Umeme donated the huge sum of cash to the Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC) at their offices in Kololo, Kampala.

The event was presided over by the Minister of State for Sports, Hon. Charles Bakabulindi who was very excited by Umeme’s contribution.

Umeme Managing Director Charles Chapman handed over the Shs25m cheque to acting UOC President William Blick.

On that day, Education and Sports State minister Charles Bakkabulindi hailed Umeme and urged other corporate organization to emulate it.

“This is indeed a remarkable gesture that makes Umeme stand out as a body committed to its social responsibilities,” said Bakabulindi.

The support enabled the team to travel at a time when most corporate companies shunned Uganda’s athletes.

But Kiprotich’s surprise performance at the Olympics on Saturday where he won gold has witnessed top city companies promising large sums of money to the Ugandan star.

“We applaud the entire team for their effort and especially Kiprotich who made Uganda proud, 40 years down the road, by bringing back home the much coveted gold medal,” Umeme said in a statement.

“We are excited that one of the team members brought back home the much coveted gold medal.”
