Ugandan politicians went to war for 2 days straight in a WWE tag team style brawl over the country’s presidential age limit.
Reuters — Lawmakers brawled in Uganda’s parliament for a second day running on Wednesday over a fiercely disputed move to change the constitution to let long-ruling President Yoweri Museveni run for re-election after age 75.
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, a Reuters journalist on the scene said.
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.
After calm returned, ruling party MP Raphael Magyezi introduced the contested motion authorizing parliament to draft and present a bill that would lift the constitution’s age cap on presidential candidates.
Under the existing constitution, eligibility to stand as a presidential candidate in the East African country has an age ceiling of 75.
That makes Museveni, 73, in power since 1986 and increasingly accused of authoritarianism and a failure to curb corruption, unqualified to seek re-election at the next polls in 2021. Removing the age cap would erase that barrier.
Smh, clearly the US isn’t the only country that has ahem… “president probs.”
It’s really shameful that politicians and lawmakers can’t seem to come together and do their jobs without pure hellfire and brimstone unleashing. It’s unfortunate that they don’t seem as concerned about helping the people as they do “flexing their power” among each other, meanwhile WE THE PEOPLE are casualties of the war.

Compton legend Eric “Eazy E” Wright’s widow is suing his son for the rights over the name of his company, Ruthless Records.
Eric “Lil Eazy” Wright Jr. is the oldest son of the rap pioneer.
Ruthless Records was founded by Eazy-E , Jerry Heller and Dr. Dre. in Compton, California in 1986. The label’s acts over the years have earned RIAA certifications of Platinum or higher on 15 of its released albums, including releases by N.W.A, Eazy-E, MC Ren, The D.O.C., Michel’le, J.J.Fad and Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony.
According to Bossip:
In a lawsuit filed by the widow of Eazy-E, Tomika Wright is looking to stop Eazy’s son, Eric Darnell Wright, from using the name “Ruthless” to sell his record label. According to The Jasmine Brand, she filed a federal trademark infringement suit against him this week. In the suit, she alleges that Eric and his business partner, Arnold White, posted a website called ruthlessrecordsinc.com.
She claims that they are using the site to do business as Ruthless Records. The site is described the company as “a full service marketing and business strategies firm, specializing in the music and entertainment industry. Our goal is to bring new music to life by inspiring a culture of creative artists”.
Tomika is not here for it. Eazy-E founded Ruthless Records in 1986 and she has owned the company since Eazy-E’s death.

So this old guy has got to be Stanley from the movie “Friday” — 10.0!
Furious about two utility trucks parked outside on his lawn, Jorge Jove, of Miami, Florida decided he would “pop a cap” (or 12) to let AT&T know he means business.
First he nonchalantly guns down all 4 tires on both trucks and then lets off a few more rounds with his revolver as the workers looked on and filmed the “walk by” in horror.
As the bullets flew, the worker mentions there is one worker stuck up in the bucket and couldn’t come down.
Unbelievable. Thankfully nobody was hurt.
Florida.. Florida.. Florida..
Social media had a field day of course!
