Police has Thursday morning arrested the President General of the Democratic Party (DP) Nobert Mao in a protest march against an alleged plot to remove presidential age limit after he launched the ‘Togikwatako’ (Hands Off the Age Limit) campaign at the party headquarters in Kampala.
Mao and other DP members attempted to March to City Square to take their campaign to people by pining up the banners against lifting of the age limit.
Police also raided DP headquarters at City House in Kampala and arrested several members who also included the acting party Secretary general Gerald Sitenda and now detained at CPS.
it should be noted that on Wednesday evening, president Museveni said that the proposal is non existent before terming the debate on the same as a nonsense.
However Mao says, Museveni’s words cannot be trusted and that there is need to vaccinate him against the age limit removal.
“Some people might be wondering why we’re doing all this when president Museveni said nothing is happening; My answer is why do we vaccinate people? What the president is saying is similar to going to vaccinations centers and ask why people are being vaccinated when they are not sick.” said mao
Mao said the campaign would be long term and countrywide.
