AGE LIMIT BILL: Parliament's Legal Committee to meet president Yoweri Museveni
The committee met in a closed-door meeting to find a way forward in regards to MP Raphael Magyezi's Constitutional Amendment bill 2017.

After almost two months of consultations with different stakeholders, the legal and parliamentary affairs committee of parliament has now decided to go and meet the president tomorrow at the statehouse in Entebbe.

The committee met in a closed-door meeting to find a way forward in regards to MP Raphael Magyezi's Constitutional Amendment bill 2017.

They will now meet President Yoweri Museveni to get his views on the bill as a former presidential candidate.

Professor Vernancious Baryamuremba was the only former presidential candidate that appeared in the committee, the rest that invitations were forwarded to didn't appear.

The committee's plan to hold consultations across the country and abroad will not happen due to lack of funds.  

Committee chairman Jacobs Oboth Oboth told NTV that they will retreat mid this week to begin writing their report.
