“It’s important to skill up continental sports broadcasting talent.

Naicker was speaking at a SuperSport’s Media Roundtable at the MultiChoice Content Showcase at The OutriggerHotel & Resort on the same day SuperSport announced that the 11th edition of the All Africa Games will be broadcast live on SuperSport 9, starting with the opening ceremony on Friday evening.

Naicker spoke to a contingent of African media at a media roundtable discussion facilitated by SuperSport anchor Carol Tshabalala which was also graced by special guest Anthony Baffoe, a former Ghana International footballer and FIFA and CAF General Co-ordinator.

As the biggest contributor in Africa investment in continental sport, he said SuperSport has yielded impressive results.

“In 2006 we flew a crew of 26 people to Abudja to broadcast a football game. Today, we’re proud to say that we have 100% local crews operating our facilities in Nigeria and Ghana,” he said.

He added that SuperSport’s contribution has extended beyond broadcasting, into increasing levels of professionalism in leagues across the continent.

Murray cited the broadcaster’s involvement in local football leagues as a prime example of the way sport has grown on the continent. “We started working with the Nigerian Premier League in 2006 and it’s gone from strength to strength, we’ve been partners with the Kenyan Premier League since 2008 and the Ghanaian League since 2012. Not one Kenyan league game had been broadcast on television for a decade before we partnered with them, and look at how the league is thriving.”

SuperSport recently concluded a deal with the Zambian League which will see league and cup competitions continue to air on SuperSport for the next 5 years.

and will rally all my support behind him.

FDC President Rtd Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu has conceded defeat in the Wednesday poll that saw his archrival Dr Kizza Besigye elected as the party’s flag-bearer for the 2016 presidential elections.

“I have lost, order http://davepallone.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/acceptance.php ” admitted the former army commander.

“But FDC has won. It was my intention all along to prove to the entire world that we can offer democracy to Ugandans.”

Besigye polled 718 votes against Muntu’s 289 in an electrifying election that saw the former’s supporters turn Namboole Stadium, and http://clintonhouse.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/verification-tools.php where the delegates conference took place, into a dancing field.

Led by FDC Secretary for Mobilisation, Ingrid Turinawe, Besigye’s supporters pulled rare strokes till they could dance no more.

Hundreds of the delegates later walked to neighbouring bars in Kireka for drinks till the wee hours.

As soon as FDC Electoral Commission boss Dan Mugarura declared Besigye victorious, Muntu abandoned his chair to embrace his rival.

I have been defeated

Muntu would later make a moving speech, admitting defeat.

“Today has been our 60th day of campaigns. We all sold our plans and today you have taken a decision to accept Col Besigye, a decision that I respect,” said Muntu as FDC delegates welcomed the speech with a standing ovation.

“As we speak, FDC is now a united party despite the challenges that we went through after the recent party elections. We portrayed that we have the capacity to manage party wrangles.”

He added: “Col Besigye thanks for coming back and winning; I respect the choice of delegates. I don’t fight for victory but I fight for a cause and principles.”

Muntu vowed to “swing all the party infrastructure behind you (Besigye) and I know we shall succeed. It’s my pleasure today to concede defeat to Col Besigye; I respect him and will rally all my support behind him.”

The former army chief who fell out with Museveni in the late 1990s said he did not participate in the armed struggle that toppled the regimes of Milton Obote and military junta in the 1980s to get positions but “I fight for freedom, democracy and peoples’ rights.”

A strong believer in God, Muntu said he does not intend to “fall off, I know my purpose by the grace of God, one time will be achieved.”

In his parting shot, Muntu warned Besigye against sending different signals on the strategy of removing President Museveni from power.

He said a meeting of the top party leadership should be held to harmonise the different positions.

Muntu vowed not to give the struggle to change the current government, saying, “I am a long distance runner.”
