Ssaabasajja Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has today graced the kick off match of Bika football competition at Nakisunga, Kyaggwe as Engeye stunned Embogo to progress to another round.
His Majesty flagged off this year's tournament by kicking a ball surprisingly he is a lefter. This triggered cheers and Ululations from the spectators who turned up in big numbers to witness the ocassion.
Not as usual, this time the female referees where in the driving seat of the game with Alipo as the center referee.
First half went in a goalless draw then after a few minutes into the second half Ngeye clan through Masiko scored the opener to give edge over Mbogo clan.
The second goal resulted from a free kick as Ngeye clan's striker took a direct kick into the net leaving Mbogo's goal keeper stranded.
This marked the climax of the match as all the attempts Mbogo tried to make were futile. This means Mbogo clan was eliminated from the tournament next year as the tournament is played on a knockout a basis upto semi finals.
Ngeye players celebrating after scoring a second goal.
The tournament was delayed by a day due to the sudden death of the late John Ssebaana Kizito, a long serving Chairman of the Bika Football Committee to allow for burial preparations.
As expected, a moment of silence was observed in respect to the Late Ssebaana before the kick off.
