KAMPALA — The National Transformation Alliance (ANT) has on Wednesday welcomed and unveiled former internal affairs Minister Sarah Kiyingi and KCCA spokesperson Aisha Nabasirye.
Kiyingi is a former state minister for internal affairs and Woman MP Rakai District.
In 2005, as a minister, she is remembered for vehemently opposing the lifting of term limits.
She subsequently lost her position in cabinet. ANT national coordinator Gen Mugisha Muntu said this earned her the good name and trust of the people.
Kiyingi led a petition against the dishing out of UGX 20M to MPs.
Additionally, Nabasirye was previously a member of the NRM and is the current Deputy Speaker of KCCA Makindye Division.
She announced plans to stand for Woman MP Kampala District on ANT ticket.
“When we started the Alliance for National Transformation, we made it clear that our goal was to change the nature of our country’s politics. As a first step towards that, we decided that we must attract the right kind of leadership that will not only walk the talk but also put the country’s interests before their personal ambition.
Good people cannot keep saying politics is dirty and yet be unwilling to join and change it,” Gen. Muntu said.
“Today, we are happy to add among our number, people that have demonstrated their fidelity to truth, justice, equality and democratic principles,” he added.
ANT recently picked Mugisha Muntu as their flag bearer in the presidential race.
The part last week unveiled two more MPs including Paul Mwiru and Gerald Karuhanga.
Mwiru and Karuhanga highlighted the need for an upgrade in some of Uganda’s sectors which have informed their decision to cross the floor.
“I want to inform the country, that I have joined Alliance for national transformation with my own conscious and passion, because there’s a need to transform the health, economic sectors of Uganda, and ensure the respect of human rights” Mwiru said.
