FIGHT BREAK OUT BETWEEN UGANDA LAWMAKERS

FIGHT BREAK OUT BETWEEN UGANDA LAWMAKERS

Heavy security was deployed in the capital, campala, and police fired tear gas and arrested scores Tuesday who demonstrated their opposition to ongoing efforts to remove the age limit from the constitution.

The United States urged Uganda’s government to protect basic freedoms “without fear of intimidation,” and Amnesty International said authorities “must end their absurd attempts to silence people opposed to scrapping the presidential age limit.”

The bill has raised tensions in this East African country that has never seen a peaceful change of power since independence from Britain in 1962.
