I do not suppose that President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has heard of the #AprilRevolution which I understand is underway already to kick his sorry butt out of Uganda and back to the Bush where Leopards belong with their hyenas and devour each other! Museveni said he does not serve anyone and does not serve Uganda. He is also on record saying he only works for his family.
President Museveni has dismissed calls to discuss the removal of the age limit from the constitution and his succession, saying it's not the right time.
Recently, a section of the media carried reports showing that some legislators allied to the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party were planning to table a resolution pushing the removal of term limits.
President Museveni's son-in-law, Mr Odrek Rwabwogo also wrote to the media calling for debate on the political transition, economic reforms and internal democracy in NRM. Now, president, Museveni has distanced himself from talk of the removal of the age limit, saying he isn't interested in the matter. Museveni will be above 75 years at the expiry of his current term, which makes him ineligible to contest for presidency without the removal of the age limit from the constitution. Addressing journalists at Kawumu State Lodge in Luweero District on Tuesday evening, Museveni said he is only concerned about the future of Africa and what should be done but not small things like age limit.
Mr Abdul Nadduli, the minister Without Portfolio agrees with Mr Museveni, but warns him to reign in on his family members and relatives, saying they may lead to his downfall. However, the Democratic Party (DP) president, Norbert Mao, said Mr Museveni is interested in the removal of the age limits to allow him become president for life.
He argues that NRM has no alternative to succeed Mr Museveni who has been in power for over 30 years now that is why they are plotting to remove the age limit to enable him stand again.
According to Mr Mao, Ugandans should continue discussing the political transition and avoid being diverted by Mr Museveni that he is not interested in the matter.
He further notes that Mr Museveni duped Ugandans that he was not interested in the removal of term limits from the constitution but turned around to bribe MPs to pass the proposal.
