Forget the Age limit bill, another group of NRM MPs led by worker’s MP Dr Sam Lyomoki have filed a notice for a new motion to introduce a private members’ bill titled: The Museveni Succession, Transition and Immunities Bill, 2017.
Other MPs behind the Motion include Mr Patrick Nsamba Oshabe (Kasanda North), Gaffa Mbwatekamwa (Kasambya), John Baptist Nambeshe (Manjiya), Ms Monicah Amoding (Kumi Woman) and Lwemiyaga MP Theodore Ssekikubo.
“Some people are trying to argue that Parliament is not interested in discussion succession… we are bringing this Bill because our President has been exceptional and we want him to retire peacefully,” Mr Sam Lyomoki told journalists at Parliament on Friday.
The Museveni Succession, Transition and Immunities Bill seeks to streamline the transition from one president to another and spell out the benefits of a retired president.
Knowledgeable sources say the bill serves to extend the frontiers in the quest for broader constitutional reforms and in accordance with Speaker’s guidance.
