Kaliro district woman MP Margret Mbeiza should count herself lucky after she survived lunching by an enraged crowd in her constituency.
Mbeiza a ruling party legislator had traversed the constituency to promote the removal of age limit law which has since sent shivers down the political spine.
Lawmkers opposed to this bill which is likely to be tabled in Parliament next week said they will rally Ugandand across the country to express discontent to whoever is supportive of the removal of age cap.
If passed, the constitution will be amended to enable leaders beyond 75 years of age to contest for any elective position in the country.
This is seen as a favour to ruling party chairman President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who is 73 years of age which makes him ineligible to stand again according to the current law.
The regime is using many approaches to see that the constitution is reviewed.
Several NRM legislators have been meeting their voters throwing parties and enticing them with material things to support age limit.
But to Mbeiza’s consternation, voters chased away and pelted stones at her vehicle while she had made a stop over in Kaliro town.
In the video obtained by this website the electorate unequivocally pronounces it’s stance on age limit warning her and her ilk not to tamper with the constitution.
“Kemugeza nemujikwatako mujakulaba,” they chanted in local language Lusoga, meaning if you dare touch the constitution you will regret the consequences.
Opposition MPs have openly vowed to shed blood if it’s what it takes to protect the constitution.
