A better Society

It won’t be only about play. Organisers of the gala have also arranged an awards ceremony for star performers.  London Olympics marathon champion Stephen Kiprotich tops this list.

Kiprotich stands out as Uganda’s most successful athlete for winning both the Olympics and World marathon titles.

“We shall reward him a special trophy,” explained one of the event’s organizers Edward Akaanga.

Also on the awards list is Uganda’s first professional netballer Peace Proscovia.

Nicknamed “Warid Tower” Proscovia plays for the Loughborough Lightning team in the Netball Super league in the United Kingdom.

She has captained Uganda to several titles including the Netball Nations Cup in Singapore and the African Netball Championship.
