TANZANIA : Arusha Kings in Dire Straights

by Victor Machota

Arusha Kings may be reigning in Arusha but their pockets are empty.
The basketball team that had qualified for Muungano league in Zanzibar from May 17 has failed to make it to Zanzibar due to lack of funds.
The ZANTEL sponsored - league, however, went on as scheduled with Tanzania Mainland represented by three men's teams: Dodoma Spurs, ABC and Savio both from Dar es Salaam. Women had three teams taking part.
Zantel has set aside some Tsh.6.8 million for the winning teams in the competitions.
The King's leader, Elias Mwabukusi lamented last week that their team failed to get a sponsor to get them down to the Isles and hence had their place taken by a Dar es salaam team.
Mwabukusi said his team was now undergoing intensive training for the basketball intercity competitions due to take place in June in Dar es Salaam.
