Mbabazi Says He Is Unopposed In NRM
Former prime minister Amama Mbabazi has said he is running unopposed for the NRM presidential flag bearer since nobody else has so far declared interest and said he hopes to persuade President Museveni not to stand against him for 2016 elections.
Mbabazi was speaking in an interview with BBC on Thursday. Mr Mbabazi also scoffed at President Museveni for taking credit for all the NRM achievements and blaming all failures on others.
When the host Alan Kasujja asked whether President Museveni would not be against Mbabazi’s bid against him for the presidency, the former prime minister said he did not know whether the President was interested in standing in 2016 elections.
“Well, I don’t know. He didn’t tell me that he wanted to run and actually on the other hand, I told him that I was so far unopposed. He has not declared his intention and I hope I can persuade him to maintain that, not to declare,” Mr Mbabazi told BBC.
