Star trail: Golola cursed?


Home fans turned against their man, kickboxer Moses Golola, at a time when he needed them most.

Golola’s crime was disappointing fans by allowing Zoltan Poczo to pound him with blows like he had stolen a mobile phone. This happened on Sunday at Nateete shopping centre.

Fans were heard cursing Golola who was later controversially declared winner. His fans, who were previously chanting his name, crossed sides and started singing Poczo’s praises, and even raised his hand as the winner objecting to the umpire’s choice of Golola.

Many were heard swearing never to return to watch any Golola fight. The only consolation was the comedians and singers who spiced up the evening.

Gloria Wavah leaves mark at Kakira polo

During the polo tournament over the weekend in Kakira, Jinja, Spear Motors, the Mercedes Benz franchise owner in Uganda, were part of the sponsors.

And Gloria Wavamunno and her sister, both daughters to Spear Motors proprietor Gordon Wavamunno, arrived at the venue in style.

Both were looking all fine with fashion designer Gloria wearing a high-slit dress and statement sunglasses.

Photographers gathered to take pictures of them posing next to one of the Benzes on display.

One of the polo players joined the camera moment and he joked: “Hopefully I can get one of these.”

Gloria assured him how even she cannot get a free one. Really? Daddyyyy?

The artists supported by Janet Museveni plan to put in place the arts self-coordinating entity that is intended to make grassroots inroads using music and drama.

Club Venom brings sushi party

Ugandans will never cease to amuse; they will not allow any trendy festivity to leave them behind, even when it is totally irrelevant for a Ugandan setting.

See how they brought Halloween and St Patrick’s celebrations. This time round the innovators have decided to introduce the world-famous sushi parties to Ugandans.

This Boxing Day, party-goers will be eating sushi off bodies of models clad in bikinis at Club Venom. Never mind that sushi according to Wikipedia – who else – is a Japanese delicacy consisting of cooked, vinegared rice combined with other ingredients usually raw fish or other seafood.

This will be the first event of its kind. The sushi-themed party is organised by Katumba Shaffic aka Katsha, based in South Africa.
