As EcoBank goes ahead to raise money to top up for broke Uganda Cranes, more people are joining the train to ensure the national team players are not frustrated ahead of their opening game next week.

On Thursday, veteran actor and CBS programs director Abbey Mukiibi donated an undisclosed amount of money for the Cranes’ Mujje Tulumbe fundraising campaign.

Mukiibi who made the donation at his office in Bulange Mengo, is an ardent fan of sports, and his morning show Kalisoliiso is one of the most listened to comic sports programs in Uganda.

On the other hand, singer and pastor Wilson Bugembe also made a generous donation to the Mujje Tulumbe fundraising campaign. The Ecobank executives found Bugembe at his office in Nansana where he also runs a church.

The campaign goes on as citizens put matters into their hands to ensure their team does not use money as an excuse in Gabon for not performing as required.
