Visibly angry section of NRM MPs have promised to do whatever it takes to prevent any amendments to the constitution with the aim of lifting the age limit.
‘Rebel’ MPs Muhammad Nsereko,Barnabas Tinkasiimire, Theodore Ssekikubo and Wilfred Niwagaba (Ndorwa East) were joined by MP John Baptist Nambeshe and MP Felix Okot Ogong to address the media.
MP Ssekikubo described NRM MPs’ actions as treasonable, warning of disastrous consequences should the MPs bring forth the debate on plenary.
MP Okot Ogong, in poetic remarks, said the NRM leaders “should know that there are other people capable of running the country. If President Kagame had remained here, I am sure by now you would be saying there are no leaders, but who has not seen what he has done in Rwanda? Obviously, there are many leaders.”
