More than 100 leaders from Ruhaama County in Ntungamo district under their umbrella Ruhaama Development Platform have unanimously resolved to support the proposal to scrap the presidential age limit from the constitution.

Ruhaama Development Platform alias Ishaazi brings together Sub county LC 3 Chairpersons, NRM Chairpersons, LC V councilors, Members of Parliament and selected opinion leaders.  The leaders say they can't remain silent on the matter yet president, Yoweri Museveni and his wife, Janet Museveni hail from there.

Speaking at the meeting held at Kyahweire Tourist hotel Ntungamo Municipality before the resolution was reached, Tom Muhoozi, the Chairperson of Ruhaama Development Platform, said they came up to pronounce themselves on the matter because the whole country has been waiting to hear what is coming from Ntungamo.

Denis Muhumuza Savimbi, the Itojo Sub county LC V councilor, said they had resolved to support the proposed amendment of article 102 (b) of the constitution.

William Beijukye Zinkurateire, the Ruhaama County MP, said there was no need to discuss the proposed amendment since NRM legislators have already made a binding decision to scrap Article 102 (b) of the constitution. 

He however, said all they need is support from the grassroots on the matter.
