Minister ferries locals to parliament to endorse age-limit bill

The minister of state for urban Development Isaac Musumba ferried his constituents to parliament to endorse the presidential age limit bill.

This followed a resolution from leaders of the ruling National Resistance Movement in Buzaaya, Kamuli District on 14th October voting  against the removal of the presidential age limit from the Constitution.

A section of older persons came to parliament with Musumba together with a petition of 5,000 signatures petitioning him to support the age limit bill so as the president Yoweri Kagutta Museveni can get chance to stand again for presidency in 2021.

A team led by kisozi L.C3 chairperson Joseph Malandi told the minister to support the bill so as president Museveni stands in 2021 to get more development in their area.

Malandi argued that in a meeting that  resolved to oppose the age limit bill at Nawanyago Technical Institute in Buzaya county,  older persons in support of the bill were not given chance to express their views on the bill.

They thus decided to petition the minister hailing from six sub counties which including Kisozi, Nawanyago, Mbulamuti, Magago, Wankole and Bugulumbya .

While receiving the petition at parliament Buzaya county MP who is also the minister of state for Urban Development Isaac Musumba said that he will go with the decision of Buzaya county voters to support the presidential age limit bill .
