Buganda Kingdom has sounded a very strong warning to government in regard to the ongoing Age limit circus in the country.
In a well detailed statement issued by the Prime Minister Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga, highlights that the matters of Constitutional amendment affect the entire Buganda and Uganda at large therefore deserve to be handled with care and respect of people’s opinions.
Katikkiro adds that the incident of torturing, threatening and beating people like it was in Parliament recently should not happen again since every Ugandan whether in support or against the govern has a right to give his opinion.
“Every Ugandan whether they support or oppose the government have a constitution and legal right to express their views without being hindered, intimidated, or arrested.” Katikiro said.

On Wednesday, several MPs including those who were not suspended from the House but somehow got mixed up in the melee were roughed up by security officers for defying Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, inciting violence and assaulting police officers.
The MPs including Mathias Mpuuga, Theodore Ssekikubo, Monica Amoding, Barnabas Tinkasiimire, William Nzoghu, Joy Atim, Jonathan Odur, Peter Okot, Wilfred Niwagaba and Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze among others were arrested but later released.
