Rubaga South MP Kato Lubwama says he is trying his best to enjoy life although the state security apparatus is taking the country back to the days of terror regimes.
“I am enjoying life. And the people who sent me to enjoy life say I don’t touch the constitution,” Lubwama told press at parliament when asked for his view on the lifting of the presidential age limit debate.
Lubwama said he, however, fears the chaos and anarchy which the NRM people are trying to create.
“We are putting the constitution into play because we swore to defend it.”
As for the mass deployment around Kampala and military siege of parliament, Lubwama says he grew up in Kampala since the governments of Idi Amin and Milton Obote.
“We are used; this is just a temporary thing. It will go,” he said, adding, “there is a lot of tension in town with military men everywhere; we are going back to those days of Obote.”
Hon. Lubwama said the people who sent him to “have happiness” are saying go tell them [NRM MPs] not to touch the constitution.
“I don’t have my views but views of my people which are don’t tamper with the constitution of Uganda.”
Speaking earlier, Kampala Central MP Hon. Muhammad Nsereko said there was no presence of police at his home unlike other opposition leaders whose homes were besieged.
“If they were planning to come, sorry!” Nsereko, who was supposed to report to the CID on offensive communication charges, said.
“We have sent our lawyers to inform them that we are not coming. Well, my colleagues will be here shortly and it’s not only us, we are trying to talk to other MPs to lobby them.”
On opposition MPs handling NRM MPs who proposed the lifting of the age limit, Nsereko said: “We may be small in number but we are firm. We are ready for the day. We shall use all legal means.”
He added: “We are not going to use violence in Parliament. We don’t condone violence but we are not going allow arrogance of numbers.”
