MUGISHA MUNTU: Fellow Ugandans,
Today, The Alliance for National Transformation had the honour of welcoming into its fold, Hon. Winnie Kiiza the former Leader of Opposition and current Kasese Woman MP.
Hon. Kiiza needs no introduction. A trailblazer in so many respects, she has proven herself a leader of integrity, passionate about serving those she represents and a uniting figure.
In 2016, Hon. Kiiza confided in only a handful of elders that she would not be seeking re-election. After serving with distinction as the Leader of Opposition, she could have stood for any position in Kasese and won without the public ever getting to know of her pledge. In fact, most people wanted her to keep her sit.
Instead, knowing that her word is her bond, she did as she had promised, kept her word and announced she would not be seeking re-election.
In a country where political leaders break their promises for personal gain, Hon. Kiiza stands out a beaming example of what it means to put #CountryBeforeSelf. In word and deed, she exemplifies everything our party stands for: value-based politics.
We are honoured to count her among our number and would like to thank her for choosing to make The Alliance her home, even as she continues working with all changing-seeking forces to build the Uganda we want.
Welcome Home Hon. Kiiza.
Gen. Mugisha Muntu (ANT, Presidential Flag Bearer)
