USPA Monthly Awards : Shafik Kiwanuka is November’s best sports personality


Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) has on Monday 2nd December voted Pugilist Shafik Kiwanuka as the month of November 2019 best sports personality.

This was during the sports body’s monthly convention at Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.

Kiwanuka unanimously won Zimbabwe’s Thamsang Dube to clinch the WBF Africa Heavyweight title in a fight that was held on Friday 29th November at International University of East Africa.

He became the first ever Ugandan in history to win an heavyweight title.

Kiwanuka managed 290 votes to beat Kobs Rugby Club who garnered 270 votes.

The legend based club stunned arch rivals Heathens RFC last month to win the 2019 Uganda Cup.
