In life, certain things are set in stone; death, taxes and the fact that sports brings people together. This was the case at the recently concluded Airtel Masaza cup at the Mandela National stadium Namboole where Bulemezi and Busiro tussled it out in the final for the ultimate prize.

Bulemezi emerged victorious after grabbing a solitary goal in extra time to send the fans in a frenzy. The Masaza cup celebrates sports and Ugandan heritage through bringing people together to celebrate this extravaganza that upholds football in Uganda as well as uplifting culture.

The Kabaka graced the event

Buganda’s King; Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi 2nd graced the event as guest of honor which further cemented the tournament’s cultural relevance.

UNAIDS is diligently fighting against the HIV/AIDS scourge in Uganda and across Africa; Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi 2nd, who had been appointed as UNAIDS ambassador in 2017, continues to play a pivotal role in ending the disease in Uganda.


Using sports to end the scourge

The respect held by the Kabaka was key to why the UNAIDS chose to partner with him. Using his influence to face and voice the fight against HIV especially among the youth in Uganda.

It was a fitting platform for UNAIDS and their ambassador to spread the word to the youth about AIDS and what should be done to prevent or contain the virus. Not forgetting the importance of taking caution and having regular checkups.

He presided over the prize awarding ceremony where he handed over a cheque of 12 million Uganda shillings to Bulemezi; the champions.
