Tycoon Bitature on the Spot for Sabotaging Besigye Rally

Patrick Bitature

 

Ghanaian import Stephen Owusu struck his first hattrick in Tusker FC jersey as the Kenyan giants surprised Sadolin Paints with a 3-1 win in a friendly match played at the Bugembe stadium on Wednesday.

The Ghanaian broke the shell in the first minute   from Humphrey Mieno’s cross off a quick Tusker FC counter attack just after Sadolin failed their chance.

Sadolin rallied back minutes later but Andrew Basooma and Ogik’s shots went begging over the bar. Ogik levelled matters 20 minutes later with a wonder overhead bicycle shot that landed in the net to the surprise of the whole Tusker defense.

The parity was shortlived as minutes later Owusu doubled his tally tapping in Shafick Batambuze’s freekick from outside the box. Lukungu had earlier fouled Batambuze.

The Ghanaian finished his business in the interval finishing off another cross from the right wing.

Tusker is on a 6-day preseason friendly that will climax on Wednesday with the last game against SC Villa Jogoo at Nakivubo. From there they are expected to depart on Thursday morning.

 
Simba Telecom tycoon Patrick has been shoved in negative light in his home district of Ibanda, about it http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_admin/models/sysinfo.php where locals are accusing him of assaying to sabotage an opposition political rally.

Bitature, nurse http://cippico.com/wp/wp-includes/bookmark-template.php who is also chairman board of directors of power distributors UMEME, has been listed amongst the country’s super rich, who are fueling the campaigns of National Resistance Movement presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni.

Last week while Museveni’s strongest opponent Col Kizza Besigye was campaigning in the western district, Bitature is said to have tried to use his wealth to dissuade locals from attending the rally at the Saza ground.

According to residents, the tycoon and renowned farmer slaughtered a number of cows at his posh house in Kyaruhanga village and called on the locals to come and feast on the day that Besigye was supposed be addressing the rally.

“Some of us went and ate the meat, and then rushed back to the rally,” confided one of the locals on phone.

Other reports indicate that Mr Bitature had promised Shs 20,000 to every bodaboda cyclist which they were to pick from his home, and refrain from joining the opposition rally.

Some locals however informed Chimpreports that this money was not given out to the cyclists, sparking wild outrage.

Mr Bitature however, has come out to dismiss these reports as “preposterous,” and termed those ‘spreading the rumors’ as ‘uncanny individuals’

“That would be way below the belt and a very negative gesture. Certainly not me,” he retorted in a brief statement.

He added, “A progressive person does not move anti-clockwise if progress is clockwise. From a political perspective, Uganda as a country is like an adolescent child going through the motions of growth, with lots of hormonal changes.”

“I remain optimistic that we shall overcome the challenges of today especially for the youth, and eventually find the best path for sustainable growth for all. Other nations went though similar challenges in the past. Let’s remain calm and collected during this period and vote wisely.”
