Kampala is gripped with fear as people still see the deployment of military and regular policemen in the city centre and around the Parliament.
Military police have been deployed at City square with armored vehicles thus putting Parliament on alert.
This action coincides with summoning of ant-Age limit removal MPs who are reporting at Kibuli police CID headquarters today.
Several civil societies, opposition MPs’ and youth groups have been planning a surprise demonstration in the city centre protesting against the plans to remove the age-limit.
www.mknewslink.com has learnt that MPs subscribing to the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party last week endorsed the lifting of the Presidential age-limit in what majority of Ugandans say, it’s aimed at making President Museveni seek for another term in office after clocking 75 years.
Museveni would be technically un qualifying to run in the next presidential elections if Article 102(b) is not amended to lift the age limit for one to contest for presidency.
Last Friday, the cabinet endorsed a decision to have a private member’s, Bill which the Igara West MP; Raphael Magyezi,is to introduce.
Addressing journalists last week, a group of NRM Members of Parliament disclosed that they would fight the age limit removal by “tearing the documents related to the Bill”, forcing police to summon them for threatening violence and inciting the public.
The MPs condemned the deployment at Parliament, stating that as representatives of the people, they cannot sit down and watch the Constitution being robbed of its glory.
Hon.Theodore Ssekikubo; the Lwemiyaga MP said that Police has failed to protect Ugandans from various forms of insecurities but works much towards stopping a just cause.
He vowed to fight more even in the intimidations.
