National Resistance Movement (NRM) party members gathered at Kati Kati Restaurant have today resolved to embark on countrywide campaign to promote the proposal to remove the presidential age limit.
The meeting coordinated by presidential advisor David Mafabi, brought together NRM youth leaders, academicians and MPs, resolved that the NRM party should remove the age limit to allow President Yoweri Museveni continue leading the country beyond 2021.
MPs Simeo Nsubuga of Kassanda South and Col. Fred Mwesigye of Nyabushozi County assured the congregation that as certain as day follows night the age limit will be lifted to allow Museveni aged 72, contest for presidency again in 2021.
Article 102 of the Constitution which some now want amended does not allow a person of 75 years and above to contest for presidency.
