President Yoweri Museveni has signed the controversial age limit Bill into law.Constitution Amendment Bill No. 2 of 2017 was recently passed by Parliament. The Ugandan Head of State reportedly assented the Bill on December 27 Uganda President Yoweri Museveni has signed the controversial age limit Bill that was recently passed by Parliament into law. According to local media reports, the President’s press secretary Linda Nabusayi intimated to the press that Museveni signed the bill into an Act of Parliament on December 27. The move essentially means that Museveni, 73, would still seek the presidency come 2021 should he choose to. The constitutional amendment was seeking to scrap the 75 years age limit imposed on presidential candidates. Ruling party Members of Parliament passed the Bill amid protestation from Opposition legislators. The Bill sharply divided the East African nation, with religious leaders and political activists calling on Museveni not to sign the amendments into law. Museveni has been Ugandan President for more than thirty years. Kasarani half empty for Jamhuri Day celebrations.
