There was a low turn up of NRM supporters at the age limit consultation rally organised by Burahya County Member of Parliament Margaret Muhanga and addressed by President Yoweri Museveni. The rally, organised on Thursday afternoon, had received week-long massive publicity on local radio stations, including promises of transport to and from Karambi Play Ground in Kabarole district, the venue of the rally.
John Kusemererwa, the Kabarole District National Resistance Movement-NRM party Chairperson, confirmed Musevenis visit, saying that he was invited by Margaret Muhanga, the Burahya County Member of Parliament and a strong supporter of the proposed amendment.
MP Margaret Muhanga accuses fellow legislators of overstepping their mandate saying that no one, not even the Auditor General has powers to inquire into a matter that had been adjudicated upon by the Supreme Court.
The accusations against Burahya County MP Margaret Muhanga stem from a transaction from which she acquired 23.1 acres of land from Uganda Broadcasting Corporation UBC at a cost of 10.2 billion Shillings. The land in question is located in Bugolobi, a suburb of Kampala.
