Reigning league champions Vipers Sports Club moved a step up the log opening the gap with two points from their closest rival KCCA FC after a narrow 1-0 win over Bright Stars.

The visitors came with a defensive mindset, this site shop http://closdescapucins.fr/wp-includes/post-template.php opting to play a more physical and coarse game often aiming at taming Cranes Star Miya Farouk.

Just three minutes to the half hour, troche http://chipinhead.com/wp-includes/rss-functions.php Saddam Juma picked up possesion from the midfield area driving on and released William Wadri. The former KCCA FC star set up Erisa Sekisambu with a brilliant acute low shot for the lone strike.

The rest of the game was centered between the Vipers attack and Mathias Kigonya who was excellent in maintaining a respectable score sheet.  Vipers and Cranes custodian, http://damadetrefla.com/wp-includes/class-wp-text-diff-renderer-table.php James Alitho was pulled off for Isma Watenga after sustaining a deep cut on the head after colliding with Joshua Kanakulya in the 68th minute.

Vipers now moves top with 20 points from eight games.

Elsewhere in Kavumba, Police and Prisons leveled strength after Maroons Fc forcing a draw in a four-goal thriller. Erias Lubambula and Simon Peter Senyonjo netted for Police while Denis Rukundo grabbed a second half double from the spot.

Interim head coach Kefa Kisala started his ‘new tenure’ at URA with a brilliant 2-1 win over JMC Hippos in his maiden return to Kakindu since his unceremonious departure from BUL FC. Elkanah Nkugwa and Robert Ssentongo scored for the tax collectors.

Thousands of supporters have lined the streets of Kampala to have a glimpse of the man who has thrice lost to President Museveni but is determined to give another try.

Holding placards of “Wesige Besigye”, http://cosmeticscop.com/wp-admin/includes/class-language-pack-upgrader.php “Besigye is Our Saviour” and waving tree branches, the supporters sang songs praising Besigye as the nation’s liberator.

While many had ruled out the possibility of Besigye posing a serious challenge to Museveni, the Rukungiri-born politician has reminded supporters that Nigerian President Buhari emerged victorious on the 4th attempt.

Besigye is expected at the Presidential Nomination Centre at Mandela National Stadium at 11:00am.

However, the mammoth crowds accompanying him could see the opposition ironman arrive late for the nomination ceremony.

Ahead of today’s much—anticipated rally at Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium, Besigye will need to do more to pull bigger crowds than Hon Amama Mbabazi to cement his position as the strongest opposition candidate in the country.

The former Prime Minister managed to pull a sizeable number of supporters from the densely populated downtown part of Kampala but FDC officials say they will pull around 50,000 supporters.

While Mbabazi was accompanied by several DP MPs who mobilised heavily for yesterday’s rally, Besigye seems more prepared to fire up the city.
