The opposition Democratic Party has constituted a 10 member legal committee made up of lawyers to defend the rights of party members who will get arrested during their age limit campaign called K’ogikwatako.

The committee follows last week’s incident where 14 members of the party were arrested together with Mao and his acting secretary general Gerald Siranda for contesting any attempts to amend article 102(b) of the constitution.

Addressing journalists today, the party president Norbert Mao said the 10 stand to offer and instill confidence to all those in the fight against the age limit removal that they shall be protected.

Some of the lawyers include;Mukasa Mbidde the DP representative in the East African Legislative Assembly , Medard Segona and Kenneth Kakande who also doubles as the party spokesperson.
