Uganda Court Validates Law Allowing Museveni to Seek Re-election

2018-07-27 09:11
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. CREDIT: Reuters
