In short
President Yoweri Museveni has said politics is about ideology and service and not a sport where one needs to compete physically. On the proposal to increase the of term of office for the President from five to seven years, Museveni said the leaders in Africa have much more to do and need adequate time to develop the continent and saw no harm in having longer terms. This appears to be another indication that the 73-year-old leader is determined to have the constitution amended and presidential age limits removed to enable him stay on beyond 2021 when his current term of office ends.
