Museveni Retirement Bill Finalized

Workers Member of Parliament, Sam Lyomoki has notified the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga of a motion to introduce a bill seeking Museveni’s safe exit from the country’s top most office.

The motion for the bill titled “The Museveni Succession, Transition and Immunities Bill 2017”, was delivered to Kadaga’s office on Friday morning.

“Notice is hereby given for a motion for leave of Parliament to move a private member’s Bill entitled ‘The Museveni Succession, Transition and Immunities Bill, 2017’ moved in accordance with Rules 110 and 111 of the Rules of Procedure of Parliament of Uganda,” part of the notice said.

Museveni’s succession law is the third notice of motion within the space of only one week.

The first notice of motion was on Tuesday given to Deputy Speaker, Jacob Oulanyah, the presiding chair, by Igara West MP, Raphael Magezi seeking leave to introduce a private member’s Bill to scrap the presidential age limit.

The proposed amendment of article 102 (b), which is largely viewed to give Museveni chance to stand again in 2021, stirred vigorous debate in the country and caused chaos on the floor of Parliament on Thursday.

Another notice of motion was sent to Oulanyah’s office on Wednesday morning, seeking for a general constitutional review of all the articles in the 1995 Constitution.

The motion prepared by Patrick Nsamba Oshabe and widely being supported by those against the age limit amendment, wants a Constitutional Review Commission to first be put in place to study the articles and come out with those supposed to be amended.

Parliament now has 3 related critical items with serious political ramifications to deal with.
