Voters in Igara West constituency in Bushenyi district have launched a campaign to censure their MP; Raphael Magyezi who is championing the motion to remove presidential age limit from the 1995 Uganda’s constitution.
The voters led by Kamadi Muramuzi recently formed a group and started moving from house to house collecting signatures to recall Magyezi from parliament saying he is championing a motion that can take the country into turmoil.
According to Kamadi they have so far collected over 10,000 signatures and the campaign continues until they get the required number to have their controversial MP censured.
Reliable sources confirmed to www.mknewslink.com editor that Hon.Magyezi has met the group trying to convince them to abandon the campaign but all in vain as they turn down his pleas.
Efforts by www.mknewslink.com editor to get a comment from Magyezi about the incident were futile as his both two mobile phone lines were switched off.
Before the presidential age limit bill was tabled, the same group of voters had earlier organized a successful protest against Magyezi at his office in Butare-Kyamuhunga town council where they accused him of using his position to change the constitution for his selfish gains.
Magyezi tabled the bill for the first reading and the speaker referred it to the parliamentary committee on Legal and Parliamentary affairs chaired by Okoth Oboth. The committee decided to collect views from all Ugandans about the bill before it is brought back into the parliament floor.
