Arsene Wenger will leave Arsenal but will not retire

The Arsenal boss has come under mounting pressure this season as supporters and pundits alike call for his head.

The Gunners face a serious risk of missing out on Champions League football next season and their best chance of qualifying is by winning the Europa League.

It is thought that Wenger may call time on his 22-year reign in the summer, despite having 12 months left on his contract.

But if the Frenchman does decide end his spell in north London then he claims he would like to try his hand at another club before entering retirement.

Yes, of course [I want to manage after Arsenal], as long as I have the physical strength and the desire to do it .”Arsene Wenger

“Yes, of course [I want to manage after Arsenal], as long as I have the physical strength and the desire to do it,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS.

“I know that depends on my physical status and how well I am mentally.

“It’s a decision I’ll have to make at some stage.

“At the moment I live in the present and I just want to do as well as I can for my club and I don’t worry too much what happens to me.

Fundraising for Museveni retirement package put on hold,there are no signs of him leaving

Opposition leaders in Ankole have suspended the fundraising drive for President, Yoweri Museveni’s retirement package.
Mweteise Bintabara, the Kiruhura District FDC Chairperson, announced the suspension of the fundraising drive at Grand Holiday hotel in Mbarara town on Monday.
He explained that they took the decision to suspend the drive, which started on October 4th 2017 and had already Shillings 8 million after learning that Museveni isn’t about to retire.

According to Bintabara, they will return the money to the contributors since they recorded the details of each contributor.

Bintabara says initially, they thought the architects of The Constitution (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill, 2017, which seeks to scrap article 102 (b), which caps the president’s age at 75 years were pushing their personal interests only to learn Museveni is behind the move.

He says the statements attributed to Museveni following the NRM caucus last week are a clear indication that he isn’t willing to retire.

Wilberforce Ongomu Ahimbisibwe, the former Rwampara County FDC parliamentary candidate, says many people had shown interest in contributing towards the cause. He says they thought it wise to suspend the campaign and look for other options.

Daniel Kafureka, the Mbarara District FDC General Secretary says it is  unfortunate that Members of parliament from the ruling party have failed to explain  to the president the need for him to relinquish power and give Ugandans a gift of a peaceful transition.

Kafureka says the time is now for the president to listen to the cries of Ugandans at the grassroots rather than connive with members of parliament whose only interest to get money from him.
