Effort underway to allow Uganda president to rule for life


Officials with Uganda's ruling party want to remove the age limit on the presidency so long-time President Yoweri Museveni can run again, a spokesman said Wednesday. Museveni, who took power by force in this East African country in 1986, was re-elected in a disputed election in February. His current term expires in 2021.
