Uganda Court Validates Law Allowing Museveni to Seek Re-election
Uganda’s constitutional court on Thursday, July 26, approved removing the presidential age limit of 75 years, a ruling that would potentially allow President Yoweri Museveni to extend his three-decade rule.
It endorsed parliament’s decision to scrap the cap in December that drew accusations from opposition parties that the 73-year-old Museveni wanted to be president for life and brought protesters onto the streets.
One of the five judges said no, another had yet to deliver his verdict.
