Katende Malibu Bows out of Fufa

Katende Malibu is out of FUFA

A mobile phone thief, this over the weekend survived being lynched by an angry mob that pursued him after he snatched a brand new phone from a young lady at Equatorial Mall in Kampala.

The middle aged man took advantage of the lady who was checking out her new handset after purchasing it from one of the shops at the downtown mall.


Eyewitnesses say the goon snatched the phone before running towards former Kiseka Market but was intercepted by a mob that had heard his victim make an alarm.

The mob showered the thief with punches and kicks after retrieving the phone and handing it back to the young lady.


Some of the onlookers who spoke to this website stated that the thief is one, order Yusuf; a member of a notorious gang stationed behind Emrald Hotel, known to snatch gadgets from passengers travelling in taxis. The  mob later left him to go after stern warnings.
Former Uganda Cranes media officer, order Fred ‘Malibu’ Katende has thanked the Uganda Cranes, media and FUFA for the co-operation they offered him during his tenure.

“It has been a pleasure working with Cranes, FUFA, the fans and every football stakeholder in the country and giving me chance to such a job,” he wrote on one of his social media platforms.

However, the former media officer didn’t sound happy over his removal from the post during what he described as ‘FUFA changes’.

He noted: “As you are all aware, my responsibility and term of service as Cranes media officer ended following last Week’s FUFA changes.”
