The Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Winnie Kizza and other opposition MPs are to embark on countrywide drive to mobilize Ugandans against the Bill that seeks to amend article 102 (b) of the constitution to remove the presidential age limit of 75 years.
Kiiza told a news conference in Kampala on Thursday that they would begin tomorrow (Friday) with rallies in Kireka and Nakawa which would be coordinated by the area MPs Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda and Michael Kabaziguruka respectively.
Re-echoing the directive made by the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga on October 4, 2017 to the MPs to consult their constituencies, Kiiza cautioned the Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura against dispersing their rallies.
She condemned police for stopping the rally which had been organized in Kassanda North by the NRM MPs opposed to the Bill, stopping her recent rally she had organized in Kasese and the acts of police pulling down posters of Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) about his music tour to Kamuli which is scheduled for October 20, 2017.
