Forum for Democratic Change Spokesperson, Wafula Ogutu, is the new leader of the opposition in parliament.
Mr Oguttu first hesitated to take up the position when he was nominated by Gen Muntu. He however accepted the position after party devotees Augustine Ruzindana, Muniini Mulera and Mr Mafabi pleaded with him to take up the position.
“He (Wafula) is capable, committed and has a corporate background and I believe his management capabilities will be able to work in Parliament.” Muntu said after appointing him.
Wafula attended Bukedi College, Kachonga, and Teso College Aloet before joining Beijing University in 1977 from where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Literature and Political Economy.
He has served as FDC publicist from 2005 when the party was formed.
In 2011, he won the Bukhooli County Central MP race.
