Opinion: The NRM MPs cannot even manage to explain the Age Limit Bill to the Legal Committee!
Today was yet another dramatic day in the Parliament as the Raphael Magyezi Constitutional Amendment in the presence of himself and Minister of Justice Kahinda Otafiire where to make sure the proceedings went accordingly, apparently, they were not prepared or ready to be questioned by the opposition MPs. They walked out of the Parliamentary Committee in Protest. The National Resistance Movement who has the majority, walked out of the Committee, because they couldn’t argue for the bill.
The Minister and Magyezi came with two documents to preside in the bill, but they didn’t want to sign-off on them. Meaning they didn’t want to be bound by their own arguments and possible amendments to the bill. As the Committee was about to discuss the bill and check the rights of applying the bill into Parliament. Clearly, the writer of it, Magyezi and chief promoter Otafiire, couldn’t stomach the pressure and high-blood pressure to deliver results for their master. They had to storm out and walk it off.
That the NRM MPs are whining and bitching as they cannot allow or accept public scrutiny of the bill is evident. Even the head-honcho of the bill is on the defense, when someone asks questions about it. It is as if Magyezi MP knows how filled of venom his bill is, but wants the whole republic to drink the toxic poison he offers it. That is amazing that he has the courage and belittling of himself in the stance of simple questions from fellow MPs.
The tragedy of all if this, is that this is just beginning of the proceeding within the Legal Affairs Committee, unless the Parliament vote for restructure, the people who are in it. Will have the power to question it and also the basis of the matter. It is like the NRM have forgotten how the protocol work and how it is supposed to be. Magyezi just wants the bill to get his payday and be forever basking in glory of President Museveni. See I wrote the bill that gave your life presidency! Can you please offer me a giant slice of pudding and some chai? It is just like that and a bigger pay-off then a tasty dessert.
I am sure if it was anyone else of any other political party that tried this sort behavior, they would be suspended or sanctioned with ill behavior in the Parliament. Instead, since this is all NRM and loyalists of Museveni. They will walk another day, since they are there to do his bidding and by my reckoning, the loyal subjects of him.
That they lack courage and stamina, that they lack legal arguments and cannot even be questioned in a committee over the bill; how can the NRM must public support or even consultations, when they cannot be asked a few barring questions from fellow MPs?
It must be toxic; it must be deadly and must be true embodiment of evil, when the NRM MPs cannot master their tongue or their arguments to sufficiently grace the Legal Committee in Parliament.
Magyezi, how little mind or heart do you have? How little courage and spirit do you have? Since you cannot be questioned over the lifting of the age limit, how come? What does it take you to understand, how foolish you are right now? Certainly, Otafiire isn’t a brilliant mastermind, he is just a NRM Stooge from the Bush-War who Museveni can trust, because he has no morals or understanding of what he do. But you should know better, but you don’t. That is evident with your speeches and public appearances. That you got no idea.
None of you, NRM MPs knows how to defend this bill, neither have you the mental the capacity to usher it in, you just know how to eat the consultation funds. That is something you do know and will do. However, explaining the real reason for the Age Limit and standing behind it will all be a lie. The big lie being that this is not to cater to Museveni and his life presidency project, but all of us knows this.
Time to take it and eat the venom, take the toxic water and spill the drink. Hope you can handle it and drive, because as long as this one is PASSED. It will be rocky road. Peace.
