FDC and as well as the struggle for change.”

“It’s unfortunate that he has passed on without witnessing the change he so much worked for. It will be the task of us who are still living to actualise what our elder Mr. Angoliga stood for.”
