Nakifuma MP Kafeero Ssekitoleko has challenged his Budadiri West counterpart Nandala Mafabi to got for a real fist fight if he wants to block the controversial Constitution Amendment Bill 2016.
Hon. Sekitooleko who tabled the bill before parliament seeking to amend the presidential age limit, has said he is ready to exchange blows with Hon. Mafabi if he tries to block the bill.
The two almost came to blows earlier this week when Ssekitoleko proposed that the constitutional 75 years for the president be scrapped and that of judges be extended from 65 to 75 years.
Addressing press on Friday Ssekitoleko said Mafabi tried to block him from doing his duties as an MP yet he had been instructed by the speaker to make copies of the bill.
“I would like to warn him next time he does that in the corridors of power, he will see fire,” Ssekitoleko threatened.
He added: “He will know that in Nakifuma I didn’t only eat matooke but also posho that brings energy.”
Mafabi told NBS TV late yesterday evening that he was actually looking for Ssekitoleko over the same.
“If he wants, let us go outside and try fighting,” Mafabi seemed to accept the challenge.
More than 20 years ago, Constituent Assembly delegates met at the international Conference Centre to discuss the Justice Odoki led Constitutional Commission’s recommendations, which midwifed the 1995 Constitution.
Amongst the contentious issues in the CA was that of age limit.
A protege of the president, Noble Mayombo, who was then a Lieutenant and army Representative moved an amendment which would carry the day capping the age for the presidency at 75.
