Chuka Umunna

MP

Chuka Umunna was born in London in 1978 and his father tragically died in a car accident in Nigeria when Umunna was 14 years old. He attended St Dunstan's College in Catford and went on to study English and French Law at the University of Manchester. After continuing his studies at Nottingham Law School he began working as a solicitor. In 2008 he became the Labour Party's prospective parliamentary candidate for Streatham, and was elected as MP in 2010. The protégé of Peter Mandelson, Umunna is now the shadow business secretary and a bright hope of the new Labour tendency. Always impeccably groomed, he exudes an air of effortless success.
