“Legislators should know who sent them to parliament before taking a step rather they will be voted out of the house’’ Mwiru said.
He adding that Ugandans are angry about tampering with the constitution, before execution of what they call a big project of lifting the presidential age limit, they should first discuss and negotiate with voters who sent them in parliament’’.

“In other to stop being attacked by other activities in the caliber of Ntege, legislators should vote out the lifting of the presidential age limit”. Angry Mwiru implored.
