DP’s Mao warns pro-age limit removal MPs

Must read

Democratic Party (DP) President Norbert Mao has said the parliamentary vote for or against the lifting of presidential age limit is a new momentum to ensure that those who have ‘betrayed the will of the people’ pay a political price in future.

Mao made the remarks early today, as the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee chaired by Jacob Oboth Oboth is set to table age limit report before legislators for debate and voting to remove or maintain presidential age limit that was set at 75 years, as enshrined in the 1995 Constitution.

‘’We remain focused and united; our togetherness is our greatest power, whatever happens in parliament is the beginning of the end of Museveni’s regime,” Mao said at DP headquarters before declaring the ‘K’ogikwatako protest week’.

 

The K’ogikwatako protest week against the removal of presidential age limit begins today, with protagonists insisting on among others restoration of presidential term limits, maintaining presidential age limit and having in place an independent Electoral Commission.

“Protection of the independence of the judiciary, shared power among the people of Uganda, freedom of association and guarantees of civil liberties, and maintain the status quo on citizens owning land and prior compensation by government before it takes over citizen’s land are among the motives of the struggle,” Mao, a vociferous critic of the amendment of Article 102 (b), declared, adding: Government should see an opportunity and take the lead and creatively respond to the citizens’ grievances for peaceful transfer of power.”

According to Mao, during the ‘protest week’ the DP will, through public lectures, issuance of car stickers and flyers, reach out to all Ugandans and mobilize against the lifting of presidential age limit.

Meanwhile, by press time it was reported that Mao and his team had been locked up inside the DP headquarters.
