The ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM] MPs who voted against the age limit bill will not attend the upcoming national delegates conference scheduled for January 25, 2020 at Namboole stadium.

NRM Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba, revealed this during the second meeting of the 3rd National Conference, as a unanimous decision of the secretariat.

Lumumba said the NRM national chairman also President Museveni gave guidance that for those Members of Parliament “who did not move with the party when we were having Constitutional amendments will not be invited”.

“Therefore we don’t expect them to attend the national conference,” she noted, quickly adding, that unless they cleared by the party’s disciplinary committee.
