How Acholi Mps Voted On Age Limit

On Wednesday, Legislators passed the Constitution (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill, 2017 what is commonly known as the ‘Age Limit Bill’ dropping the 75 year upper age limit for presidential candidates and extending the term of Parliament to seven years.

The Acholi Mp that surprised many is Beatrice Anywar who voted in favor of the lifting of Age Limit. Anwyar is one of the renowned big shots in the opposition who got recognized nationally when in 2007 she rose and mobilized people and demonstrated against the government when it proposed the sale of Mabira forest. This not only saved the sale of the forest, but also her nickname Mama Mabira. Anywar who defected from the FDC is currently serving as the MP for Kitgum Municipality under an independent ticket.

Here’s the full list of how Acholi Mps voted for the Age Limit Bill.
