USPA member and rally navigator Leone Ssenyange says he is humbled by the Nile Special Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) Sports personality of the month of October recognition.
Ssenyange told New Vision in an interview after USPA members in their November assembly at Imperial Royale Hotel voted the rally crew of Ronald Ssebuguzi and Leone Ssenyange as Nile Special USPA sports personality of the month of October.
"Winning the Independence rally with a new a driver is great for me but being recognised by USPA humbles me," Ssenyange stated.
Ssenyange has been a navigator for Omar Mayanja until recently when he teamed up with Ronald Ssebuguzi.
"I'm very happy and this recognition has boosted my morale to fight hard next year so that I reclaim the National Rally Championship (NRC)," an excited Ssebuguzi stated.
The rally crew pooled 480 votes to beat the Uganda Cranes team that qualified for CHAN tournament who got 465 points.
