At least two youth who were burning yellow NRM T-shirts bearing president Museveni’s photo, have been arrested.

The group led by a one Robinson Wabulembo was on Tuesday morning setting the t-shirts on fire along Luwum Street before being apprehended.

Donning white t-shirts and carrying placards, the group said it could not tolerate lifting of age limit so as to facilitate “another term of corruption.”

“We are fed up of this government full of corrupt individuals. We say no to removal of age limit by anyone,” Wabulembo told journalists.

Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo recently said the recent publication of a notice in the Uganda Gazette to enable President Museveni appoint a constitutional review commission was being “vulgarized” and that “the opposition could lose debate aimed at revamping the Constitution.”

But opposition leaders say plans to amend the Constitution are in high gear.

Kampala Metropolitan Area police spokesperson Emilian Kayima confirmed the arrest but said he would divulge more information after a meeting he was engaged in.

The debate on removal of age limit has gained momentum among Ugandans despite efforts by government to deny efforts to have article 102(b) of the Constitution mended.

Deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana observed: “Let me clearly say it here and let it be captured on record that there is no Bill being sponsored by either the government or a private member to amend article 102 (b) of the Constitution.”

“The only Bill that I am aware of that has already been passed by Cabinet is the Land Amendment Act,” he stressed.
