URA FC vs Sadolin Paints FC

Venue: Mekhta Stadium, stomach Lugazi.

Entrance: Vip; 5000 Ordinary; 3000.

Coach Alex Isabirye will lead his charges, healing URA FC, about it against a renascent Sadolin Paints Fc. URA FC has been bundled out of two competitions in the space of one month; CAF confederation cup (by Orlando Pirates) and the Uganda cup (by KCCA FC).

The Uganda cup defending champions are far 14 points below the top spot and with that in mind the league title might be far from their reach. Thus Coach Alex will work at least to finish in the top pack by winning as many games considering he dropped 2 points against second placed SC Villa last time out.

Sadolin has won their last two away games against bigwigs; KCCA FC and Express, both by a 2-1 margin while URA  remain unbeaten at home, failing to win only two of their last Seven league games. No goal was registered in their reverse fixture at Kakindu, the only time the two have previously met.

Coach Msafiri believes the team is on course to achieve this year’s target of not going down.

“The boys are in good shape, there is no pressure but we want to finish in the top ten.” – Coach Msafiri.

While addressing the press after a closed meeting with Democratic Party (DP) top leaders at the headquarters at City House, more about the former Intelligence coordinator and National Coordinator Platform to Rescue Uganda (PRU), medicine Gen. David Sejusa has highlighted the need to iron out several issues before Ugandans can involve themselves in the 2016 general elections.

Sejusa told the press that it is irrelevant to participate in an election whose winner has already been determined more than two years ago.

“Ugandans must know that elections are not won on the elections day but years before. Where do you think this whole National IDs issue came from? This election has been finished as we speak,” Sejusa observed.

He revealed that through research he conducted together with the other members, h e found that some cards issued, which will be used in the election are not detected by the machines. This he claimed is to ensure that some targeted sections of the population are blocked from voting.

“On top of that, why is government insisting on using a system that has severally been challenged as flawed? We know that a number of LC members during validation were not locals, and also numerous refuges have been issued with cards.

“If we continue in an election that is already fraudulent, we are simply playing games. But also if we choose to boycott it, then we must determine to block it from happening.”

Sejusa said that the options must be clearly thought, and urged that the opposition should not rush involve in the elections without the desired election reforms.

Asked if he is willing to stand as a joint opposition candidate in case he is given the mandate, Sejusa noted that he can’t aspire to be a candidate in an election that should not take place.

“If the issues of electoral reforms are answered then anybody in Uganda can stand and win since the rules will be favorable.”

On the same note, Ssejusa called on Ugandans to compel president Museveni and the ruling NRM party to abide by the country’s constitution and accept not to participate in the coming election.

“Despite Museveni’s nomination by his party as the sole candidate, his participation in the presidential race is illegal since his age will have exceeded the constitutional 75 mid next term; beyond which it unlawful for anyone to be president of the Republic of Uganda.”

He added, “We shall hold the NRM to account and get them to follow the constitution; it is just a party and its owners are fresh and blood like us.”
