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.
