UGANDA : Uganda, Kenya in decisive match

by Sande Bashaija

Burundi v Rwanda 2pm
Kenya v Uganda 6pm
Kenya v Uganda (Girls) 4pm

Coach Hamza Nyambongo is confident Uganda will have a team at the Africa Junior Championships due October in Cairo, Egypt. Nyambongo guided the Ugandan girls’ team to a rare 47-47 draw against Kenya in the opening game of the Africa Zone 5 Championship at Lugogo on Tuesday and is looking to build on that performance in the return leg tonight.

“I know we are going to Egypt. The team is very well prepared and the Kenyans won’t stand in our way,” Ngambongo told Daily Monitor yesterday.

The girls will be playing all out at Lugogo hoping to enter history books as the first Ugandan representatives to participate in the continental event. Nabisunsa’s Mariam Tamale is most likely to earn a berth in the starting five.
