After close to two months since losing his post as Vice President, Prof. Gilbert Bukenya yesterday made his maiden appearance in a parliamentary committee as a back-bencher.
Dressed in a dark blue suit, the bespectacled Busiro North legislator sat close to the Agriculture Committee Deputy Chairperson, Egunyu Nantume (Buvuma Woman MP). He looked calm, as he watched MPs deliberate on budget queries to be put to the Ministry of Agriculture on Thursday when the Minister and his technocrats appear for budget allocations.
The former VP fighting for his Busiro North Constituency, occasionally made contributions, and banged the table, a sign of support and appreciation of colleagues' submissions. Prof. Bukenya is also a member of the Committee on HIV/Aids.
