Africa Soccer UGANDA : Museveni spoils ex-Cranes skipper Denis Onyango with Pajero

Uganda State President, Yoweri Museveni, has spoiled former Cranes goalkeeper and captain, Denis Onyango, with a brand new Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) confirmed the development through its tweeter handle today, Friday.

 “Denis was accompanied by his beloved mum & was rewarded with a brand new Sports Pajer. His Excellency President of the Republic of Uganda @KagutaMuseveni and Minister of Education & Sports @Janet Museveni rewarded former @ UgandaCranes Captain @ Masindeonyango at Statehouse Ebbe with a Sports car for his glorious career with the National team and Club football,” FUFA tweeted.

The South Africa-based Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper flew back home at the invitation of the FA for the event which the State House organized in Entebbe.

FUFA President, Moses Magogo, witnessed the occasion alongside First Vice-President, Justus Mugisha and Chief Executive Officer Edgar Watson, and others.

Onyango retired days after Uganda succumbed to Richard Mbulu’s diving header in the 16th minute at Kamuzu Stadium, Blantyre, on March 29 2021.

Malawi won 1-0 and qualified for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals whereas Uganda crashed out of the qualification race.

Onyango, who earned 80 caps, will continue with his club career in South Africa at Mamelodi Sundowns.

He won the CAF Champions League and many domestic titles with the club and SuperSport United.

He can now enjoy his retirement from the national team while driving the luxurious Pajero.

Mitsubishi website says the Pajero Sport “lets you switch between 2WD and 4WD modes at up to 100kmh, so you can adapt to changing road conditions on the fly. Super Select has four modes to handle everything from smooth city lanes to hazardous conditions and extreme terrain with minimal grip levels, all controlled with a single switch on the centre console.

Off the bitumen, you can select any of three Off Road Modes: Gravel, Mud/Snow and Rock. Each mode ensures maximum traction by optimising power delivery from the engine, transmission settings and the braking system.”
