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.

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