Kampala Mayor John Ssebaana Kizito on Monday launched the East and Central Africa Inter Cities Basketball Championships to be hosted here between May17-24 at Lugogo Indoor Stadium.

Ssebaana revealed that the City Council has contributed Shs36m of the Shs70m needed for the tournament.

"This is a big event on which we will be judged whether we can host other bigger tournaments. We therefore call on other well-wishers to come in and contribute so that we can successfully host it," he said.

They include Nairobi, Mombasa, Dar-es-Salaam, Mbeya, Mwanza, Arusha (TZ), Lubimbashi, Goma (DR Congo), Lusaka, Kitwe, Kigali, Luanda (Angola) Harare (Zimbabwe) and Seychelles. Jinja Municipality will be Uganda's second side in both men and women.
