[VIDEO] Ugandan Lawmakers Throw Punches Inside Parliament Over Presidential Age Limit

A major scuffle broke out between Ugandan lawmakers on Tuesday, September 26, inside the parliament, shortly before a controversial motion was introduced that could extend President Yoweri Museveni’s grip on power.
MPs exchanged blows and kicks, with some using microphone stands as crude weapons in the melee, and at least two female lawmakers were carried out of the chamber after collapsing, according to Reuters.
At least 25 MPs opposed to the proposed constitutional amendment to prolong Museveni’s tenure were forcibly ejected on orders of the speaker for involvement in fighting on Tuesday. All other like-minded MPs then walked out.
