FUFA Drum 2019 Quarter finals – Match Day 5 Results:

Match Day 5:

  • Busoga 3-4 Bugisu
  • Lango 1-3 West Nile

Euphoric scenes among delighted Bagisu community always precipitate the outspoken “Kadodi” dance.

The dance is normally perfected during times of happiness as the Bagisu people initiate teenage boys into adulthood with circumcision in a ceremony culturally tagged “Imbalu”.

The Kadodi dance was performed in the aftermath of Bugisu’s 4-3 win over Busoga at the Pece War Memorial Stadium in Gulu Municipality, Northern Uganda on Wednesday.

A brace by Kiboga Young goalkeeper –cum-striker Steven Makumba, Mbarara City’s Raymond Onyai and a penalty from Sports Club Villa striker Ronald Magwali gave Bugisu the deserved win.

Busoga’s three goals were scored by Bakali Magunda and a brace from Richard Wandyaka (including a penalty).

The victory meant that Bugisu became the third province to qualify for the semi-finals to join Lango and Bukedi.
