Uganda court hears challenge to presidential age-limit move

The High Court in Uganda is hearing an opposition attempt to annul a constitutional amendment which removes presidential age limits.

MPs voted overwhelmingly last year to scrap the age limit of 75.

It meant 73-year-old President Yoweri Museveni, in power for more than 30 years, could seek re-election in 2021.

Opposition lawyers argued that the amendment was "smuggled" into law, and parliament had
not followed proper procedures when adopting it.

Security has been increased at the court in the eastern city of Mbale, and some roads have been shut to prevent any unrest.

The opposition has repeatedly accused Mr Museveni of being an authoritarian ruler who wants to cling to power.

His allies say he is a democrat who has guaranteed stability in the East African state.

African people are very natural rulers who should never have received sabotage by snaky trash customs of less fortunate rulers intruding over what they can never be. i have had it with opening another page of cheap slander at highly accomplished wise leaders; time and again. just because i live in NY i can't be shy to this cheap trend of phony imposed civil wars manifested by some phony foreign scam artists. i choose to praise these power house rulers who help the globe by their impeccable strength of reign in their own land. President Yoweri Museveni will have much gratitude from my heart.
