President Museveni has donated a brand new 40-seater bus to newly promoted Uganda Premier League side Kitara Football Club.
The Hoima-based side sealed promotion to the 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League following a narrow 1-0 victory over Kiboga Young (formerly Mbale Heroes) in the 2020 FUFA Big League playoffs final played at the Technical centre in Njeru last month.
Ms. Lucy Nakyobe Mbonye, the state house financial controller on behalf of the President handed over the bus with number plate UBH 526T to the club president Godfrey Bamwenda and CEO Joshua Atugonza.
The bus is a fulfillment of a pledge made by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni last year on his visit to Bunyoro where the issue was highlighted by NRM candidate Harriet Businge Mugenyi in Kigorobya and Buseruka at Booma grounds.
Kitara is one of the three sides to have been promoted from the Fufa Big League last season. The other two are; Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA) FC and army side Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF) FC.
The 2020/21 Uganda Premier League season is anticipated to kick off on December 3rd 2020 with fixtures to be released in due course.
