The 61 year old was one of the most long serving employees at UBC, a public announcer at Namboole mostly on all Uganda Cranes games and was also the First Vice President of Federation of International Cinema and Television Sports based in Milan, Italy.

“Andrew worked till late yesterday and I was expecting his call this morning to confirm the La Liga fixture UBC will show today, instead someone else called me on his behalf and not to tell me the news I was expecting or wanted. This has rattled me to the core. The entire UBC Team is shocked and devastated by this news. He was a sports icon with the highest level of professionalism.” said UBC spokesman Abbey Rafsanjan Tatya.
