The Kingdom of Ker Alur, with its 58 counties grouped into three sub-regions (Jonam, Padyere & Okoro), will field participants in the Bicycle Races and Football Matches, showcasing the region’s vibrant sporting talent.
Prime Minister of the Ker Alur Kingdom, Prince Lawrence Opar Angala the Jadipu, expressed gratitude for MTN’s continuous support. He encouraged the people to actively participate in the games, emphasizing the importance of education, particularly for girls, as a means to empower and uplift the community.
MTN Uganda’s commitment to the Ker Alur Kingdom goes beyond just sports. As part of the celebrations, MTN will make a generous donation of 110 million towards the Coronation Anniversary and the Ker Alur MTN Bicycle Races and Football Games, reflecting the organization’s ongoing dedication to supporting the cultural and socio-economic well-being of the Ker Alur Kingdom.
MTN Uganda extends its best wishes to the Ker Alur Kingdom and its residents on this historic occasion and looks forward to the exciting events and activities planned for the celebrations.
