Former Leader of the Opposition Hon. Winnie Kiiza has praised the Parliament for being an institution that promotes democracy, good governance and is accessible to ordinary people.

Kiiza made the remarks while receiving an award for his service from the Deputy Secretary of Parliament, Henry Waiswa, on Friday, January 14, 2022.

Kiiza said it was an honor to be recognized by an institution she served for 15 years, adding, “I am honored that the works and activities of those in opposition can be recognized.”

The former LOP said that the institution of Parliament had been instrumental in promoting good governance by providing the Office of the Leader of the Opposition and supporting its activities. He added that all the efforts devoted to offering a platform to the opposition was a sign of a growing democracy in the country.

Kiiza thanked the Secretary of Parliament and all the staff for all their dedication towards her while she was serving as Leader of the Opposition. “I enjoyed working with everyone and continue to cherish the times I had while serving the institution and the country as a whole,” he added.

Waiswa said the award was Parliament’s token of appreciation to Kiiza for his exceptional service.

Kiiza served as the Kasese District MP under the FDC party from 2006 to 2021. In 2016, she was appointed as the first female opposition leader in Uganda.
