Parliament was today unable to listen to Rafael Magezi’s motion seeking leave to table a Private Members Bill to amend Article 102 (b) of the Constitution, which will allow President Museveni stand for presidency in 2021.
The following is a list of the top 10 MPs who tirelessly mobilized colleagues to ensure that the ‘bad faith’ bill is at least aborted for now.
This NRM MP from Bududa appears to be the newest member of the ‘Rebel’ MPs group. He has appeared on various media platforms to oppose the amendments.
Only yesterday, this Ayivu constituency MP thumped Ibrahim Abiriga to pulp in the corridors of parliament for supporting the removal of the age limit. He has promised action on Thursday.
The troubled Nakawa division legislator made it to Parliament today after a terrible accident months ago, and he came by way of an ambulance. It was so inspirational and that’s why we included him on the list!
One of a few people in history to challenge MU7 for the candidacy of NRM’s president candidate. The Dokolo legislator has joined hands with ‘rebel’ MPs to stop the castration of the Constitution. There were demonstrations in Lira orchestrated by him.
We will not let anyone take the huge success of KOGIKWATAKO campaign other than the DP leader. He appeared on various TV Station, social media, and print media voicing his opposition to the age – limit.
Today, we saw NRM youth clad in T-shirts with MU7’s portrait in support of KOGIKWATAKO.
Having been accused of going away at such a critical moment, the Leader of Opposition was back just in time to move the motion of the day that such a motion as Magezi’s should not be tabled now.
This NRM MP has positioned himself as a person with a conscious of the nation. He tabled a countermotion to Magezi’s motion seeking a constitution review commission as opposed to amending the constitution through a Private Members bill.
The defacto leader of the ‘rebel’ MPs has to patrol Parliament without sleep up to Thursday to ensure the dubious bill isn’t tabled without a piece of action.
The central business district legislator has been a champion of the cause. If only Nsereko could realize the huge potential he possesses, only the sky would be the limit.
Most of you have seen his video which went viral after that high octane press conference where he and his colleagues promised to do everything in their power, even if it required dying to stop that tabling of the dubious bill.
No Ugandan knows the power of social media like Gashumba does. He has mobilized hundreds of Ugandans especially on social media to shun the lifting of the age – limit so Ugandans can have a chance to witness a peaceful transfer of power.
He has mobilized youth in universities such Makerere University and other institutions of learning to oppose the amendment of the age – limit.
