Kampala central legislator Hon. Muhammad Nsereko has expressed his discontentment and heart-brokenness following the decision passed by the caucus members.
Speaking while appearing on NBS Television early this morning Nsereko described the meeting as a useless Malwa resolution.
“I don’t have any word to describe the meeting. What happened wasn’t a caucus. It was a ‘Malwa’ resolution. Those members were having a ‘Malwa’ chat. The move was motivated by lies. You remember how Anite became minister?” said Nsereko.
Nsereko however also attacked the party memebers who have started claiming that not aware about what was going to be debated in the meeting. He noted that they exactly knew what they were doing since it was well orchestrated the same way the sole candidate issue was passed in Kyankwanzi.
On Tuesday 12 September 2017, the team of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) legislators voted to spearhead a private members bill to amend article 102b scraping the presidential age limit set at 75 years.
The motion was moved by Kyaka County MP Jackson Rwakafuzi to scrap the presidential age limit which was backed by all NRM MPs except the kumi Mp Monica Amoding, in a meeting chaired by MP for Bubyangabu county Adolf Kasaija Mwesigye,.
The 1995 constitution bars anyone above 75 years of age from standing for president. This means President Museveni is not ineligible to seek re-election in 2021 unless the constitution is amended.
