A Daily Monitor OpEd article (link below) says: "The 1995 Constitution is
probably the most abused Constitution in the world. It has suffered
countless amendments, starting with a rather ‘ harmless’ one of increase of
the number of Cabinet ministers in 1996, and then the “killer amendment’’
of 2005 which abolished term limits. That actually destroyed the spirit of
the Constitution. The current Bill to remove age limits is the burial of
the carcass."

What many are still fearing to say, is that, no matter how long it takes,
Uganda will basically now need a fresh, completely new constitution that
serves the country, its values, and its wishes. One that will be truly by
the people, and for the people. Not the "mere paper" as they say themselves
that we have today which has been serving an individual from its inception.
