South African based Ugandan tycoon Ivan Semwanga has honoured his pledge of Shs6m to the Ugandan cranes for the two goals that were scored by Emma Okwi and Tony Mawejje this afternoon at Mandela National Stadium. That amount could have been more than that had the Uganda cranes scored more goals.
The tycoon was at the stadium watching but thirty minutes into the game, Angola had one goal as most fans were giving up on blowing their vuvuzela's. "This is disheartening," he tweeted. In the second half, the Uganda Cranes charged against the Angola team with Emma Okwi scoring in the 57th minute.
Kampala city was erupting into a wild jubilation for the first goal and then Tony Mawejje added a second goal 13 minutes to closing time sending fans inside the stadium and the neighbouring areas into frenzy.
"Thanks Uganda Cranes for the effort you put in to win the game -We are also confirming that me and King Lawrence have fulfilled our pledge to the Uganda Cranes, " the Tycoon confirmed before inviting fans to meet him and the Uganda Cranes players at Guvnor for the Champagne and Gold party.
