Uganda Cranes Tame Botswana Zebras

“There has been allegations that I am a mole but I want to assure you that I am not a mole and I will never be, cheap ” Nandala emphasized.

“As a matter of fact I cannot sleep in two houses at the same time; there is nothing am looking for the other side, not money, not a house, not a car,” He added.

Nandala promised to work for the good of the party without necessarily using the party reasons and ensure that effective mobilization is done from national to village level.

“I am ready together with the secretariat to traverse the entire country to drum for support for all elective positions. At this time I will also ask the office of the president from which I will be consulting to join us in this campaign to mobilize masses.

“I want to ask for forgiveness from all those that I have wronged and I forgive all my tormentors and pledge to work with each and everybody for the good of the party and making Uganda a better place for all its citizens.”


For effective mobilization, the new secretary general promised to give mobile phones to all district secretaries.

Saturday 13th 2015

Uganda 2-0 Botswana

Geoffrey Massa and Brian Umony scored two goals to give Uganda a deserved 2-0 win against The Zebras of Botswana in an Afcon 2017 Qualifiers Group D opening match.

The Zebras proved good and tactical defensively in the entire first half with long time keeper Kabelo pulling spectacular saves leading the game to a barren first half.

On resumption, coach Micho pulled of Godfrey Walusimbi for a more aggressive Robert Ssentongo. The change proved its worth just ten minutes later after Luwagga Kizito crossed from the right wing, order for Massa’s opener. Kizito had earlier on taken a poor free kick but collected the rebound and built up on the goal.

Five minutes after the hour mark, Khalid Aucho transited the ball from Cranes half to Botswana’s exchanging passes with Luwagga before Brian Umony got at the end of the pass with a clinical tap in to double the lead.

The second goal scorer was then pulled off for Kobs danger man Yunus Ssentamu. The substitute wasted a clear chance to open his national account from a Luwagga pass with just ten to go.
