Bobi Wines writes to EC, Demands referendum for Age limit removal

Bobi Wine

Kyadondo East legislator Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has asked for a national referendum on the controversial presidential age limit removal from the constitution.

In a detailed letter dated 16th September directed to the Electoral Commission, Bobi Wine heighted article 1 of the Uganda constitution that states that ‘Power belongs to the people’, therefore creating need for all Ugandans to be consulted in a referendum.

A referendum is a general vote by the electorate on a single political question that has been referred to them for a direct decision.

The lawmaker adds that some of the politicians have gone against the will of the people which can only be solved in a referendum exercise.

Bobi Wine added that, “Every Ugandan must be heard and that it would give an opportunity to the common person at all levels and in all corners of the country to reassert their sovereignty”

“This will enable us ascertain how many voters constitute the required one tenth in the respective districts to collect their signatures because it’s through a referendum that the local people can regain power to decide for their country on some issues that some elite cliques of Politicians have always wrongly fulfilled.” He added.
