The man behind St. Mary’s Stadium & Ug’s Football.
There are many things going on around the Country good and bad. Many iconic
Ugandans are dieing or have died during especially this period of COVID19
Yet many are raising the ladder of success and development achieving milestones
But there are those that have been here for decades and have achieved many
Milestones, many achievements both personal and National but are never mentioned
Or are even mentioned not to full expectations or as required and normally we don’t
While we still have them but we do when they have waygone or passed on
If you’re looking for people who have done tremendously well for this Country
Economically, religiously, academically and all round culturally and even more
In the World of sports, Soccer and even and talent upbringing & showcasing
Look nofurther than Mr. Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa.
Amonth ago we were talking about late BMK as one of the hugest contributors of Uganda’s economy
Through many other sectors but only when he had just passed on
& then some of the biggest Country’s top leaders then thought of renaming some of Kampala’s streets
To his NAME BMK but that is all after he’d passed on
Today at the Kampala Gossip we’re talking about Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa who has done so much
That you cannot also finish to mention if you had started to do.
One of the hugest contribution or achievement that keeps on poping up is St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende
Before you even mention St. Mary’s boarding school which has seen thousands
Of Ugandans educated and graduated through various academics
St. Mary’s Stadium is one of the biggest Country’s milestones.
As a Country we had never had such a football pitch or standard Stadiums. Its the first of its kind in Uganda and across
East Africa. Talk about Vipers FC who are actually official owners of the football stadium
All created and owned by the same Mr. Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa.
He deserves any mention and any position of leadership you’d like to mention
Be it political or religious I’m sure he’d still give you the results
Today at the Kampala Gossip, we give and shine alight on Mr. Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa for all he has done
For the Country.

And he was the second longest serving FUFA president after Kabaka Daudi Chwa in (1924-1932).
