Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago is in South Africa to witness the showdown between KCCA FC and Onyango’s Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF champions league qualifier to group stage. The Lord mayor met the team at City Lodge Hotel in Pretoria where he gave them a motivating prep talk as the club’s patron.
According to the Caf website, teams that makes it to the group stages of Caf Champions League automatically earn $550,000 (about Shs2b) as this is the amount given to clubs that finish third and fourth in the groups, meaning all that our clubs would only have to get to the group stage to assure themselves of a share of this money. Now here is the hard part. For KCCA to get to the group stage, they will have to knock the reigning champions Sundowns—the team Uganda’s first choice goalkeeper Denis Onyango plays for.
