We are Ready to Die Over Age Limit-Besigye

Oppostion Strongman Besigye in an earlier interview
Four time Presidential Candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has said that the opposition will make it impossible for the ruling National Resistance Movement and President Museveni to amend the constitution and remove the age limit.
During a press conference at Katonga road in Kampala, Besigye said that the struggle against the amendment of the constitution and the regime has only started and will not end until there is a transition of power.

“We shall make it impossible for Museveni and his junta to continue doing this (running the country lawlessly). It does not matter even if they pass this (amendment), they may even decide to go and sit at state house of Kyankwanzi and they pass it. It does not matter; what matters is what the people of Uganda want,”

“The struggle is on, it wont be a one-day thing, they may come back on Monday to try and pass the amendment, but the struggle will go on until there is a transition in this country. We are willing to pay the highest price,” he added.

He called upon the public to  take a clear position regarding the age limit. adding that the country is not a partisan issue as it involves everyone who is fighting a transition to a democratic dispensation.

“What is going on is not a matter between the NRM and the opposition. Constitutional matters are not partisan that is why we have many now who are elected on NRM ticket and are rightly saying this is wrong, because this is a matter for oppression vs oppressed,” he said.
