After Besigye’s declaration of supporting Onduparaka and confirmation of attending the international friendly between the Mighty Caterpillars and the Kenyan giants Gor Mahia slated to take place later in the day, some political commentators rushed to the Colonel’s facebook sponsored post airing their view. Some believed the self proclaimed people’s president is finding ways of reconciling with the Northerners after his wife Winnie Byanyima broke the relationship by standing as a suarity for the Kanyamunyus.
However it’s illogical to think that way because first of all Besigye made the announcement of his interest and love for the Arua side before the ‘Winnie Saga’.
Secondly, if many of you can remember your SST very well, whether geographically or ethnically, Onduparaka has no connection with the late Akena who is believed to have been killed by Kanyamunyu.
The Club is located in Westnile, in the North Western part of this country which is very far from Nothern Uganda where Akena hailed from. Ethnically, Onduparaka is connected to the River lake Nilotes unlike Akena and the Northerners who are predominantly the Lou.
Considering these facts, rationally, Dr. Kizza’s facebook post citing his interest to spectate the biggest plot of the weekend is for the good of the Ugandan football league, his post marketed the match and that guarantees a huge turn for the match hence lucrative gate collection.
It also help to unite folks of different political affiliation inspite of their strifes, to seat on the same platform as they enjoy the same amnenite and share the vibrant atmosphere created by the two sets of crazy fans of East African soccer.
