Somali army neutralises Al Shabaab commander, frees children
At least seven people have been arrested in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, following demonstrations against a proposed bill to lift the age limit to run for president.
The current age limit is 75.
The changes to the constitution would allow President Yoweri Museveni to run for president again in 2021. The president’s exact age is up for debate, but his Wikipedia page says he is 73.
Youth activist group The Alternative, who organised the demonstration, says their offices were broken into last night by soldiers and police.
They claim that laptops, computers and campaign materials were taken, reports the BBC’s Catherine Byaruhanga in Kampala.Source: BBC
