    Congratulation to Ms. Otandeka Oti; seems she loves the sport & has the talent to get better. The name Oti reminds me of former Uganda great David Otii who played for the Cranes & also coached the national team. Again, it is so wonderful to see a young Ugandan lady with such huge potential…please keep up the hard work & make us all proud. Now, as a Season Ticket Holder of the Houston Dynamo an MLS team it would be nice some day to see Ms. Otandeka Oti sign up with the Lady Dynamo; we have one of the most beautiful stadium in the league but most importantly a fantastic passionate fan base! Good luck to the young lady…way to go Ms. Oti.

    Thats great oti, the entire Uganda is looking up to you.Your works can very easily transform the out look of a big Number of Ugandan Female and bring a smile to the faces of those young beauties that are struggling to make it great but they dont have chance.I know a number of them and you could be their mentor in that field. PRECIOUS BLOOD INTERNATIONAL REFFERAL HOSPITAL is already working with three groups ( clubs) of female football in terms of medical insurance and covers.I Hope you will pick interest to partner with these clubs and companies to light up their vision.
