MP Alex Ruhunda: Why I Rejected NRM Caucus Plot to Remove Age Limit

By Alex Ruhunda

I have been reflecting on the future of my beloved Country Uganda, the pearl of Africa especially after an emotionally heated atmosphere in Parliament on Thursday.

I hope God will touch the heart of President Yoweri Museveni to avoid the temptation of listening to short term opportunistic individuals that are pushing for the removal of Age limit in our Constitution.

This is the chance for NRM to plan for succession if the legacy of our beloved President Museveni is to remain like that of Mwalimu Nyerere.

These were my words in the NRM caucus and I pray that we stop the overzealous of making a fundamental mistake that will create a huge political and security problem for our Country yet we were set to move out of poverty.

The people of Fort Portal made it clear to me not to tamper with the constitution by amending Article 102 (B). I will respect the people’s will. #Nikisoboka
