National Resistance Movement (NRM) Members of Parliament have on Tuesday morning passed a motion to table a private members bill to amend article 102b in the Ugandan constitution to scrap off the presidential age limit.

The MPs sat in an extraordinary meeting and voted on the contentious amendment of Article 102 of the Constitution.

The motion was moved by the Kyaka County MP, Jakson Rwakafuuzi, a lawyer by profession, and seconded by all the attendants except one — Kumi Woman MP, Monica Amoding.

The bill will be tabled on the floor of parliament on Thursday.
