CECAFA games that were scheduled for Thursday afternoon were almost cancelled due to the heavy downpour that rocked Kampala.
However the playing teams insisted on going ahead with the scheduled matches despite the current state of disrepair at Namboole stadium.
Earlier there was miscommunication between organizers and Supersport that was supposed to telecast the day’s matches live. Supersport later announced that it would show the games live.
If the rains continue at this rate which is common with Kampala-November weather, the organizers will be forced to seek an alternative playing field considering that the rains have turned Namboole into a miniature swimming pool.
The other alternative would be Nakivubo Stadium but it is worse when it rains.
Currently, the teams that have so far qualified are hosts Uganda Cranes and Burundi by press .
Recently, the Federation of Uganda Football Association, FUFA announced that it would bid to host Africa cup of nations AFCON in the near future . This leaves many wondering how Uganda can handle Africa cup of nations amidst biting poverty, lack of resources and corruption scandals that have rocked the country’s administrative structures.
