Former Supreme Court Judge Prof. George Kanyeihamba has lashed out on Members of Parliament saying that they don’t have moral authority to amend the constitution which he and colleagues made after countrywide consultations.
Kanyeihamba who was part of the Constituent Assembly which drafted the 1995 Constitution, said all those proposals by MPs are possible but they are purely ‘un-academic, absurd and irrelevant to the nation.
“MPs have no moral authority to amend our Constitution which we made after countrywide consultations. All those proposals by MPs are possible but they are purely ‘un-academic, absurd and irrelevant’ to our country,” said Kanyeihamba.
The former commerce minister further revealed that amending the constitution would be political madness since when they made it (constitution), it was the best they made for the country which has a historical background characterized with political instability.
“They’re relating the amendment to President Museveni. They’re saying he’s young, which is true, but he’ll be violating the Constitution. It would be political madness to amend the Constitution. When we made the Constitution, it was the best we made,”
