MP Mbabaali Survives Lynching Over Age Limit

Hajji Muhammad Muyanja Mbabaali, the Bukoto South Member of parliament in Lwengo district has narrowly survived being lynched by his electorates for supporting the presidential age-limit.

The MP convened a consultative meeting on the proposed scrapping of Article 102(b) of the constitution on Monday at Kiwangala parish in Kissekka Sub County.
However, the MP was forced to call off the meeting prematurely when the electorate turned rowdy and started pelting him with stones.

Tempers flared shortly after the MP asked his electorate to unconditionally endorse the proposed amendment so as to reward president, Yoweri Museveni for the perfect leadership style he has exhibited since he assumed power.

The voters started heckling Mbabaali forcing him to cut his speech short. They accused the legislators of coming to consult them with a predetermined position isn’t of hearing their views on the matter. Some of the voters started throwing stones at the legislator prompting police to intervene and rescue him.

At Kissekka sub county headquarters voters blocked Mbabaali from addressing them, saying he had ferried strangers into the meeting with the intentions of falsifying the results in his favor. At least six vehicles were seen offloading women clad in the yellow NRM party colors chanting NRM slogans.
