My Doctor Will Tell Whether am Capable To Rule Beyond 75 years Or Not Says Museveni

Uganda’s three-decade president Yoweri Museveni has said medical personnel will tell whether he has fitness to rule the east African landlocked impoverished nation beyond 75 years.

Born in 1944 and in power since 1986, Museveni will be over 75 in 2021 when Uganda next goes to the polls.

But with the constitution’s article 102b’s upper age limit barring anyone from running for president, our president will be ineligible for reelection.

In an interview with NTV a few years ago, Museveni said there was some medical sense in the age limit, adding that he would ‘certainly not stand’ for reelection when he turns 75.

The president  has now told the press at State House Entebbe that the medics would decide on his fitness to lead.

“You go and get a medical report about the fitness of somebody post 75, whether they are medically fit to lead,” Museveni told the press Wednesday evening.

The president  said that all the procedures of amending the age limit were in the constitution, eluding the question of whether he would accept to run again if the age limit clause was deleted.

Museveni’s ruling NRM party MPs led by Igara West’s Raphael Magyezi on Tuesday resolved to seek leave of parliament to introduce a private members bill aimed at deleting the age limit to allow Museveni rule for life.
