UGANDA : Warriors withdraw from Zone 5 event

Kyambogo Warriors have pulled out of next month’s Zone V Club Basketball Championships citing lack of funds for the relatively expensive trip to Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. The turnaround from the national league losing finalists implies that Miracle Eagles can now travel as one of two Ugandan men’s sides as a replacement for the October 9-15 event.

   “We have failed to raise the money so I confirm that we have pulled out and communicated to Fuba,” a frustrated Brian Gumisiriza, the Warriors team manager, said yesterday. Fuba vice-president Patrick Egwel has consequently written to Miracle to take the slot along with champions DMark Power who are expected to confirm or pull out by end of tomorrow. Power team manager Philip Kyomuhendo told this newspaper that they would compete in the annual tournament which would be the first they play outside Uganda in 10 years.
