OUTGOING LEADER OF OPPOSITION REACTS TO HER SACKING
The outgoing Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Winfred Kiiza has dismissed claims that she was sacked because she was not in sync with the current FDC Party leadership.
Her statement comes after the FDC President Patrick Amuriat on Friday announced Gulu Woman MP Betty Aol Ochan as the new Leader of Opposition in Parliament.
Kiiza who was addressing a press conference on Monday at her boardroom in Parliament, said Amuriat should not be lamenting that she has been unreachable and unapproachable.
Kiiza told the journalists that she has not yet received official communication from the party and she is only relying on media reports.
She said she has been obedient and in good books with the party, engaging actively in campaigns with top party leaders.
According to Kiiza, she has been meeting FDC leaders, and wonders why she has been accused of not working with the party.

Cue out:…out to me"//
Kiiza also noted that the party announced Betty Aol Ochan as the Minority leader and not opposition leader, and this should be addressed. She cited previous appointments when the same error was made and Parliament asked the party to rectify it. She also says the changes come at a time when the term of the current leaders has not ended.
According to Kiiza, standing committee chairpersons are supposed to serve for two and a half years, ending in December this year, but the reshuffle was announced prematurely.
