Mwenda who was speaking during the NBS TV political talk show Frontline last night said, that the FDC has earned itself a long time presidential candidate in Dr Kizza Besigye who would be in need of the age limit removal more than anyone else.
“When Dr Besigye stood for presidency in 2001, he did not know he would be returning to stand in 2006, 2011 and 2016. But he came and he will still return even in 2021 and 2031. Therefore, he needs the age limit removal more than Museveni who could die any time,” he said.
“Had Besigye won the election in 2016, these FDC people would be shouting Besigye for life and rushing to amend the same constitution,” he added.
Mwenda also reiterated that Museveni and Besigye are from the same roots“The difference between the two is that one is Besigye and another is Museveni. Give Besigye power and he will be the same, corruption wise, governance and intolerance,” Mwenda said.
