Uganda Polls: Christain Council asks govt to postpone Presidential elections to 3 years. Whisper Eye Reports

The Uganda Joint Christian Council led by Archbishop of Kampala, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has asked the Uganda government to postpone presidential elections for 3 years.

According to the men of God, they also want the constitution to be amended to allow incumbent Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to continue leading during the period of postponement.

Dr. Lwanga said politicians are not following Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) which has escalated the spread of Covid-19 with more deaths expected after elections.

“We know the constitution says if elections are postponed, the Speaker of Parliament takes over the government. Article 259 of the Constitution allows Parliament to amend laws. We are asking Parliament to sit down and amend the constitution to allow President Museveni to continue ruling and guiding the country during the period of three-year postponement of elections,” Dr. Lwanga emphasized.
