Uganda Cranes football players led by Salim Jamal via his twitter cried out that they had not yet received their pay from president Museveni for their representation of the nation at the 2019 AFCON tournament.
On Saturday, the Uganda government paid Socialite Bad Black the money that she claimed to be owed that came up to the tune of UGX 500 Million.
The players on an online troll through their twitter accounts asked if they too should visit Mzee to get their pay which they claim hasn’t come through yet.
“Even us Uganda Cranes, the old man did not pay us, perhaps we should also contact Balaam but no 50/50 let’s wait” Said Jamal Salim
Team captain Denis Onyango was not taking that the whole suggestion of 50/50 “50/50, we can’t agree with that, blood ”
Jamil was among the players who were accused of starting a rebellion at the AFCON tournament demanding for their allowances.
The interesting bit about the entire thread was the choice of memes from the country’s number one shot-stopper Denis Onyango. He is well known for these moves since his exchange with Vipers SC Public Relations Officer Abdu Wesike as they troll each other about understanding the game of cricket.
Onyango sent Justus Perez to go and cook dinner when asked if they had not received their posho and beans from the national task force.
The question now remains on whether the players did receive their money or it is just a thing of having fun on an online banter seeing as Socialite Bad Black received her money for an Ad that she made for the Ministry of Health about asking sex workers to not engage in sexual acts with truck drivers who were believed to be the biggest source of COVID19 cases in the East African country.
