Thousands throng Masulita for Zebra’s send off

David Gombe

Multitudes ⁰of mourners attended the burial of former Bombers captain Isaac Ssenyange alias Zebra Mando at his ancestral home in Masulita on Thursday 31st December, 2020.

The amount of love and affection that the people showed to the fearless fighter was tremendous.

Zebra was brought down in a hail of fire in the wee hours of Wednesday outside his home in Bwaise a slum in Kampala by assailants travelling in two vans commonly known as drones.

Uganda Boxing Federation President Moses Muhangi, Kawempe Division Mayor Emmanuel Sserunjogi, Kampala Deputy RCC in charge of Kawempe division Hood Hussein, Musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleon, Boxers, politicians from the ruling party and opposition were among the hundred of thousands that accorded affection to the fallen commander.

Kawempe Mayor Sserunjogi confirmed that they are to re name the road from Eden Pub to Kawaala in commemoration of the late.

“Zebra has been a friend and son to me. He has indeed represented our nation, Kawempe division has lost a special person and we will always remember him.”

“He has to be appreciated for the tremendous work he has done for the division. We are to name the Eden Pub to Kawaala road after him in honour of his great work to the division.”

Said Sserunjogi.

Muhangi said that Zebra has left a big gap to the Boxing fraternity

“I just don’t know how I will run the Federation because he has left a big gap to the Boxing fraternity. I call upon the government to investigate the death of Zebra.”

Stated Muhangi.

Zebra was raised in the Ghetto of Bwaise and fought in the amateur ranks through the late 90s and 2000s before he turned pro in 2012.

He has been working as the in charge of general duties in the office of the President at the Uganda Boxing Federation

Rest in Peace Zebra.
