New FDC reshuffles unconstitutional – Winnie Kiiza

there is need to face the reality and avoid portraying the party as a cohort of comedians-Kiiza

Former leader of opposition, Winnie Kiiza, has criticized the previous reshuffles made by the FDC president, Patrick Oboi Amuriat saying that they are unconstitutional.Addressing journalists at Parliament on Monday,Kiiza cautioned her party leadership over making such legal decisions outside the constitutional terms and conditions.

She added that appointing “minority leaders would be foolish since there is no such position in the Constitution and the Parliamentary rules of procedure.”

“When we begin to break the rules of the game, abrogating the constitution even before we get into power, then there is a lot to be desired,” she said.

Kiiza warned FDC against repeating similar mistake like in 2016  the appointed leader of minority was rejected by parliament  until the then Party president Maj Gen (rtd) Mugisha Muntu authored another letter appointing leaders of opposition in Parliament.

Although she claims she is not against the changes, and that its normal and healthy to change, former leader asserts that she is concerned about the manner in which the changes were being rushed especially when the current tenure of office is expected to elapse in December.

“As of now I wouldn’t want to go into the details of what we want to do, what we intended to do, because am equally speculating like other Ugandans; am only hearing about changes. I am not yet informed about them and I cannot therefore substantively comment about these changes,” she said.

 Amuriat, on friday, replaced Ms Kiiza with Gulu Woman MP,  Betty Aol Ochan while former was out of the country where she had led a group of MPs for a trip to California.

According to Sources at Najjanankumbi,  Ms Winnie Kiiza had been dropped because of her persistent failure to attend meetings at the party headquarters.
