Forum for Democratic Change party president, Gen Mugisha Muntu has urged opposition Members of Parliament together with all well-meaning independent, and NRM MPs to use whatever legally means necessary to obstruct, defeat any attempts to have this Age Limit bill from debated or passed in parliament.
On Tuesday NRM legislators convened at parliament and agreed to table a motion advocating for removal of the presidential age cap. Their idea attracted a lot of backlash from the general public including NRM ‘rebel’ MPs led by Mohamed Nsereko, Barabbas Tinkasimire, Winfred Nuwagaba among other MPs.
However in a press conference held at parliament this morning, the State Minister for Investment and Privatization in the Ministry of Finance vowed push the lifting of the presidential age limit that was set at that age of 75 claiming that NRM government cannot be threatened due to the passion of the army.
In a statement published on his twitter account about the ongoing ways to subvert the constitution Gen. Muntu called upon all well meaningful Ugandans to rise up and use the available measures to speak out against this ill- conceived selfish motive aimed at reducing the beautiful image of our mother land to a personal pet project.
‘’I have always believed it that it is not enough to oppose wrong policies, regarding land our position is that the current law does not require any change at all’’. Gen Muntu said in a statement about the ongoing ways to subvert the constitution.
According to Muntu, the current lazy plan to implement government projects with stipulated time has clogged the system and retarded it virtually impossible to achieve meaning.
‘’Museveni himself admitted to corruption, incompetence and unprofessionalism manifested in his government. Therefore, to turn against the current laws is scapegoating and self-defeating’’. He stressed
