Removing of the age limit bill from the constitution meant that president Museveni who’s going to be beyond the age of 75 in the next general election can stand for presidency.

NRM were on the (25th February 2018) celebrating the age limit law that was passed last year in 2017.

The celebration event was organized by Ruth Nankabirwa the Chief Whip in the Ugandan Cabinet.

Ruth said that the reason as to why she had organized this party was to diminish the allegations that after passing the amendment, the NRM MP’s were hiding in Kampala fearing to go to their constituencies.

Still on NRM , the ruling party launched a campaign dubbed “ Align and Arrive” that is aimed at increasing the presidential term and all elective positions from 5 years to 7 years.
