Uganda’s three-decade president Yoweri Museveni has reportedly admitted he is behind a plot to delete article 102b of the Constitution to be able to run for president beyond 75 years.
According to Andrew Mwenda, a journalist known for handling Museveni’s key PR assignments, Museveni reportedly told a meeting of his ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) MPs on Friday in Kampala that he was “the one behind age limit removal”.
“It is my thing and whoever is against it is against me,” Museveni reportedly added.
Mwenda also claims that Museveni was incensed with the rebel NRM MPs opposing age limit removal.
He also reportedly asked those MPs opposed to his life presidency to get out of the meeting but none dared the president.
Earlier, eight rebel MPs had been kicked out of the meeting.
