Mudde, a former footballer-cum-swimmer disclosed his aspirations to Kawowo Sports in an exclusive interview;

Like we have contributed generously to community building during the previous years with donations to SOS-Entebbe, TASO, Corsu Rehabilitation center – Kisubi, this year round we are tackling education with construction of a public library for the people of Kasenyi at Faith International School.
