Watongola Locked Out Of NRM Primaries

By Benjamin Jumbe

Former Kamuli Municipality MP Hajat Rehema Watongola may not be able to contest in the forthcoming party primaries for the same seat.

This is according to legal opinion presented by the party lawyers to the NRM Electoral Commission.

The party’s electoral head Dr.Tanga Odoi says the legal opinion states that Hajat Watongola is not eligible to contest again unless she presents verified copies of her O level certificate by UNEB

Watongola was among the first people who expressed interest yesterday and was set to pick nomination forms today after presenting her certified academic papers.

The party has set 6th-7th March 2017 as dates for nomination in Kamuli Municipality with primaries scheduled for 20th March 2017.

The bi election is set for April 12th.
