Following the ongoing debate in regard to removal of presidential age limit, the inter religious council of Uganda (IRCU) has urged legislators to first get their electorates views before taking any decisions.
While addressing a news conference at IRCU headquarters Mengo, chairperson IRCU also the Mufti of Uganda His eminence Sheik Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje reveled that as religious leaders, they are dismayed by the audacity of some NRM members of parliament who on September 12th, 2017, convened and passed a resolution to amend article 102b of the constitution of the republic of Uganda before taking the debate to the general public.
They want this to be done through a referendum process as opposed to the minority to decide for the majority on such instrumental and constructive matter.
He further lashed at security agencies over harassing one side and favouring another.
He appealed to president Museveni to expeditiously come out and give his stand over the matter.

Meanwhile the arch Bishop of the church of the province of Uganda His Grace Stanley Ntagali, and Kampala archdiocese Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga articulated that due to negative views from the public over this matter, the lawmakers should first seek advice of voters from their respective areas before make any further debate.
