Museveni Puts Sick Hand to Test

Uganda Cranes stars Dennis Onyango and Ivan Bukenya were both in action down in South Africa as their teams Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs set a date in the final of the 2015 Telkom Knockout tournament after cruising through Supersport United and Orlando Pirates respectively.

Dennis Onyango had a fine field day helping Mamelodi Sundowns to edge his former club Supersport united in a enthralling 3-1 victory played at the Lucas Moripe stadium. Sundowns goals came from Leonardo Castro, http://cognac-ambassador.com/wp-admin/includes/ms-admin-filters.php   Thabo Nthethe and Bongani Zungu.

Bukenya’s Plight.
The defender had earlier been summoned to the Uganda Cranes squad for Togo duty but his fate will await medical assessment after he pulled out of the Soweto derby at half time due to injury.

“Bukenya has a fairly good performance in defence but is forced off at half-time due to injury. Inside ten minutes his long ball pass finds Lebese but the midfielder’s shot is saved by Siyabonga Mpontshane.

But he blots his copy-book by wasting two very good chances to score from Tshabalala’s free-kicks, recipe each time escaping his marker, only to miss badly,” a South African media, Kick-off described his game before the injury giving him a 60% efficiency rating.
With countrywide campaigns kicking off Monday morning, sildenafil http://chutneyrestaurant.ca/wp-admin/includes/update.php for his fifth time contest for the Uganda’s topmost seat, information pills http://codesiconsulting.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/date.php incumbent President Yoweri Museveni needed to be certain that he was entirely fit, sales http://cdcsmiles.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-post-comments-list-table.php both logistically and bodily.

So he paid a visit to the Butyaba Special Force Training Base on Saturday evening and put his recuperating right hand to a test. On a shooting range.

He was here to preside over the passing of soldiers who successfully completed a 15-month Special Forces training qualification course.

President Museveni last month, amidst growing concerns from Ugandans, opened up on his sickly finger which was abnormally bandaged.

He revealed while on a trip to the United States, that he had accidentally hit it on his car door, breaking a few bones, which called for consistent bandaging.

Yesterday he tried out the sick hand on the trigger of his favorite AK 47, and the results were not so bad, at least according to several pictures that State House shared on Sunday evening.

“Yesterday while passing out Commandos of SFC at Butyaba, I got to test my right hand which was sick. I am ready!,” bragged his twitter account.

But ready for what exactly?; some of his opponents would ask.

People in the circles of the president reckon that he rarely brandishes the deadly riffle for the cameras, except if he has an important message to send out.

Recently while addressing a rally at Kololo Independence Grounds, Museveni strongly cautioned members of the opposition seeking to cause havoc in the ongoing electoral season, that these would be “crashed completely.”

The shooting range pictures come less than a week after the leading opposition front leader Col Dr Kizza Besigye termed his coming campaign as a “defiant” one.
