Two members of Parliament (MPs) on Tuesday joined the Opposition Alliance for National Transformation, which is headed by former army commander, Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu.

The two MPs are Mr Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo Municipality) and Mr Paul Mwiru (Jinja East).

Mr Karuhanga joined parliament as an independent while Mr Mwiru was voted to the House on the ticket of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).

Gen Muntu was once the president of FDC.

 While receiving the two MPs, at the party headquarters on Plot 87, Buganda Road in Kampala  Gen Muntu, who was recently picked as the ANT party flag bearer come the 2021 general elections, said that “this is just the beginning” of a long journey ahead.

Gen Muntu said that ANT is a “place for those with deeply rooted values” and are bold enough to speak truth to power.


He also says that he is certain, his party will be elected by Ugandans in order to re-direct the course of Uganda.
