“It was a great experience to read the map for Yasin Nasser. It was such a lovely moment as a navigator,” an excited Mayiga
said.  I loved the sound and the power of the car. This sport is loved and cherished by youth. I was never nervous because I was in the hands of a champion. We ought to use it to sensitize more about good road usage.” Owek. Mayiga who braved the roaring sound of the Ford remarked.

Owek. Katikkiro Mayiga also urged the use of road signs in native languages, for easy interpretation of the different users.
Leading as the main fundraiser at event, the Katikkiro outlined Nkozi Hospital fundraising drive targeted to raise Uganda
shillings 3b to refurbish the accident and trauma wards.
