I Can’t Pay for What I don’t Know — Mbabazi

NRM presidential hopeful and former Prime Minister John Patrick Amama Mbabazi has said that he cannot pay for something that he doesn’t know.


“I believe that before you pay for something, you must know what it is you are paying for,” Mbabazi said today morning.

He made the remarks while speaking to the NRM Electoral Commission Tanga Odoi about the nomination process.

Odoi told Mbabazi that Central Executive Committee would today sit and review the rules and regulations governing the internal elections and issue new guidelines.

This comes after the former NRM secretary general Amama Mbabazi said that charging aspirants nomination fees is illegal.

However, the NRM EC Chairman Tanga Odoi said that the Constitution of NRM gives EC powers to set guidelines that must be approved by CEC. We did so, and they were approved by CEC.
