Born in 1944, Museveni will not be eligible for reelection unless article 102b of Uganda’s constitution is removed. The article bars anyone below age 35 and over 75 to stand for president.

By 2021, The president, who has been in power since 1986, will be just over 76.

But some members of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party led by Museveni advisor David Mafabi on Tuesday resolved to start popularizing a move to remove the age limit.

But Museveni said he had no time for discussion of a proposal that did not exist.

“Those debating age limit, what are you debating? Who has brought that proposal?” Museveni said at State House Entebbe during a press briefing for Uganda’s Giants Club Conservation and Tourism Investment Forum.

“Don’t waste your time with people who don’t have what to do,” he added.

He said he was now busy with work and had no time to respond to the rumoured proposal.

“I have heard them but I am busy with my work.”

The President also said there was no planned referendum on the age limit.

“One says are you going to handle it by referendum? That is speculation. I don’t deal with speculation.”

On Tuesday, Museveni advisor David Mafabi met a team of NRM leaders who agreed to popularise the age limit removal and Museveni’s 2021 reelection campaign.

On this, the president said: “Mafabi, if he made a statement it must be because of the provocations by the indisciplined group.”

Uganda will host the Giants Club Conservation and Tourism Investment Forum in October. The Forum will bring Uganda’s government together with international hotel and lodge developers, tourism businesses, high-net-worth individuals, institutional donors, and conservationists.
