The year is closing in on us and there is no sign of these two events taking place. Annual events like the MTN Marathon, Amakula Film Festival, Miss Uganda and the likes have taken place but looks like we are demanding for a little more.
The goats race will for sure not take place this year bearing in mind that it was held in August last year and it is now December with no mention of it. Pearl of Africa Music Awards (Pam) Awards for 2009 will be held in 2010. The date for the function has been changed at least twice.
The Royal Ascot Goat Race which normally takes place at Munyonyo Resort Beach collected over Uganda shillings 20,000,000/- last year and the contributions from the race were donated to charities and Non Governmental Organisations.
Where as PAM Awards which aim at recognizing artists/musicians in various categories has been on for the last six years, the function has been hit by management wrangles only to be rescheduled for next year if it is to take place.
This has given room to at least two sets of Awards; the Golden Music Awards and the Diva Awards for female artists only taking place on Dec 12.
