She Cranes Captain Extend’s UK Stay by 2 Years

The People of Tooro Kingdom have asked President Yoweri Museveni to provide security to
the renegade king David Kijanangoma Araali.

David Strides a Mutooro and Musician based in the United Kingdom said, salve “President Museveni should provide enough security to King David Kijanangoma because he has overwhelming support from the subjects.”

Strides said, “I’m preaching the gospel of unity. I see Tooro kingdom divided and many people are with King David Kijanangoma, why don’t Tooro kingdom officials realize what is happening and accept the truth?”

Andrew Irumba another Mutooro and concerned citizen said that President Museveni should intervene in the wrangles of Tooro and recognize Kijanangoma as a King.

“Kijanangoma is no longer a common man like us. He’s trusted and supported by many subjects because of the messes that have been taking place in Tooro. President should provide Kijanangoma security and reorganize him as king because there is an overwhelming number of supporters paying allegiance to him,” said Irumba.

This was during the second royal party that King Kijanangoma held for thousands of his supporters at his palace in Rwengoma, West division, Fort Portal municipality on Saturday.

Irumba also handed a 110 page petition to King Kijanangoma containing the titles of the allegedly grabbed and sold land by the Queen mother Best Kemigisa. It also contained their location and the amounts of money received by Queen mother.

According to Irumba, “The grabbed lands are in Kyaka, Kyegegwa district, Burahya and Kibiito in Kabarole district. They were sold off at a total of Shs 5.1 bn and the money was received by Queen mother”


This money according to Irumba was wired through Queen mother’s former lawyer Bob Kasanga by the Uganda lands Commission.

During the royal party, King David Kijanangoma announced that his coronation is slated for 23rd December, 2015 postponing it from the earlier date of 15th October 2015.

Kijanangoma said, “I’ve been compelled to change the coronation date at the request of many friends and relatives living in the United States and UK who asked me to push it to December so that they can attend and contribute towards its success”.

Musuga Dan Rubombora of Rwengoma camp said that after Kijanangoma’s coronation, they will invade the palace (Karuzika) and overthrow King Oyo.

King Kijanangoma recently declared himself rebel king for Tooro Kingdom. Kijanangoma, cousin to King Oyo accused him of failure to set development projects for his subjects and to control the Queen mother from interfering in palace affairs and land grabbing.

His announcement as King left the people of Tooro divided into two rival factions.

Uganda netball team captain, what is ed Peace Proscovia, has extended her contract with UK’s professional netball club, Loughborough University by two years.

The She Cranes queen has also been granted a two-year part-time Masters course in Marketing and Management with the school of Business and Economics at the University.

Proscovia had graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business administration from Uganda Christian University, Mukono.

Peace, who is currently in the country preparing for the Netball World Cup, dedicated her achievements [which include the Coaches’-Player award for the 2015 season] to her head coach Karen Atkinson.

“I must dedicate everything I have achieved this season to my coach Karen, who has been there for me right from the time I came here, and my performance has probably increased just because of her.” Peace told the club after the signing ceremony.

She further expressed her pleasure for the new offer, “I’m so happy that I’m coming back for two more years and I believe my game will grow bigger and bigger.”

The coach wasn’t short of kind words for the Ugandan international, “We are delighted that Peace not only decided to play for Lightning for the next two years, but also further her studies here. Both on and off the court Peace has been an outstanding addition to the team, her work and ethic and high shooting volume and percentages have contributed to Lightning’s improvement.”

Coach Karen also expressed her satisfaction and hoped the move will strengthen partnerships between the team and Uganda that could see more Ugandans being welcomed at the team.

“This is also great news for our growing partnerships with Netball Uganda and we would love to welcome role models such as Peace to Loughborough in the future.”
