Fred Nkata scored an own goal to gift SC Villa a much needed three points over Kira Young in a Uganda Premier league match played at Namboole on Tuesday evening.

The former Villa player struck his own net and thus plunged his team into the relegation zone with only two games to left.

The win was however not enough to push Villa on top of the league because the FUFA Disciplinary Committee [FDC] deducted the Nakivuubo outfit two points after overturning the ruling which the UPL board had awarded those points from the match between URA and Villa at Lugazi..

FDC reinstated the earlier result of 1-1. The move now leaves Vipers SC on top with 63 points, see one ahead of SC Villa with both teams facing each other on Friday at Nakivuubo.

Elsewhere, site two goals from Musa Nakibinge and Sulaiman Majanjalo were not enough to prevent Rwenshama from relegation as they hosted Soana Fc in Nakivuubo.

The league debutants were hit 3-2 with goals from Rashid Kyambadde, Edmond Kakembo and Allan Kayiwa making the task mathematically impossible. Soana got relief after rising above the relegation pack, though on a better goal difference over Kira Young.

Moses Ndawula and Mike Serumaga scored in both halves against fellow rookies, Sadolin Paints FC to ensure Lweza FC rise into safety.

The Wankulukuku side has accumulated33 points from 28 fixtures and mathematically needs two points from the last two remaining games to avoid the chop. In the last match, URA FC registered a goal less draw away to already relegated Entebbe FC.

Brigadier Peter Elwelu  the second division Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) has said that armed militia in the Democratic Republic of Congo is abducting people for ransom along the Ishasha- Rutchuru -Gomastretch and Bunagana – Goma road  which has disrupted the volume of trade and movement of personnel between Uganda and DRC.

Elwelu made the remarks on Monday while speaking at the bilateral security meeting held in Rwanda’s Northern District of Musanze, viagra sale about 25 Km from the Uganda – Rwanda border  while meeting his Rwandan counterpart Brig Gen Emmy Ruvusha 2nd Infantry Division Commanders  Rwanda Defence Forces (RDF)

Brig  Elwel said despite the recent FARDC ‘Ops Sokola’ military success against ADF, its conclusive defeat has remained elusive as now ADF has broken into smaller units and retreated to remote and rural enclaves of Eastern DRC, exploiting entrenched and ever changing clan-based competition among the armed militia groups.

The rebels he said have continued to carry out assassinations and terrorist attacks in urban areas of Uganda including in the capital Kampala.

“Uganda continues to face challenges across our border with DRC due to the presence of ADF terrorists and negative armed groups,” he said.

“The instability in Eastern DRC continues to favor the existence of negative armed groups whose activities not only threaten the stability of the regional countries but impact on Uganda’s National Security and the region.”

He said that ADF is still significant and has continued to build its capacity through covert recruitment, training, and re-arming, all aimed at destabilizing the region and Uganda in particular.

Elweru told his Rwandan counterpart Brig Gen Ruvusha, that the critical breakthrough in the fight against the negative groups would therefore, be achieved not by a force of a single nation but rather regional efforts.

Elwelu added not much progress was made on the disarmament process of FDLR, who are also regrouping and mobilizing to continue their operations against civilians in Eastern DRC.

“As a result, Uganda continues to contend with the spillover effects in terms of a large influx of refugees and other security related issues,” he noted.

“In fact Rwandese youths who genuinely move to Uganda in search for jobs especially in the districts of Mubende, Kibaale and Kyegegwa have become vulnerable to recruitment by agents of negative forces in Eastern DRC.”

The meeting was also attended by the two countries’ Defence Attachés; Col Octavus Butuuro (Uganda) and Lt Col James Burabyo (Rwanda), Brigade, Battalion Commanders and Intelligence Officers from both Divisions.
