After his famous crossing, Alex Latim took the mantle and martialed the Opposition through. The two former political buddies suddenly became fierce rivals.

However, on Tuesday December 2 2014 , their families were making merry together with Dr. Paul Ssemogerere who was also a DP leader and the current LOP Hon. Wafula Oguttu. They hugged, shared jokes and laughed while the other guests looked on.

It was an opportunity especially for Members of Parliament at the function to mix and mingle with the veteran politician Ssemogerere. They reflected on old memories and took photographs. Talking to MPs, Mr. Sewanyana Henry, himself a veteran former MP who had come along with Dr. Ssemogerere said “What a joyful moment that I can have the opportunity to meet with you. This is amazing.”

The peak of the moment came at the admission of the former and current LoPs to the Wall of Fame of Parliament. Starting with the pre-independence LoP, Dr. Apollo Milton Obote, it was beautiful to see one portrait after another (of the former leaders) being unveiled, handed to the Clerk to Parliament, (represented by Mr. Okello Obabaru, the acting Deputy Clerk Corporate Affairs) who then hang it up on to the wall. The jubilant celebrants sang party songs of the respective LoP whose portrait was being raised up.

This  was the first ceremony of its kind where portraits of any former leaders of this country had been done ceremonially at Parliament. The ceremony gave the mark of dignified respect to the leaders.

Latim took over from 1964-71. Dr. Ssemogerere came in during the post Amin dictatorship from 1980-85; Professor Latigo then arrived in 2006 till 2011, before Hon.
