Former Tourism Minister also Mityana North lawmaker in the tenth parliament Hon. Godfrey Kiwanda Ssuubi is all smiles after returning to the NBS Barometer political talk show.
Formerly frustrated having been unceremoniously ejected out of cabinet, Kiwanda had taken a long leave off political commentaries, and was eventually replaced on the NBS Barometer show with microfinance Minister Kyeyune Harunah Kasolo.

Family sources say the genesis of Kiwanda’s frustration stems from the fact that he upon being used to propel the infamous age limit bill got lured away from elective politics and promised a fat slot in the East African Legislative Assembly. To more frustration, the position was instead accorded to Maj. James Kakooza and Kiwanda was left hanging in thin air. The only left consolation was with his retention as a cabinet Minister but still he was axed in favour of NRA veteran Tom Butime.

Kiwanda opted to take a long vacation away from active political commentaries. His close contemporaries assert that his frustration is what compelled him to indirectly attack his own NRM regime when he backed the narrative that the late speaker Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanyah had confided in him that he was poisoned.
Kiwanda wife appointed at parliament
Ms. Veronica Nanonno, a staff at Uganda National Examinations Board-UNEB and Wife to ex Tourism Minister Kiwanda Ssuubi was amongst the 49 new recruits by parliament in a decree made by the custodian of the house who is the Rt. Hon. Speaker Anita Among.
This they say is what inspired his return to Television talk show to proceed with trying to mobilize for the NRM regime.
