AFCON: Just like that, Ugandans love the DRC

   

But DRC was not taking this joke lying. A one Teekay wrote, “Someone please ndibhalanziseiwo so we lost 1nil to Egypt and the same Egypt beat Uganda and DRC 2nil each that's the same Uganda we drew 1 all against.” He then cried out, “The same Uganda beat DRC 2nil n the same DRC beat us 4nil. What a joke.”

It wasn’t that the Egypt-Uganda Cranes match ended on a painful 2-1 loss for Uganda Cranes. That almost didn’t matter. The irony, right? It was that suddenly, Social Media was awash with Ugandans singing praise of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

See, the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is a very stimulating time for the continent. A game of football that starts out with 24 teams will be reduced in phases, knock-out phases that is to the final two. As online site, The South African would put it, “One of the key points of intrigue is the expansion of the tournament from 16 to 24 teams.” This they go on to explain means making it through to the first round of knockout matches is possible even if a side does not finish in the top of the table.”

But then, why is Uganda celebrating the fact that Zimbabwe, a team it drew with last week had been beaten by DRC, a team they (Uganda) beat 2-1? “DRC as our beloved neighbour whipped Zimbabwe 4-0, and the mathematics made it easier for us to progress to the next stage,” Steven Odeke, an arts and sports journalist offers. “That is why we love them today.” That means Uganda has made it to the second place in the group A, despite losing to Egypt in last night’s game.

That aside, it was seeing leaders, and just different people reacting with a satirical love for DRC that was hilarious. “UBC betrayed us but DRC did not! Congratulations Uganda upon making it to the next round of #AFCON2019,” former leader of opposition, Winnie Kiiza wrote. Soon, Don Wanyama, the Presidential senior press secretary, also joined in on the joke and even tagged a friend, “Ours was to play beautiful football. Scoring was assigned to DR Congo. Something good finally from the land of Asuman Bisiika.”

 In a hilarious post, comedian, Herbert Mendo aka, Teacher Mpamire was quick to tell Egypt that River Nile, had in fact shifted to the beloved DRC. A one Sir Gordon Tukwasibwe also sarcastically said, “Thank you DRC for the great work done. You can now join EAC. To #Kenya. If DRC did it, you can also did it. Deal with #Senegal please!”

 But DRC was not taking this joke lying. A one Teekay wrote, “Someone please ndibhalanziseiwo so we lost 1nil to Egypt and the same Egypt beat Uganda and DRC 2nil each that's the same Uganda we drew 1 all against.” He then cried out, “The same Uganda beat DRC 2nil n the same DRC beat us 4nil. What a joke.”
