After the candidature of Honorable Jacob Oulanya for Deputy Speaker was successful, in his speech President Museveni congratulated the NRM carders for passing their first test with insight of the presidential term limit extension next on the NRM menu.
However on the side of the opposition, it is presumed to be un constitutional and vow to use the powers entrusted in them to protect the law and serve the will of the people.
This influenced Kasese woman MP and also the leader of opposition in the10th parliament to call upon fellow MPs on the side of opposition to avoid associating themselves in any parliamentary sessions associated with the removal of the age limit for presidency so as to enable the chairman of NRM who is the President of Uganda to contend again for presidency in 2021.
According to the Uganda’s constitution, any person beyond 75yrs is not allowed to stand for presidency and if they don’t change the constitution, in 2021 president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni will not be allowed to stand again for presidency because of the age limit.
This was part of her speech yesterday at parliament when presenting the report about her performance ever since she was appointed as the leader of opposition a year age. Winnie went ahead to say “NRM wants to change the article of the constitution to their favor which is not acceptable by law”.
