Civil society organizations vow to block scraping of the age limit discussion

By Wasswa Deo

Members of Civil society say they  will do whatever it takes to block President Museveni and some NRM members of parliament  from  passing  the bill that intends to scrape away the presidential Age limit.

Crispy Kaheru, the national coordinator of Citizens coalition on electoral democracy Uganda, says once this article is scraped, the country’s constitution will remain useless.

He says the civil society is set to begin a citywide mobilization to ensure Ugandans put pressure to members of parliament to confirm that this move does not see light on the floor of parliament.

Sources reveal that the 2017 bill that seeks to amend the constitution to remove the Article 102, shall be published in the Uganda gazette in a few weeks’ time before it can come to parliament for debate.
