Hon. kiiza needs no introduction, a trailblazer in so many respects, she has proven herself a leader of integrity passionate about serving those she represents and a uniting figure. In 2016 , kiiza confided in only a handful of elders that she would not be seeking re- election. After serving with distinction as the leader of opposition, she could have stood for any potion in kasese and won with out the public getting to know of her pledge, in fact most wanted her to keep her seat

Instead knowing that her word is her bond, she did as she had promised, kept her and announced she would not be seeking re- election

In a counrty where political leaders break their promises for political gain, Hon. kiiza stands out as beaming example of what it means to put #CountryBeforeSelf . In word and deed she exemplifies everything our party stands or : value- based politics

we are honored to count her among our number and would like to thank her for choosing to make The Alliance her home, even as she continues working with all change seeking forces to build the Uganda we want, Welcome Home Hon. kiiza” Gen. Mugisha Muntu wrote on his page.

Winnie Kiiza was welcomed with chanting and ululation as she joined recent recruits, Paul Mwiru (Jinja East) and Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo).

“When we talk about Winnie Kiiza, we are talking about a woman of integrity, a very firm and assertive personality. We are happy to receive home as an institution builder. Winnie Kiiza’s coming home means a lot for this party and this country,” Alaso said.

Speaking at the same event Winnie Kiiza said, “today I have taken a decision to become an active member of the ANT.”

“A month ago I announced to the nation that I was not seeking reelection for the woman MP seat and people started wondering what next. I said I will continue to pursue justice, change, good values, good governance and all those will be pursued but with the ANT as my home,” she added.

Kiiza thanked the FDC for working with her and said she doesn’t regret working with the opposition party.

“I don’t think they also regret working with me, but I come here because I believe in the values that the ANT espouses. I want t to be part of those who will out building blocks for this political party to create hope for the majority of Ugandans who have seemingly lost hope. I thank ANT for creating a home that gives us hope,” Kiiza said.

She said fellow legislators Paul Mwiru and Kassiano Wadri paved way for her joining ANT.

According to internal party sources, Kiiza is tipped to become the new party chairperson, replacing Mugisha Muntu who will be holding the flag for the party in the presidential elections.
