Kasumba Patrick to give his position on the ongoing presidential age limit amendment bill the question he ignored thus prompting the residents to boo him.
They also tasked him to explain why they need to change the constitution now something he also failed to answer.
When Kasumba failed to give his position, residents started singing and heckling him hence blocking him from delivering his message.
Residents also turned rowdy when Kasumba said that while making consultations they will not make rallies because the rallies are attended by drunkards and people who use cocaine adding that they are going to only meet a cross section of people like the elders, religious leaders among others.
During the same meeting, the Mayor Masindi municipality, Joab Businge used the same platform and attacked the Mps for sidelining Ugandans while doing their consultations, noting that MPs are doing
consultations among NRM members only something which is not right.

them to parliament.
