Kinkizi Bishop: If Majority Don’t want age limit scrapped, then why amend constitution?

Kinkizi Diocese Bishop Dan Zoreka

Kinkizi Diocese Bishop Dan Zoreka has called upon leaders to practice God’s desires if they are to enter in the Kingdom of God.

Speaking during thanks giving ceremony of famous Kabale based businessman Saulo Nuwagaba aka Majani held at St. Paul CoU Kirima in Kanungu, Bishop added that leaders deserve to do what the majority advocate not minority thus giving an example of the age limit removal bid that he said is supported by minority.

“Today, Uganda has two problems i.e TOGIKWATAKO and TUGIKWATAKO. Few people are saying Tugikwatako and the majority as saying “leave our constitution”- don’t touch it. Leaders must listen to the majority. If we are to be realistic, what are the needs of our country? Let me tell you, even people who are supporting that bad thing (Amendment); whether you are here or not, I am fully convinced from the bottom of my heart that those who are forcing the amendment know it is not good for Uganda. I don’t know whether they are inspired by their personal interests but the amendment is bad for our country.” He said.

The man of God added that though some lawmakers have not consulted him yet, but his greatest cry is that the constitution should left intact so that the young generation can witness a peaceful transition of power something vital for state development.

“MPs have not come to consult me but when they come to consult you, go to them and speak the truth that you have an obligation to defend the constitution. That they should not touch Article 102(b).” he added.

He also added that the security forces should desist from attacking us who are opposed to lifting the age limit citing that Uganda has no problem except that those who are seen to be determined to defend Article 102(b) are seen as saboteurs.

The event was attended by former presidential aspirant Dr. Kiiza Besigye, Rukungiri Municipality MP Roland Kaginda, Rukungiri Municipality Mayor Charles Makuru, FDC Secretary for Mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe and there’s.
