By Edgar Watema

The leader of opposition in Parliament Honorable Winne Kizza yesterday appealed to the legal and parliamentary committee to throw out the age limit amendment bill saying that its only intended to benefit the NRM chairman and non-other than president Museveni.

The kasese woman MP said that the opposition in parliament and some NRM MPs oppose the removal of the age limit article regardless of who is in power. she went further to  say that Uganda has more intelligent and capable citizen that can succeed president Museveni .

She also noted that basing the bill on the supreme court in a case of Amama Mbabazi VS Museveni,the electoral commission and the Attorney  general in the presidential election petition of 2016 is unfortunate since it was misunderstood in the interpretation of the ruling.

Kizza adviced the committe to return back the bill to government for purposes of ensuring that a constitutional review commission will subsequently be chosen to handle all matters of amendments
