Kick boxing ace Moses Golola wants parliament to set aside a monthly stipend for outstanding sportsmen in recognition of their efforts in promoting the country.
“We want parliament to put aside something in honor of those who have duly represented and promoted the country as far as sports is concerned,” said Golola on Tuesday during a courtesy call on the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanya.
Speaking from personal experience, Golola says due to his talent in the ring he has become a national treasure but it hurts to see fellow sportsmen struggling.
“In Arua they love me so much; Karamoja they call me asking when I am coming to their area. Everywhere even people on the shores”, he says.
As such he called for a nationwide effort in developing kick boxing which he says has potential of directly and indirectly creating a source of employment for those involved.
Golola also said focus must now turn to establishing boxing academies which will groom youngsters to become the next champions.
Golola’s visit followed his triumph in a K1 world kick boxing federation (WKF) fight with Thailand based Ugandan Umar Semata this month.
With Semata out of the way, he now plans to hold a barbeque party at Serena hotel on 27th of this month of which Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanya will be chief guest.
