The ruling party NRM has denied plotting to extend President Yoweri Museveni’s stay in power by two more years.
The ruling party MPs are currently at the National Leadership in Kyankwanzi caucusing and orienting newly elected members.
The MPs were reportedly discussing term limits as well as giving Museveni more two years to stretch his term of office to seven years instead of five.
NRM deputy spokesperson Ofwono Opondo said in a tweet Monday evening that the said topic was not even part of their agenda.
“NALI has not passed any resolution extending term from 5 to 7 years, not part of agenda.”
“Ignore political detractors of NRM retreat,” he added.
He further denied a discussion on term limits.
“NRM MP Retreat, no consideration or resolution has been made on presidential age limit, and is not on agenda,” Opondo tweeted.
At Kyankwanzi, the MPs are being taught NRM ideology that involves resisting sectarianism.
In his lecture on Sunday evening, President Museveni also the party chairman, warned the MPs against the opium of religion, sectarianism and gender biases.
Meanwhile, Hamson Obua, the NRM Caucus spokesperson says the party is optimistic to emerge victorious in Amama Mbabazi’s petition.
