Former Forum for Democratic Change(FDC) presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye has said Ugandans will resist any attempts by President Yoweri Museveni to rely on Parliament to lift presidential age limit.

While appearing on NTV , Besiye noted that Ugandans will not watch as Museveni manipulates parliament to lift the age limit adding that the time is now for Ugandans to know that Museveni is after life presidency.

Recently, Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko revealed that he is leading a group of MPs who are working towards defeating any attempt of amending the constitutes to scrap the presidential age limit.

The 1995 Constitution bars any person above the age of 75years to contest for presidency.

Parliament can lift the restriction on age limit with a two thirds majority,which allows anyone above the age of 75 to contest for presidency.
