Ugandan power lifter Roy Mubiru is living his dream. The US-based powerlifter who has been raising the Ugandan flag high across the globe is set to compete in the World Power Lifting  Association championship taking place this May in Ukraine.

Mubiru who has previously been bankrolled by South Africa based Ugandan socialite Cameroon Gitawo could not hide his excitement after he received a big boost towards preparations for the world championship recently.

President Museveni last week contributed $8,000 (about shs 30M) towards Mubiru’s preparations. This happened while the President attended the Kiboga district youth mindset change workshop where Mubiru presented him with a medal he won at the annual Bay State Open Championships last year, on his way to qualification for the world championship.

In an interview with local media, Mubiru expressed gratitude for the recognition of his talent and revealed that meeting the president is a dream come true for him.  “I have been dreaming about meeting the President and getting recognised for my talent since I started my powerlifting career in 2008,” he noted.

He further revealed that he would not have reached this milestone if it was not for his funder Cameroon Gitawo who came to his rescue in the past. “If I had not met Gitawo to invest in my career, I wouldn’t have come this far. Meeting the President doesn’t come lightly because if I wasn’t a champion, I wouldn’t have met the President but all thanks to Gitawo.” He added.

Gitawo sponsored Mubiru during the RM Power lifting Championship & Cross Fit’ in April 2018.

Mubiru is the first Ugandan powerlifter to ever qualify for the World Powerlifting Championships.

After being unfollowed by the President or rather his administrator, Jose Chameleone has not taken Twitter lightly. The singer has done some cleaning up and has been left with only 108 accounts to follow and only two of those are Ugandan artistes.

It is not rocket science that Chameleone only decides to follow his two brothers Pallaso and Radio&Weasel, had it been any others maybe we would be wondering the criteria he used.

Chameleone is one of the most followed Ugandan artistes on Twitter and not following you may not go so well with you as an artiste.

Rwandans ask Salvado To Apologize for Genocide Joke

Published

on

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
