Former commissioner of parliament and Dokolo woman member of parliament hon Cecilia Ogwal has said she is not bothered by the recent party reshuffle of opposition cabinet in parliament which saw her and several others lose their positions as parliamentary leaders.
FDC party president Eng Patrick Amoriat Oboi announced the reshuffle last week on Friday.
In the reshuffle several party members who do not agree with the leadership of Amoriat pledging their allegiance to former party president General Mugisha Muntu were dropped.
Ogwal who was replaced by Buhweju county member of parliament Francis Mwijukye says her primary focus is provision of services to the people of Uganda but not parliamentary leadership.
She added that she has been serving the party even before being appointed as commissioner assuring the country that she is comfortable returning to parliament as a back bencher.
Her statement is in sharp contrast with her colleagues in parliament who expressed disappointment in party leadership for dropping them.
Bugweri county member of parliament Abdu Katuntu said the reshuffle was a purge on those who don’t agree with Amoriat leadership.
Winnie Kiiza who was dropped as a leader of opposition in parliament also expressed disappointment saying she will inform the country on her next course of action after receiving official communication from the party leadership regarding her sacking.
Aruu County member of parliament Odonga Otto said he would quit the party in 2021 saying reshuffle was done in part faith.

FDC leaders in Kasese have also condemned the reshuffle giving party five days ultimatum to explain to them why their daughter Winnie Kiiza was dropped.
