UGANDA : Fuba Cash Strapped Ahead of Africa Qualifiers

WITH the Zone 5 All Africa Games qualifiers days away, Federation of Uganda Basketball Associations (Fuba) is desperately soliciting funds to ensure the country is represented.

The tournament gets underway February 3-10 in Kigali, Rwanda. Fuba failed to meet the registration deadline of January 15 but the federation's general secretary Elliot Bagenda told Daily Monitor on phone yesterday they informed organisers about their financial hiccups.

"As of now the problem is money but we are set for the tournament. We have contacted prospective sponsors in Nile Breweries, MTN Uganda, Bank of Uganda and some individuals but there is no feedback at the moment," said Bagenda.Fuba needs about Shs40m to send two teams (men and women) including a late registration of Shs0.8m. Ugandan men are the defending champions but poor preparations may condemn them to mere participants not contenders.

Meanwhile, Rwanda National Basketball Federation (Ferwaba) technical director, Innocent Karuhije said yesterday that Fiba had advised them to count Sudan and Eritrea out of the Kigali tournament. " Sudan failed to secure adequate funds to take part in the event while Eritrea's sudden pull-out is still unknown," Karuhije was quoted as saying by the local press.

The duo's pull-out has left eleven countries including Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Zanzibar, Somalia, Seychelles, Djibouti and hosts Rwanda in the eventThe organisers have already arranged accomodation.
