A former 2-time contender in the Rubanda East NRM parliamentary Primaries has been appointed to serve in the Office of the Leader of Opposition Hon Betty Aol Achan.
Dr Joseph Tindyebwa has been appointed as the new Principal Policy Analyst for the Leader of Opposition in parliament.
Having lost twice in the NRM primaries, Tindyebwa joined the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in 2012 and has been serving as the party’s National Deputy Secretary General for Policy and Research.
Dr Tindyebwa while announcing the news, described his new job as tasking but expressed confidence that he will perform well due to his vast experience and knowledge in public office.
“Since 2004 when I joined civil service at 27years, I was belittled that I was a very young sub-county chief. But by 2010 when I was seeking resignation to join active politics I was ranked as a second best preforming senior Assistant Secretary,” he said.
“All along it has been my ambition to work for the parliament of Uganda. This appointment motivates me to contribute my best to the legislative arm of government”
Tindyebwa however, says there is no need for him to resign his current post in FDC since his term of office as Deputy Secretary General Research and policy is to end in June 2020.
Dr Tindyebwa has previously served in Kabale as Sub-County Chief, Senior Assistant Secretary and later as Assistant Chief Administrative Officer.
He boasts of vast experience in research and has lectured at various universities including Kabale University , Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology Kigali campus Rwanda, Independent University of Rwanda, University of Kigali , Kampala International University and Bishop Barham University College, Uganda Christian University Kabale.
