Kudos Uganda Cranes! You made us proud
Economic and civil rights activists who doubles as inspirational speaker, Frank Gashumba has applauded the Ugandan National Football team “The Uganda Cranes” for making the country proud. The activist while speaking in the wake of the country’s elimination from African Nations Cup participating for the first time since 1978 said the team’s speed doesn’t matter and gave them kudos for flying the country’s flag. He urged fans to turn up in big numbers to welcome the team when they return home of Friday. This is his statement;
‘Your speed doesn’t really matter! Forward means forward. Thank you Denis Onyango and the entire Uganda Cranes team. Our boys performed beyond our expectations and you really made us proud. Qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nation was a surprise and miracle to me because we failed so many times before to make it up there.
As Ugandans we should always develop a culture of appreciating those who have done their best especially at a national level. It will send a clear message to them that they weren’t alone that’s why I am appealing to all of you Ugandans, to go to Entebbe Airport to welcome the Uganda Cranes team as Heroes. If Ugandans went to Entebbe Airport and lined up to pick Gaetano after his eviction from Big brother Africa, I pray that number multiplies 1000 times the day our boys will come back. Actually arriving in Kampala, President Museveni sent a helicopter to airlift Gaetano to meet him where he was up country and am hoping he should appreciate these boys who carried our flag up there.
Note: By thanking Uganda Cranes, I am not thanking the Ministry of Education and Sports and the FUFA management. I have their dosage coming soon! I mean very soon!
See you at Entebbe Airport and please Ugandans let’s all go in numbers!! I will be there @ Entebbe Airport, will you….? Kudos Uganda Cranes,” Frank Gashumba.
