Ugandan Age Limit Case - Petitioners Win Some, Lose Some

The joint petitioners opposed to presidential age limit removal failed to convince the Constitutional Court to have Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga questioned about the role she played in the amending of the constitution in 2017. But the judges ruled that the other witnesses have to appear before court on April 17 at 9am for cross examination.

The five justices of the court will commence with submissions of the petitioners including Uganda Law Society and Kampala Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago, who represents Members of Parliament challenging the amendment (file photo).
