RX Radio Olive Najjuma has advised former athlete and 2005 gold winner Dorcus Inzukuru to make more realistic demand as she fights for her house that was donated to her by President Yoweri Museveni.
Inzikuru is asking government to intervene and save her house after authorities in Arua marked it for demolition to create space of a new access road. She wants the road relocated in order to save her property. The House was given to Inzukuru as a reward from President Museveni after her gold win at the women’s 3000m steeplechase in 2005. Her win ended Uganda’s 33 years drought without a medal in international sports. However, the athlete in a recent interview noted that she des not have the deeds to the property as she was only given a letter of occupation.
“We know you are important to this country and we are still very appreciative but to ask for a road to be diverted because it will affect your house is too much. Inzukuru should just ask to be given another house and this time with a proper title, I am sure government can afford to do that,” she said.
Olive’s co-host James Onen aka Fatboy joked that he should also be awarded for representing Uganda on the international level as the best radio presenter.
Fatboy was last year in November awarded as the best radio/tv person of the year at the 7th edition of the Africa Musik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA).
“I too should be awarded with some cash and may be a trophy. I didn’t get any of that when I was announced the Radio/Tv personality of the year in the whole of Africa,” Fatboy said during Thursday’s show.
