KAMPALA – Presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobiwine has commended Kasese Woman MP Winnie Kiiza for taking a bold decision of retiring from elective politics.
Kiiza on July 14 revealed that she will not participate anymore in elective politics but will remain active with the forces of change.

“I celebrate you. The forces of change celebrate you. The nation celebrates you. History will remember you for taking such a bold and courageous decision. I have personally always been inspired by you, but this noble decision makes me admire you even more,” he said.
He added that, “You have challenged all of us leaders, both in government and the opposition. God bless you.”
ANT’s Mugisha Muntu also said Kiiza represents the very best of political leadership.
“She has served not just her constituents but all Ugandans with dedication and integrity. Over and over again, I have seen her put country before self in both word and deed,” he said in a statement.
Muntu prides in appointing Kiiza as Leader of Opposition adding that it was one of his best and easiest decisions.
“Kiiza presided over one of the most inclusive and competent shadow governments we have had,” said Muntu.
He added that, “On behalf of The Alliance for National Transformation, I take this opportunity to thank you Hon. Kiiza for your service to country and for showing us all what happens when we put our oath to serve before our personal ambitions for gain. Whatever your next chapter is we wish you all the very best.
We are in no doubt that you will continue to excel.”
