Arua Municipality MP Kassiano Wadri has joined the Alliance for National Transformation.
He joins a list of former FDC cadres such as Paul Mwiru, to join former party president Gen. Mugisha Muntu’s purple camp leaving big questions at Najjanankumbi.
Kassiano, however, is not crossing directly from FDC, as he represents Arua Municipality in Parliament on an independent ticket after being helped by Kyagulanyi to win the by-elections. This is after the seat fell vacant when Ibrahim Abiriga of the National Resistance Movement was assassinated in June 2018.
Wadri previously represented Terego County, Arua District in the 7th Parliament (2001 – 2006), 8th Parliament (2006 – 2011) and 9th Parliament (2011 – 2016), as a member of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change political party. During those tours of duty, Wadri served as the opposition chief whip, the chairperson of the Committee on Government Assurances and as a member of the Committee on Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries and of the Business Committee
