25 Most Chaotic Photos of Uganda MP’s Fighting Against Presidential Age Limit Removal

This week has been one of the most chaotic ones in the Ugandan Parliament as it was the first time ever the army and presidential guards got to enter the country’s Parliament to throw out disagreeing Members who had refused to move out as requested by the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.

This came about when the Speaker passed a motion to debate about the presidential age limit removal whereby any person of any age would come out and run for presidency, a motion most Members of Parliament went against saying that it would be tempering with the country’s constitution hence the term ‘Togikwatako.’

When loosely translated to English, “Togikwatako” translates as “Don’t touch it” which stands as a warning to anyone who wants to touch and tamper with the country’s constitution’s article 102b which states that “NO Person Beyond 75 years Should ever rule Uganda.”

Since Members of Parliament swore to fight and protect the constitution, this annoyed most of them hence forcing out a break of a battle inside the parliament. Chairs were thrown, Microphones where plugged out and their stands were used as fighting sticks.

After approximately an hour, of the army dressed in suites and only identified intelligence agents guarding the President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga came in again and suspended all the 25 Members of Parliament who had protested.

Below are some of the Most Unforgettable moments showing the huge fight that Broke up in the Uganda Parliament.

    I can not discuss on issues of no term limit and land law reviews when my people in Bwamba, Bundibugyo are suffering after being chassed from their ancestral land formerly known as Matongo now Semuliki National Park by the government of the colonial rule in 1920’s and the government of Uganda in 1983. What is being discuss in Parliament cannot make sense to these unlawfully evicted people. We see now what is happening in Uganda are just individual interests that benefit their own sons and grands. Government of Uganda wake up and intervene on issues of the seven clans that have submitted their petition in the office of the President, the British High Commissioner and the Chairperson Uganda Land Review Commission.
