Shadow Attorney General Wilfred Niwagaba was on Saturday welcomed by a section of leaders from Kigezi Sub Region in his quest to introduce ground breaking reforms to the electoral provisions within the current constitution as amended.
Niwagaba who has seen his road to electoral reforms gain popularity both in Parliament and outside it was speaking on a local FM radio station in Kabaale Town.
Popular among his reforms include reinstating of presidential term limits, having a deputy president run along side the president in an election and the removal of members of the Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) from Parliament and other public offices.
Niwagaba received acclaim from prominet leaders who directly divulged their views with him on radio.
“I am happy the Ndorwa East MP came up with these proposals which I encourage Parliament to support,” said Gad Byomungi, the Kanungu District Vice Chairman.
“All countries neighbouring Uganda have Presidential Term Limits, why not Uganda?” asked Rubanda District vice chairperson Pastoli Twinomuhangi.
According to Kabaale District Secretary for Finance and Planning Johnson Baguma, term limits enable Ugandans to test the leadership qualities of other people.
