“You can use it for shopping with MTN MoMoPay, paying bills like Yaka or water, buy airtime, voice and data bundles, sending money at zero fees using the MTN MoMo app or simply keeping it safe on your phone,” he said.

This is the 4th edition of the MoMoNyabo promotions that date back to 2018.
Thousands of lives have been transformed by the prizes they have won over the years.
The promotion did not happen last year as the country, like the rest of the world, was in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with the reopening of the economy, this year’s MoMoNyabo Waaka promises to be yet another exciting edition with over 20,000 customers and agents set to win cars and cash prizes.
The draws will be conducted live on NBS and Bukedde TV every Thursday at 8:30pm, with daily updates at the same time.
The exciting shows will be presented by renowned entertainer Richard Tuwangye alongside the vivacious Zahara Toto who is no stranger on the MoMoNyabo set.
