Kony movie premiere a success amid grief for fallen lead actor

It was all about pomp and glamor as ‘Kony-Order From Above’ movie was officially premiered on Friday at Century Cinemax Acacia Mall, Kisementi.

The highly attended screening kicked off with red carpet and cocktail at around 6pm before sending revelers that included among others Tooro King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru and Arua County legislator Odonga Otto to a fun-filled experience.

Steven Ayeny, the movie director thanked Ugandans for the overwhelming attendance.

“The movie Premiere was a success, people turned up in large numbers. It became so emotional and it was so hard to hold my tears. I apologize that there was a technical glitches. I want to thank Uganda, UCC, Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Phaneroo, UGarol, APT communications”.

“Wow it was amazing! People loved it and their response was so positive, King Oyo, some MPs, UPDF, UCC guys were all there. It was the powerful premier expected, the cinema hall was too full, some people stood, others sat on the carpet,” said Simon Nyahahuma, one of the people who watched the movie.

“Very Inspiring. By God’s Grace I am buying another 10 tickets for people,” a one Joe Rwabose noted.

Despite the excitement, a somber mood found its way into the hearts of the merrymakers when it was disclosed that the Kony role actor Chanpapo Godfrey was unable to witness the successful story of the movie he acted; he passed on last year.

The premiere was also used to honour the fallen star. Chanpapo’s relative who described the deceased as a fighter revealed that he died of organ failure. Kony-Order From Above was selected by the Uganda Academy Selection Committee (USASC) as Uganda’s official entry for the 2020 Oscar Awards in the category of Best International film.

This marked the very first time Uganda is submitting an entry to the prestigious awards following the launch of the seven-member UASC in July this year.
