Vipers Sports Club take on Hima Football Club in pre-season friendly

Azam Uganda Premier League side, Vipers Sports Club survived an early scare and had to dig deep to overcome a resilient Hima Football Club in the second game of their western Uganda tour played on Saturday in Kasese.

The 2010 and 2015 league champions fell behind early on to a David Ninsiima penalty after Yayo Lutimba was judged to have handled the ball in the area.

The Hima Cement sponsored side responded just before half time via a Tony Odur header and completed the comeback through two-quick fire goals from right back, Ashraf Mandela and Congolese import Mousa Mbayi in the final 15 minutes.

Despite insisting that it was just a friendly match, Coach Jorge Da Costa fielded a strong side that was captained by Mike Sserumaga.

The win in Kasese comes on the heels of a 1-1 draw against newly promoted Uganda Premier League side, Mbarara City.

“I am happy with the performance and the way we responded. The team is adapting to the new playing styles and is good preparation for the upcoming season,” Da Costa said.

Despite Hima FC having created descent chances, Vipers dominated the game in all aspects. New signing Tadeo Lwanga and Nkuubi Brian patrolled the midfield well while the free flowing passes excited the locals.

Vipers is using the friendly games as part of its grand plan to recruit fans from all regions of Uganda. The team has opened up offices in all regions of the country for this reason.

As part of its tour in Kasese, Vipers also donated sports equipment to Hima Primary School.

Dusman Okee Clutching at Straws as the FMU Presidential Race Heats Up

Dusman Okee

By Our Reporter

Dusman Okee appears a desperate man clutching at straws as the race for the next Federation of Motorsport Clubs of Uganda (FMU) president continues to heat up with Election Day drawing closer.

The incumbent has been accused of using unbecoming language after allegedly using racial slurs and epithets against Ugandans of Asian descent, who are among the front runners for the presidential seat.

This came to light when a motorsport enthusiast exposed Okee on the Uganda Rally News page. “The shocker came in on Tuesday this week, as the incumbent in his bid to tighten up his electorate, made call to one of the club presidents seeking for his vote using a race card tool, saying ‘OMUZANNYO MUSAZEEWO OGUWA ABAYINDI’!” The post read.

In his further efforts to keep a firm grip on FMU presidency, he has allegedly been working the phones in order to dun everyone associated to the federation for cash contributions.

Our snoop has revealed that Okee went on to further hound his victims at their homes and places of leisure after they deliberately ignored his calls in his quest to seek financial support face to face.

According to our sources, he has continuously tried to contact Rajiv Ruparelia who has ignored all his calls in order not to be attached to the forth coming elections.

That’s when he called Ambrose Byona, a rally driver and entrepreneur. Byona also ignored his calls only which prompted him to confront the later at Panamera where his pleas also fell on deaf ears.

Sure, he may argue that the money he’s collecting is to ensure that all delegates are facilitated to the Annual General Meeting (AGM). And that such facilitation is normal. However, why one would need such extreme amounts of money to facilitate their election re-campaign if they’ve been outstanding at their job.

Okee who joined office in 2016 is seeking re-election as his four-year tenure comes to an end. For the hotly contested presidential seat, Okee will square off with former rally ace Ruparelia Dipu, former FUFA delegate Geoffrey Nsamba, a city lawyer, and former president, Jack Wavamunno who is seeking a fourth term.

The election is scheduled to take place on February 1, 2020 at FMU offices.

Preparations are in high gear for the 2-day “Running out of Trees” relay from Kampala to Gulu.

The relay that will have 33 high profile and diverse runners run 10 kilometers each, is set to take place on Feb 7th and 8th February 2020. Flag off will be at Parliament.

The “Running out of Trees Campaign” spearheaded by Uganda Breweries Limited in partnership with Ministry of Water and Environment, was launched in October 2019.

The campaign seeks to rally Corporate Companies to come together and respond to the growing concern of deforestation in the country.

So far, a number of companies have come on board to support the campaign including Liberty Assurance which recently handed over a cheque of UGX 5,000,000 to UBL towards the run. Other companies include TOTAL Uganda and Stanbic Uganda among others.

The objective of this run is to rally every Ugandan to embrace April 25, 2020, the national day of tree planting on which 40million people in Uganda will be expected to plant and grow at least one tree.
