After Pressure mounting on State Minister for Sports Hon Peter Ogwang over the failure of Uganda to host its next AFCON fixture in the country due to the dragging Namboole project, he has finally apologized to the public for giving them the false hopes earlier.
In a tweet, Ogwang said he is sorry for and takes full responsibility for all what went wrong.
“I am pained to announce that Uganda Cranes’ AFCON home qualifier game scheduled for June 2023 will be played in Cameroon for failure to have works at Namboole Stadium completed on time. I take full responsibility & apologize to Ugandans for failing to fulfill my own promise.” He tweeted.
“However, works remain ongoing & on schedule as per the contract. All procurement contracts have been signed but we were only delayed in terms of deliveries which could go up to mid-May.Gov’t remains steadfast to ensure that the Stadium is completed without further delays.” He added.
Uganda Cranes will host its next AFCON fixure vs Algeria in Cameroon in June.
