South African based businessman-cum-sports lover Adam ‘Greensky‘ Ddumba has provided food stuffs worth Shs 2,000,000 (Two million Ugandan shillings) to Uganda powerlifters.
The donation (maize flour and rice) was handed over to the powerlifters by the manager Frank Kaheesi in Kampala.
US based powerlifter Roy Mubiru, the patron of the powerlifters in Uganda closely monitored (through social media) the proceedings.
In unison, the powerlifters, cried aloud to Government to reopen the health clubs, gyms and bars, as they are their surviving sources.
Many powerlifters are employed at gyms, health clubs and bars as instructors and bodyguards to meet their daily needs.
On a sad note, many calendars events have been cancelled.
A team of five powerlifters missed traveling to the US in March,2020 for the world powerlifting championship, it followed the May event in Vermont that was postponed.
Uganda is bound to lose hosting the world championship WPA slated for September 2020 if the the Government does not grant the green light by close of July or early August.
“We just struggling financing as our cash cows and gyms and bars were closed” cried out Stephen Gidudu who doubles as gym instructor and lifter.
Gidudu called on government to open up workout gyms, as they have earlier been respecting SOPS and social distancing.
