Bobi Wine, a Ugandan music artist has given five million shillings to the Uganda Cranes football club to kick off the ECO Bank/FUFA fundraising drive, “Tulumbe AFCON Nakajja” at ECO Bank head office in Kampala.
In light of the fundraising drive, Bobi called upon the community to support the Cranes team as they approach the Africa Cup of Nations after 38 years.
“Sports and Arts are some of the things that sell our country, and where talent is concerned I’m very involved that is why I have come in. But this is special because we last qualified for AFCON 38 years ago and I have never had an opportunity to support my country and the Cranes, so since we qualified I was compelled to come and support in a humble way. And I would encourage other Ugandans to embrace the campaign because it is the Cranes that binds us together despite our several differences,” Bobi said before handing over the cash to ECO Bank Managing Director Clement Dodoo.
Big ups to the ghetto president!
