Speaker Anita Among Congratulates Joel Ssenyonyi On New LOP Job

The Speaker of Parliament Hon Anita Among has congratulated the new leader of opposition (LOP), Hon Joel Ssenyonyi on his new job.

Apparently the National Unity Platform (NUP) president, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine appointed the Nakawa west MP to the job.

Hon Ssenyonyi who is also the party’s spokesperson replaces Nyendo – Mukungwe MP, Mathias Mpuuga. Hon Mpuuga has held the role since May 2021 and has been at the forefront of different clashes with the government.

However, he’s faced a few highs and lows during this job. Some of the lows were from some NUP supporters who didn’t like his diplomatic approach to politics.

Rumors had always been circulating that Bobi Wine wanted to drop him. But while speaking about this new reshuffle, Bobi Wine said that this appointment doesn’t mean Mpuuga has been fired or demoted.

It’s because NUP has a lot of senior leaders. They, therefore, want to use this opportunity to nurture and groom leaders. Besides, it’s also a moral appointment.

Additionally Mpuuga expressed his appreciation to NUP for the time he’s been office. On the other hand, Ssenyonyi expressed gratitude to the former DP MP who has agreed to keep guiding on different issues in regards to this role.

Furthermore, the Speaker of Parliament went ahead to congratulate Ssenyonyi and also wish Mpuuga well in his next posting. Among who hasn’t had a good time with the opposition said that she looks forward to an amicable relationship with the new LOP.

“I congratulate the Hon. @JoelSsenyonyi, Leader of the Opposition in Parliament – designate, on your appointment. I look forward to working with you, and may you achieve remarkable success during your tenure. And I also congratulate the Rt. Hon @MathiasMpuuga for his distinguished service, and wish him well in his new posting.” she tweeted.
