KASESE- The incumbent Kasese District and the former Leader of Opposition Winnie Kiiza has announced that she will not contest in the forthcoming general elections.

In an interview with this online publication at her office in Kasese District today, Kiiza says she will remain active with the forces of change but will not offer herself for political positions.

She says her intention was to lead by example by giving others a chance to serve Ugandans. Kiiza has held the Kasese district parliamentary seat for three successive terms.

She said she was looking forward to supporting the person that would replace her.

“However, I’m not giving up on the fight to continue looking for the desired change and participation in national politics,” she said.

Kiiza said come May 2021 after handing over, she will be starting off her new journey outside elective politics.

Currently, the former LoP is at the forefront of collecting relief for the displaced people of Kasese and many people thought that apart from playing her role she was preparing for campaigns.

Winnie Kiiza served as the leader of Opposition in Ugandan Parliament from May 2016 until August 2018 when she was replaced by Hon Betty Aol Achan.
