Human Rights Body Takes Magyezi To Court For Forcing Age Limit On People

Advocates for Human Rights, Peace and Development (AHUPE) has dragged Igara West MP Raphael Magyezi, Attorney General and the government chief legal adviser, to court for threatening the rights of Ugandans.

Magyezi is the chief mover of a bill seeking to amend Article 102 (b) from the Constitution so President Yoweri Museveni can rule for life.

AHUPE that dragged Magyezi to Constitutional Court is an organisation set up to foster constitutionalism and peace.

AHUPE contends that Magyezi’s Bill has led to the rights of citizens to be threatened and that the same motion is irregular and unconstitutional.

The organisation says the bill will result in instability and destruction of the constitutional order in the country.

To them, Magyezi is a single individual who should not decide for majority Ugandans.

According to the petitioners, Magyezi did not observe Article 94 (1) c as it is mandatory to seek assistance from relevant government departments whose area of operation the private Bill is going to affect.

He should have, therefore, sough assistance from the Justice ministry and the Electoral Commission.

For this matter, the petitioners pray that court finds Magyezi’s bill null and void. They further seek an injunction restraining the MP from amending the constitution
