#Ugandan youth tries to strangle MP who advocates for #AgeLimit

PM Rugunda at Kabaka Mutebi's coronation ceremony
An angry youth on Monday tried unsuccessfully to rough up Kassanda South legislator, Simeo Nsubuga, at the 24th coronation ceremony of Buganda King in Buwekula county, Mubende district.
The ugly scene happened when Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi made a grand arrival at the venue to officiate on the event.
Loyalists including politicians and commoners prostrated themselves to great the Kabaka as he stepped out of his vehicle.
MP Nsubuga also lined up to greet the king, a move that angered a youth only identified as Ntege aka Kyuma Kyayesu.
Out of the blue, Ntege rushed madly at MP Nsubuga, grabbed him by the neck and dragged him out of the line threatening to “beat him silly”.

Amid oaths and proclamations, the angry youth accused MP Nsubuga of plotting to scrap the presidential age limit and let President Yoweri Museveni stand again in 2021 elections.
“People like you who support the land amendment age limit bills should be killed,” Ntege told the legislator who was chocking at the moment.
“Don’t come her pretending. You betrayed our Kabaka,” Ntege added.
It was then that Rubaga South MP Kato Lubwama intervened and rescued MP Nsubuga who had started sweating, swallowing hard in a desperate effort to stay alive.
MP Simeo was thoroughly shaken
Police officers too rushed to the scene and restrained Ntege before bundling him on the patrol vehicle.
The defiant youth shouted back at MP Nsubuga saying people like him and Kafeero Ssekitoleko should be killed for popularising the age limit bill.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda also arrived at the venue to represent President Yoweri Museveni.
