Museveni, Running for 6th Term in 2021, Will Be 76 if He Wins

The move by ruling National Resistance Movement party to endorse President Museveni as its presidential candidate for the 2021 polls comes months after the presidential age limit bill was signed - scrapping the limit of 75. The 74-year-old has been in office for 32 years, and now also wants a 7-year presidential term instead of the existing 5 years.
