Age Limit: Seemingly the Parliament is ready for the Second and Third reading of the bill tomorrow!
The Plenary Sessions paper for Monday the 18th December 2017 is out. The Constitutional Amendment No. 2. or the Private Bill of Raphael Magyezi, the Age Lifting bill of Presidential Candidates is up. But not only up for a Second Reading, which is natural after the first reading and been scrutinized by the Legal and Constitutional Committee in Parliament during the recent weeks. Clearly, the National Resistance Movement have short time.
Since the Plenary Session on Monday is all in the name of the bill, secondly, it is not just the second reading that is up. If it was so, it would have been an ordinary bill. However, this is the life-line of the political life of Museveni. Therefore, it has to be speeded up. They are racing to the underground and hoping to find a gold mine. So they can live happily ever after.
Because the reading is filled with “Bills Committee Stage”, then the “Motion for the House to Resume” , after that the “Report from the Committee of the Whole House” and the “Motion for Adaption of the Report from the Committee of the Whole House”. This means by this stage, the Parliament is expected to follow the guidelines of the Committee and their majority report. Secondly, so they can move forward vote on the bill and do the third reading.
Which is apparently happening right after they have gone through the reports in quick minutes and made sure the legality is in check. The Members of Parliament and the NRM has then ensured the protocol and provisions. Even if rushed and in sensational speed. They are trying to take a Formula One instead of dipping through the jams of Kampala.
They are on the same day, after all those minutes already facilitated in haste. Its like the wig of Parliamentary Speaker Rebecca Kadaga is falling off. Like Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah has fire up his ass. That they are pushing it further. They are actually as they just voted for the acceptance of the second reading. Just as they finished discussing the report and everything else. The Parliament is actually having the third reading. Its like they should just get 2/3 of majority vote and get it all over with.
So Museveni can sign himself into life presidency, instead of keeping this charade up for another day. They are extending their legality and their methods in the Parliament. I am sure the Police and Special Forces Command will guard the city squares and the streets around Parliament. There will be a siege of the Parliament. Since this is the life work of Museveni and his will. His will is law in the end. Nothing else matter. To say so is a lie. The NRM and their syncopates has too lie. They cannot help themselves, they want to eat and needs mercy from their master.
Tomorrow will be a hectic day, a day of arrests and detained opposition. There will be violence and trouble. Still, the movement of the law will happen. Even if it is foolish and the world knows it. They are pushing it and doing it on the knives edge. Because Museveni needs it. So his blood still pumps in his veins. As long as it does, he anticipate to be the king and stay the king. No stone left unturned to stay there.
Tomorrow will not be different. It is just a mere signal and flash from darkness. That the steps to life presidency is there. If Mwenda, Mirundi or Ofwono says otherwise, you know it is false. They lie, just like their boss. Peace.
