“I have not received any official communication to that effect so I here working as the LoP. When the communication comes, I’ll vacate,” Kiiza told journalists at Parliament this afternoon.
Kasese Youth give FDC ultimatum
In related developments, youth from Kasese district have given FDC five days to explain the sacking of their MP from the role.
Gideon Ntabosi, the Kasese district vice chairperson who also doubles as FDC youth chairperson in Kasese said the manner in which Winnie Kiiza was dropped is “so unfortunate and they need answers.”
The angry youth threatened to demonstrate if the FDC party fails to give clear reasons for the reshuffle.
Kiiza was dropped alongside Bugweri MP, Abdu Katuntu among others in a move critics say is a purge of those that supported former party president Gen. Mugisha Muntu.
