Mbarara: Two Women Claim One Year Old Baby

Sports Club Villa continue the continental journey on Saturday 12th as they lock horns with Jeshi la Kujenga Uchumi (JKU) FC at Namboole in the first leg of the Caf confederations cup first round match.

The Jogoos defeated Al Khartoum 2-0 in aggregate through goals from Lwanga Taddeo and Godfrey Lwesibawa in the respective legs to reach this stage.

Zanzibar on the other side have not yet tested the continental heat after their opponents-to-be, shop Gaborone United from Botswana failed to turn up for the tie hence Caf awarding a walkover to the islanders.

The Ugandans have been struggling in front of goal on the local scene where they have registered two consecutive barren draws against Simba and JMC Hippos but assistant coach Ibrahim Kirya promises the trend will turn to the ideal on Saturday.

“Two leg ties are very tricky especially when the second leg is away. So for us its important we take an advantage into the second game and that is by scoring goals at Namboole, ” coach Kirya told Chimp Sport adding that “The strikers have been wasteful in front of goal but though we have not been conceeding either. So our work is to rectify the problem. Iam sure fans will see goals on Saturday.”

JKU FC are not a new name to Ugandan football. They faced URA FC in the Mapinduzi cup held in Zanzibar over a month ago losing 3-1.

Coach Kefa Kisala, who was with the tax collectors in their victory, ‘steals’ the secret ,” They play short passes but its not a side you can underestimate. Villa have to close them down and score early goals to distabilize their plans. These two way games are hard to predict. A team always prepares for more than one game plan.”

Villa have a full fit squad but could be without Karim Ndugwa and Yaseri Waibi due to document issues.

The aggregate winner of this fixture will meet the equivalent in the clash between Morocco’s Fath Union Sport Rabat and UMS de Loum from Cameroon.

The second leg will be played at the Azam stadium in Zanzibar on Friday 18 March.
Residents in Mbarara Municipality were treated to drama, as two women claimed ownership of a one year old baby girl.

The case was reported at Mbarara Central Police Station on Friday by one Fiona Akankwasa, who claims that the toddler was stolen from her.

Judith Beingana, the known mother of the baby was summoned to the police station to give her version of the story.

The case however, turned dramatic as the two young women tabled contradicting proofs of motherhood.

Beingana told police that her baby was 15 months old while Akankwasa claimed that child was 17 months.

The latter testified that she produced the baby safely from the hospital, only to be told by doctors that the child has been stolen.

She said she had ever since tracked her child until recently when her investigations landed her on Beingana in Kijungu cell, Mbarara municipality.

The two women then exchanged profanities at the police stations as police officers watched in bemusement.

Police failed to resolve the matter and decided to call in for a DNA test which they said should start next week.

In a related development, police yesterday arrested another woman on allegations that she stole a child from Mbarara Referral Hospital.

Prossy Nabasa 20, a senior six student of Global High School was found with the missing 2 year old baby who was picked from the regional hospital the previous day.
