Police have arrested Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, over his reported plans to lead a demonstration against the tabling of the Bill to remove the age limit.

Police arrested Lukwago from his home as he was preparing to leave in a procession to the city centre to demonstrate against age limit removal. He was whisked away to Kira Division Police station.


This was after Police Chief, Gen. Kale Kayihura, while meeting city traders on Wednesday banned any demonstrations (for and against) lifting of the age  limit.

Igara West MP (NRM), Raphael Magyezi, is slated to table a private member’s Bill in which he seeks to push for the removal of presidential age limit.

 

 

Meanwhile, police has sealed off the home of former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate, Rtd. Col. Kizza Besigye in Kasangati.

Besigye was also slated to join Lukwago in the demonstration against the term limit removal.
