President cannot solve health sector problems by firing health workers


Kasese district Moman MP Winnie Kiiza has been approved as the new Leader of the Opposition in Parliament.
The National Executive Committee of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change party also approved Kira municipality MP, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, and Dokolo Woman MP, Cecilia Ogwal, as party chief whip and commissioner respectively.
Winnie Kiiza who is the country’s first female opposition leader in parliament, first came to Parliament after the 2001 general elections as a woman legislator for Kasese district.
Kiiza has a huge task ahead go of her as she will try to marshall the opposition against an overwhelming NRM majority of 302 MPs compared to FDC’s 36, 59 Independents, 15 DP and 6 UPC MPs.
The new appointments have not come easy. A section of party youths opposed to the appointments stormed the FDC headquarters in protest.
