Sylvia Owori says to challenge MP Opendi in 2026

Sylvia Owori

Former fashionista Sylvia Owori has declared that she will be contesting for Tororo District Woman Member of Parliament, according to a post on her social media platforms.

What prompted the former Miss Uganda franchise holder was an altercation with the incumbent Tororo Woman MP Sarah Opendi over land disputes.

In a post on X on Thursday, Owori tagged Opendi, saying: “@SarahOpendi, I will be standing as Woman MP of Tororo. Let the best woman win.”

In a series of tweets, Owori claims Opendi is spreading misinformation about her with “baseless accusations and name-calling.”

“WHAT A SHAME! It’s very disappointing to see MP Sarah Opendi continuously spreading hate and misinformation against me on the floor of parliament instead of focusing on issues that matter to all Ugandans right now. MP Sarah Opendi is fixated on baseless accusations and name-calling just because of her perceived threat of me standing against her as Woman MP of Tororo. It’s unprofessional & unworthy of a parliamentarian.”

A 2023 story by the Independent revealed how Sylvia Owori is involved in land disputes with more than 15 families in Tororo municipality.

“The families accuse Owori of using her security connections in her attempt to displace them from their homes,” reads part of the article.

Sylvia Owori is a director of the Operation Wealth Creation led by Gen Salim Saleh.
