Age Limit Appeal to be Heard This Month by Regional Court

The East African Court of Justice has set October 29th 2019 as the date to commence hearing of the matter in which lawyer Male Mabirizi wants the Constitutional Amendment Act of 2018 on presidential age limit nullified

In a hearing notice, Mabirizi the Applicant and the Attorney General have been ordered to appear on that day without fail

This matter will come up for hearing before lady Justice Monica Mugenyi, Dr Justice Dr Charles Nyawello and Hon justice Charles Nyachac in an open court in Arusha

Mabirizi has in the past weeks been trying to raised funds to handle this matter.

“Although the contributions from the public have not been that much but that will not stop me from pursuing my case because opportunities in life come once,” he said.

In April this year, the majority judgment of Supreme Court justices dismissed the consolidated appeal by Uganda Law Society, 6 Members of Parliament and Mabirizi as it upheld the Age limit amendments

Mabirizi decided to appeal to the East African Court of Justice seeking nullification of the Age Limit Law as amended by Parliament
