The 40-man Uganda national team continent is headed to compete at the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco.

Kenya is not participating in the tournament as the country was facing a Fifa ban when the tournament was played.

Magogo is also a member of parliament, and Among is his third wife. The gift comes months after Among gifted Magogo a brand new Range Rover Evogue 2022 edition on his birthday, estimated at Sh22 million.

The lovers have been married for some months now, even though the marriage has faced challenges amid reports there were hitches in its official registration by a government official.

Their marriage was temporarily cancelled by the Town Clerk of Makingye Division Urban Council, Geoffrey Rwakabale, who argued that the two had not registered their marriage with the sub-county chief or town clerk in their area within six months.

She was on the spot in 2021 for living extravagantly after Uganda’s government reportedly spent UGX2.4 billion (about Sh80 million) on acquiring state of cars for herself and Tayebwa.
