Obongi County Member of Parliament in Moyo district, Hassan Kaps Fungaroo, says he is the right person for the position of Leader of Opposition in the 10th parliament.
Hon Wafula Oguttu who Kaps describes as “a diplomat not brave enough for the job” currently occupies the position.
Addressing press in Arua town on Wednesday, Kaps said the opposition has been losing the liberation fight to the ruling NRM party because of soft leaders of opposition.
He argued that since the Forum for Democratic Change doesn’t have a representative from West Nile region in the composition of the National Executive Council (NEC), this would provide the opportunity.
Having worked as Shadow Defense Minister, Fungaroo says once appointed leader of opposition, he will mobilise members of the parliament to petition parliament to dissatisfaction in the management of national affairs by the legislators.
Says state is after his life
He also claims the state is after his life.
“The state has been conspiring with a family in my constituency to accuse me of defilement,” he told journalists.
He said the girl the state tried to use in the conspiracy declined.
According to Kaps, the state may now harm the girl and her mother.
He said the Moyo Resident District Commissioner, Collins Obed, Koboko district police commander Patrick Isamat and the 409 brigade commander are behind the plot.
The officials denied the allegations.
Back in 2009, then Arua RDC Ibrahim Abiriga allegedly tried to smear Kaps with treason accusations but failed to prove them.
