During the NRM caucus meeting on Friday October 13, president Museveni reportedly threw his weight behind the presidential age limit bill and is said to have explained to the MPs why needs more time.
According to The Observer, the president reportedly said he has a “mission to accomplish” and this is why he wants parliament to scrap age limits in the constitution for elderly presidential candidates like him.
“He told us that his revolutionary struggle is not a mere struggle but a mission that has to be accomplished and therefore cannot be locked out by mere technicalities,” an MP who attended one of the State House meetings told The Observer.
“He told us to think about the future of Africa; he said we should look at Africa’s strategic thinkers who shouldn’t be locked out because of mere technicalities,” Government Chief Whip Ruth Nankabirwa told journalists after the caucus meeting.
According to the Observer, Museveni reportedly wants the bill passed by the end of November and does lot of time in the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee.
