Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah has asked local kickboxing champion Moses Golola to start training young people who will succeed him.
Golola, who had paid a courtesy visit to Oulanyah at Parliament on Tuesday to present his champion’s belt was advised to start training young blood who will keep his name shining even if he is no longer around.
“Moses Golola is my trainer and that is how I got to understand him better. He is not the person many people think he is. A lot of people don’t know who Golola is. He is a kind man, a family man who loves to inspire young people and I would say this is the right time for Golola to embark on training others to be successful as he is,” said Oulanyah.
The deputy speaker added that Golola is very inspirational and should therefore use his fame and love for young people to start training new generations of many Gololas.
“I pledge to work with Golola to realise his dream of building Golola Talent Academy. We need to help young people,” he said before congratulating Golola for his ‘Fight of the Century’ win against Umar Ssemata.
Golola welcomed the idea and promised to promote young talents.
“We need to support young people that is why the academy project is in progress. This will be a state of the art fitness centre. We will train in professional kickboxing and self-defence,” he said before thanking Oulanyah for his support.
“I came here today to visit my friend, the Deputy Speaker and show him my belt and also to inform him and Parliament at large about my projects,” he said.
