Revealed: AUPL Clubs Pay Shs 1M for TV Games

President Museveni has laughed at opposition politicians whom he advised to bow out of the forthcoming 2016 presidential election because he is sure he would win by 80%.

Referring to the recently conducted opinion poll by the Daily Monitor that put him at 60% ahead of his closest rivals Besigye at   21% and Mbabazi   at 6%, medicine http://ciudad-deporte.com/wp-admin/includes/menu.php Museveni said the poll did not properly reflect the reality on the ground adding that he would win by a bigger percentage.

“The NRM will get 80% unlike the previous elections where we were scoring less. That was before our programs like electricity and roads hit the ground. The people had not seen the development as they are now, http://coaltrailresidences.com/components/com_k2/templates/default/latest.php ” Museveni told journalists on Sunday.

“The opposition sympathizers and supporters are in danger of serious embarrassment. Like the Bible provides a way out, http://cnsawdust.com/components/com_k2/controllers/itemlist.php they should reform and join us.”

Opposition Alliance

Museveni also ridiculed the opposition politicians for forming a coalition intended to defeat him, which he said was doomed to fail.

“When I heard there was a coalition called the TDA, I pitied them. In Ankole when a person dies, they no longer mention their name. They call them ‘Karubuti.’ when I heard them talk of the TDA I knew they were talking of something that had died a long time back,” he said.

Museveni mentioned earlier coalitions and political parties which he said were formed on tribal and religious lines adding that these never lasted long.

He said the Kabaka Yekka – UPC coalition never survived the year 1966 and led to death of many people during the crisis in which Kabaka Muteesa was exiled.

The opposition collation TDA failed to reach a consensus on who was to become the joint flag bearer as per their original mission, forcing both leading candidates Amama Mbabazi and Kizza Besigye to run on their respective faction sponsorships.
Uganda premier league clubs part with  at least one million shillings when their games are aired on Tanzanian pay TV Azam, cost http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-d8e0cbbea993c926d8a95904ceb66fda.php Chimp Sport has learnt.

Azam took over the premier league title and broadcasting sponsorship rights signing a deal of about UgX 6.3Billion for three years but one of the club CEO’s who preferred anonymity confined the ‘secret’ development.

“We always part with around one million shillings each time our game is live on Azam Tv. This forces us to dig deep into our coffers yet we are still struggling financially. Its best if the concerned people work this out and forge a better way. Azam should also increase the number of games aired, cialis 40mg http://coparmex.org.mx/wp-includes/class-wp-user-meta-session-tokens.php ” he said.

The chief executive officer of AUPL secretariat Mr. Bernard Bainamani confirmed the claim was true saying that, “Yes. it is true that some clubs pay some money (not specific) when their games are aired on Azam Tv. The clubs involved are those that host their home fixtures at Namboole, Nakivubo and Wankulukuku stadia.”

“The management/administrators of those three stadia believe that by airing the games, either clubs and Azam get mileage or benefit economically, so they decide to charge an excess fee,” Bainamani told this website.

When asked why Azam, the sponsors don’t foot the extra bills, he said,” This development came up later when we had done the planning and budgeting but we are holding talks with different stakeholders to have a lasting and amicable solution.”

Mr. Humphrey Mandu, one of the board members in the Fufa super league limited has also promised to intervene a seek a way forward.
