End of Defiance: Winnie Kiiza appointed Leader of Opposition

FDC Management has finally solved the dilemma and appointed the Leader of Opposition in Parliament. This was after 3 unsuccessful meetings as to whether appoint the Leader of opposition or remain defiant.The Kasese Woman MP has finally been appointed the Leader of Opposition in the 10th Parliament.

The wife to the former Presidential Candidate Kiiza Besigye, Mrs Winnie Byanyima who saw leadership skills in Winnie Kiiza, recently endorsed Winnie Kiiza and the appointing management has made Winnie Kiiza the new LOP.

Appointing the Leader of Opposition means FDC has accepted the defeat that they lost in the previous election and it is one way of conceding a loss. Wafula Oguttu who never wanted the LOP appointed said that FDC had won the elections and they therefore need not to appoint the Leader of Opposition.
