Munyagwa eats big in Opposition cabinet reshuffle as Katuntu dropped

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has reshuffled the leadership of the opposition in parliament.

Several Pro-Muntu members of parliament who were appointed during his reign as Party president were left out in the new reshuffle as new Party President Patrick Amoriat Oboi seeks to stamp his authority in parliament.

Notable among those dropped includes; Leader of opposition in parliament Winnie Kiiza, COCASE chairperson Abdu Katuntu among others.
Below is the new list of opposition leadership in parliament

The Leader of Opposition in Parliament – Hon Betty Aol Ochan Gulu woman representative.
Opposition Chief Whip- Hon Semujju Nganda who represent Kiira Municipality.
Deputy opposition Chief Whip- Hon Tonny Muhindo
Commissioner – Hon. Mwijukye Francis.

COSASE Chairperson – Hon. Munyagwa Mubarak.
Deputy COSASE Chairperson – Hon. Kasibante Moses.

Deputy Chairperson Public Assurance Committee – Hon. Michael Kabaziguruka.

Political analyst believes that the new changes will create more divisions within the party that have not yet recovered from an election that saw former Party president General Mugisha Muntu lose to Patrick Amoriat Oboi.

Muntu since losing the election has been traversing the country consulting with different stakeholders on the way forward.

Many of the MPs who supported Muntu presidential bid were dropped.
