Uganda Premier League
Police 2-1 Soana
Police continued their impressive run since the start of the second round with yet another win against Soana on Friday.
Abdallah Mubiru the new coach at Police maintained his perfect start winning his third league game in charge with a 2-1 victory against Soana at Kavumba recreational ground.
Skipper Ben Ochen and Rahmat Ssenfuka scored for the cops while Francis Olaki’s strike for Soana settled for a consolation.
Returning to a ground that was their home ground, before shifting to Nakivubo stadium for the first time, Police seemed the better side.
Ben Ochen converted from the spot kick in the 24th minute to give Police the lead after Yasin Mugume had been fouled in the box by Siraje Turyamuhebwa.
Five minutes to the break, Soana leveled matters through Francis Olaki who tapped home Baker Lukooya’s cross for the equaliser.
Police however surged up in the second half and former Proline midfielder Rahmat Ssenfuka helped the cops to regain their lead.
Ssenfuka picked a loose ball outside the box (about 25 yards) before pouncing it with full energy to go straight into the back of the net.
Soana made several attempts to level matters once again but the visitors remained resilient and held onto the score until the final whistle.
Police remain 9th on table on 23 points while Soana who are yet to win any league game under new coach George Lutalo remain 6th on 24 points.
Nelson Senkatuka’s strike at the death of first half gave Proline FC a much needed victory over URA FC in a Uganda Premier League match played on Friday afternoon at the Mehta stadium in Lugazi.
With the tie heading to a barren halftime, Gift Ali picked a ball outside Proline box and sprint through to URA’s box while maneuvering through the yellow barricades on the way. The midfielder passed over to Dan Isiagi whose first time pass met Senkatuuka at the right place in the right time.
Coach Kisala was forced to boost his attacking power bank, introducing Kigongo and Feni Ali just after the break for Kyeyune and Kigongo respectively.
The change almost yielded five minutes later. Harry Gentle intercepted Sam Kintu’s pass, crossed over to Lule who in turn set up Feni inside the box but his stinging shot ended on the side net.
Mujib later on withdrew Isiagi for Simon Mbazira to solidify the packed midfield. Proline henceforth forged all ways to kill URA FC’s hopes with several stoppages forcing the referee to run the game up to 103 minutes.
URA FC remain 7th on the log while Proline shoot to 10th.
URA FC lineup: Muwanga Mathias, Ntambi Julius, Ssekitto Samuel, Kulaba Jimmy, Harry Gentle Frank, Lule Jimmy, Saidi Kyeyune (46′ Ronald Kigongo), Kagimu Shafiq, Bokota Labama (46′ Feni Ali), Lwasa Peter (68′ Mukhongotya Robert) Kiiza Hamis

National Resistance Movement (NRM) Electoral Commission has Friday released the road map to fill the seat in Kamuli Municipality which fell vacant after Court nullified the election of Hajati Rhema Wetongola, due to lack of required academic documents, in favor of FDC’s Salaamu Musumba.
The party Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson, Dr. Tanga Odoi revealed that after the seat was declared vacant by the national electoral commission, the party has rolled out a program for party primaries so as to come out with suitable candidates that will favorably compete with the opposition.
The ruling party will at a later date run primaries for all the vacant seats which include; Aruu North County MP, Woman MP for Moroto, Kamuli Municipality MP and for the LC V Chairpersons of Tororo district.
Tanga noted that all interested persons must be an NRM member, a born or resident in the electoral area and must have certified ‘O’ and ‘A’ Level Certificates or their equivalent.
“Expression of interest starts on Monday 27, February to 1st March and all forms shall be picked from the party Electoral Commission offices and the party shall appoint a date, time and place for joint campaign and polling. Anyone who wishes to stand for a position of a Municipality must write to the NRM EC expressing interest must pay a fee of only Sh2m non-refundable.”
Tanga warned against involvement in any illegal practices such as bribery, procurement of ineligible persons to vote, obstruction of voters and Election officials, soliciting for votes n polling day and unauthorized or multiple voting.
Commenting on whether Wetongola will be allowed to pick nominations for the party primaries, Tanga responded that this will only happen once she presents new certified academic documents.
“If Hajati Wetongola thinks she has the papers and expresses interest, we shall subject her to primaries like other candidates and we shall put to scrutiny her academic papers. We shall wait to see what new papers she has, may be she sat for senior six within the period.”
Uganda Premier League
Express 0-0 Vipers
Express football club and Vipers SC played to a goalless draw in the Azam Uganda Premier League game played on Friday evening at Muteesa II stadium, Wankulukuku.
Both teams came into the game with an aim of making amends but eventually looked blunt on the day failing to get the spark.
Despite starting the better side in the opening minutes, Express’ failure to create chances in the final third cost them as the visitors grew in confidence moments later but were also blunt going forward.
Brian Kakaire had a chance to break the deadlock in the 21st minute but his effort sailed way above the goal area.
Milton Kalisa also had a chance midway through the opening half but squandered it wide and the two sides returned to the dressing rooms with no shot on target registered.
Vipers opted for the first change of the game, three minutes after recess with Mike Sserumaga paving way for Keziron Kizito.
Moments later, Brian Kakaire was withdrawn for energetic forward Alfred Leku but still the changes failed to yield any dividends.
With 20 minutes to play, Kalisa got the best chance to put Vipers ahead but his attempt to dribble past onrushing goalkeeper Emmanuel Opio ended futile hitting the ball between the goalkeeper’s legs.
Yayo Lutimba got Express’ best chance of the game from a free kick but sailed a few inches above the cross bar.
The result means Vipers remain fourth on the table with 28 points in 17 games while Express also remain 8th on 24 points same as URA, Soana and Bright stars who are in 5th,6th and 7th position respectively.
Express starting XI
Emmanuel Opio, Musa Mukasa, Yayo Lutimba, Farouk Matovu, Sam Ssenkomi, Tekkwo Derrick (87′ Rashid Nsubuga), Mahad Kakooza, Saddam Juma, Toya Didier (68′ Daniel Otto),Simon Sserunkuma, Sulaiman Jjingo
Vipers starting XI

The Uganda Revenue Authority on Friday launched three important customs trade facilitation programmes to ease business operation across the region and the world.
The Centralized Document Processing Centre (DPC), Regional Electronic Cargo Tracking System (RECTS) and accreditation of new Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) are all being funded by the Trade Mark East Africa, a nonprofit businesses supporting initiative aimed at the growth of trade.
Monitoring of transit of cargo under customs control in Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya is now going be done by a (single) web-based integrated system, the RECTS.
Before Friday’s launch, each of the three countries had been operating separate national cargo tracking systems associated with challenges like lack of complete transit monitoring mechanisms resulting to instances of dumping, delayed bond cancellation and refund processing and poor information exchange.
According to the URA Commissioner General, Doris Akol, the Regional Electronic Cargo Tracking System is going to make traders enjoy a number of benefits during the course of importing and exportation of goods.
“RECT is going to facilitate seamless flow of transit cargo and a single view of cargo tracking along the corridor, eliminate non-tariff barriers in order to reduce transit times and reduce the cost of doing business,” Ms. Akol said.
RECT is also expected to provide real time detection of transit violation like theft and diversions, coordinate responses to alerts by rapid response units and provide regional viewing rights by both internal and external stake holders thus enhancing transparency.
A single Document Processing Centre situated at URA headquarters, Nakawa is now charged with all documentary check function for all customs declaration.
Akol told the participants at the launch that included ministers, business leaders and partners that the DPC shall be implemented in phased manners.
The minister of Trade, Industries and Cooperatives, Amelia Kyambadde who officiated at the launch said the government is strongly behind the electronic system of trading and the required administrative infrastructure.
“The government is doing everything possible for us to go digital mainly in trading. We only need to sensitize the stakeholders to appreciate the benefits of these amazing developments,” she said.
