This made me chuckle: Brawl breaks out in Uganda parliament debate

Watch for James Brown to make an appearance!

Apparently Uganda is debating raising the presidential age limit. According to the BBC:

Tempers flared and lawmakers were filmed brawling after it was alleged an MP had brought a gun into the chamber. The speaker ordered a search but no gun was found, local media reported.

The age-limit issue is controversial because long-standing President Yoweri Museveni is 73 years old and the limit for re-election is capped at 75. But the current constitutional age limit would prevent him from standing for a sixth term in the 2021 elections.

His governing party, the National Resistance Movement (NRM), has been involved in a contentious bill to revise the country’s constitution.

A previous two-term limit was scrapped in 2005 to allow President Museveni to stand for a third term.

Such civilized folks…

  1. Yoweri Museveni is corrupt. 2 of the 5 judges of Uganda’s Supreme Court concluded that there were such illegalities in the election of 2001 that reelected Museveni by a substantial majority, that the results should be rejected. Museveni then suppressed political opposition and engineered a 2005 constitutional amendment scrapping presidential term limits, thus enabling extension of his rule.

    So I can understand the frustration of the political opposition, although I doubt things would improve if they replaced Museveni, given the dismal record of African politics.

  6. Interesting how true colors shine through once the bounds of civilized behavior are relinquished. Quite a bit like we see in the streets here from those who dislike being held to accountability by democratic court decisions.

    • Exactly, cogit….& why I’d been afraid (along w/ some like-minded friends) that Obama would foment some sort of psuedo-legal “take-over” of our government and succeed to a a third (or more) term. He did not in the strict sense of the word…but his D.C. fund, with him in DC and at the helm, is a sort of “shadow government” pouring funds and agitiatiioin against his successor—-AND, I believe it would be ever thus NO MATTER WHOM succeeded him to office….EVEN Hillary….eventually……and I don’t think those supporters who “deified” him from day one….suspect that he is capable of this….but his every movement, every shred of background that we know about him…and the evidence of his actions and words today…SHOW US that this is his capability…and certainly his aim…..

  11. Let me get this straight . . . the Africans brawl In public, but in America, the majority of the thugs in Congress/Senate work their criminal acts behind the scenes. I’m not sure which is the better system!
