UAM to fight Malaria at CECAFA 2012

United Against Malaria will utilize the forthcoming three week CECAFA Tusker Challenge Cup to sensitize the public on the fight against malaria.

The regional tournament kicks off next Saturday and will have teams from 12 member countries battling out for honours at Namboole Stadium.

FUFA Chief Executive Officer Edgar Watson and UAM team leader Kenneth Mulondo believe their partnership will succeed in fighting the killer disease in the region.

“Football is a language that can be used to spread the course against Malaria easily. We hope to have a Malariafree population,” Mulondo said.

Under the theme ‘Kick Malaria out of the Region’ UAM also plan to distribute insecticide treated mosquito nets at Namboole.

It is the first time the campaign will take place during the tournament in Uganda after the same was successfully held in Zanzibar, Rwanda and Tanzania last year.

Malaria kills over 3,000 children daily in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Salute Origi : Kenyan Divock Origi became the 1st Kenyan to score at the world cup after he turned a listless Belgian performance into a late 1-0 win over Russia on Sunday, enough to qualify for the next round of the World Cup with two straight victories. With this goal, Origi became the youngest goalscorer in Belgium World Cup history at 19 years, 65 days old. With Belgian King Philippe looking on, substitute Kevin Mirallas hit a freekick against the post in 84th minute, setting off a late revival. At first it looked like late moves from Eden Hazard would only camouflage a dismal performance. Playmaker Edin Hazard made a move into the penalty box area on the left and spotted Origi free in the center. A pinpoint pass from Hazard and cool right-foot finishing from the 19-year-old Origi gave Belgium more than it deserved. Divock Origi who is the son of renown former Harambee Stars player Mike Okoth Origi was born at Oostende Belgium and has lived most of his life outside Kenya. Taking into account of his nationality Kenyans could not stay away from celebrating that special moment of fame after he scored like they did for Obama and Lupita Nyong’o. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
