This isn’t enough ,the Ugandan president says that he was happy and he had initially announced that the Ugandan Olympic players will earn this per month.
The Gold medalist will earn Shs 5million per month ,Shs 3million for silver and sh 1million for bronze medalist .
I made an order in 2013 that anybody who wins gold at a continental level, commonwealth, or Olympics be paid Shs5m per month, Shs3m & Shs1 million for silver & bronze. I am told they are being paid quarterly. I speak English very well, let their money be paid, even the arrears. pic.twitter.com/dDy9R1Hn2P
