Venue: Bugembe stadium, viagra sale Jinja.

Two late goals from substitutes Milton Kalisa and Braize Nkolo ensured the much hyped Jinja derby ends in a one all-stalemate.

The mouth-watering clash lived up to the expectations with thousands of fans who were present taking turns to cheer up their sides.

The first half of the game was barren despite both sides putting up a strong challenge.

Mid maestro Peter Katumba was the first to test his former paymaster’s with a 10th minute strike that was parried away for a corner by Oringa Franco.

Bul FC retaliated later with several counter attacks but skipper, side effects Patrick Asiku was too slow to get to the end of Joshua Masene and Bruhan Matovu’s passes denying the visitors an early lead.

Joshua Masene was also overwhelmed by Sadolin’s strong defenders forcing coach Mutyaba to withdraw him just on the half hour mark, introducing Milton Kalisa to increase on attacking speed. However that could not stop the game from ending barren in the first half.

On resumption, the tune was rather not different from the earlier half with both teams intensifying attacks.

The Painters stepped up their attack immediately after a quick start, forcing Bul to concede two fruitless fouls just at the edge of the box.

Five minutes later in the second half, sub Blaize Nkoolo made a solo run in between sluggish Asuman Bajjampola and Sempira and stunned Oringa with another low shot – sending the stadium abuzz with the equalizer.

Milton Kalisa (1st goal, Bul):  It was a good game, we tried our best but they were also good. I feel motivated to score in a derby of this magnitude.

Blaize Nkolo (scored Sadolin’s goal): It was tough, but I enjoyed the fans celebration because it made it a special moment for me.

Coach Msafiri: They presented a tough challenge though that’s what you expect in such a derby game. I also thank the fans for maintaining order and coming in numbers. That means a lot to the team.

Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof. Ddumba Sentamu has announced the higher institution of learning is set to “install more CCTV cameras, symptoms deploy more security personnel, seek involve students in community policing as well as put in place adequate street lighting to improve the security situation” at the campus.

Prof. Ddumba was Tuesday addressing a press conference on the recent murder of David Ojok, website a former student of Makerere.

He was killed in act of mob justice by student residents of Nkrumah Hall a week ago.

The press conference was attended by the Dean of students, Vice Guild President and other student leaders.

The Vice Chancellor condemned acts of mob justice at the university and the continued unruly behavior by students.

He blasted the students’ habit of destroying people’s property, soliciting and robbing of money from the public during demonstrations.

“The police have taken up Ojok’s case and the university management will fully cooperate,” he added.

The VC said management is informed that some arrests have been made and that “the university appreciates the efforts of the police.”

Prof Ddumba said the campus is currently reviewing the rules and regulations governing students.

The reviewed rules will take effect next academic year after approval of the Council.

He noted that all students will have to “sign and live by” the new laws aimed at cracking down on students’ lawlessness.

Ddumba further reported that a perimeter wall fence would be constructed at the beginning of this financial year to improve the campus’ security.

“The process will be done in phases and could take two years,” he noted.

Students’ Dean, Mr Cyriano Kabagambe said owners of hostels have been put to task to tighten security as one of the ways of dealing with criminality and combating terrorism.

“Students should remain calm, cooperate and desist from making comments that will worsen the situation,” he added.

Thomas Kasiimo, the Head of security at Makerere, said checking for Identification alone does not serve as the essential security measure.

“In fact criminals most times can be smart enough to carry I.Ds. And rounding up every student residing in Nkrumah isn’t the best way either because investigations must be carried out in a systematic and professional way,” he added in response to the Ojok investigation.

Kasiimo said two people are currently in police custody, one being a student and the other a security guard who was on duty on the night of Ojok’s murder.

Ojok was at the campus to demand for payment from a student for computer-related services when he was mistaken for a thief and beaten to death.

The University’s Vice Guild President Phiona Nyamutoro condemned the incident, saying the Guild advocates for behavioural change.

“Makerere is not a training ground for hooligans and murderers. No individual should take another’s life. We ask government to help with the security at campus. Halls of residence should be given guards.”

She said the student leadership is to launch a campaign against mob justice and sensitization on behavioural change.
