Mutatina added that the main aim of this friendly match is for us to create contacts with people in the industry while making fun.’’
The president of the KIU Mass communication Students association, Ibrahim Matovu applauded Mutatina’s effort in trying to sell the association to the outside world.
‘’I am so grateful for what Mutatina is doing and I want to commend him for keeping our association active. I am quite so busy but with people like Arnold, am sure a lot is still coming,’’ he noted.
‘’I encourage those who can play to come and represent on Saturday and also those who can do the cheering are needed and highly welcome, this is our thing, let's embrace it,” he added
