The Government Chief Whip, Ruth Nankabirwa has advised the opposition to hold onto their early celebrations after the Age Limit Amendment motion was not tabled.

The opposition in Parliament caused chaos in the house which prompted the Deputy Speaker,Jacob Oulanyah to adjourn the house to next Tuesday.

MPs came out celebrating that they had won the first round of the battle.

However, the government Chief whip Ruth Nankabirwa said they were not surprised with what happened in parliament.

Nankabirwa said as NRM MPs they were aware that the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga and her Deputy Jacob Oulanyah had not had enough time to deliberate on the issue to a logical conclusion.

When asked to comment on the opposition celebrations, Nankabirwa termed today’s development as a “consolation for their past losses due to disorganization , with endless internal wrangles which can’t allow them any victory against the organized NRM.

She however said that, the motion is for Ugandans and at the end of the day it is Ugandans that must win.
