AGE LIMIT PETITION: Petitioners say the 29 million shillings given to MPs was illegal
The petitioners argued that it was unlawful for Members of Parliament to receive 29 million shillings from the Consolidated Fund for consultations on a private member’s bill.

Lawyers of the petitioners have argued before the Constitutional Court sitting in Mbale that Parliament acted illegally to reinstate the two-term presidential limits without consulting Ugandans through a referendum.

The lawyers told court that term limits were not part of the original Constitutional Amendment Bill No.2 of 2017 tabled by Igara West MP Raphael Magyezi.

The petitioners also argued that it was unlawful for Members of Parliament to receive 29 million shillings from the Consolidated Fund for consultations on a private member’s bill.
