MPS dominate Morocco-bound Cranes ‘shouting brigade’

World Cup qualifier

Saturday, 11pm (Ugandan time)

Senegal v Uganda

With just hours left for Cranes fans to board Ethiopian Airlines’ Boeing 737-800 Next Generation, commonly abbreviated as Boeing 737NG, RED Pepper Online can confirm the plane that was chartered to fly 153 fans sponsored by President Museveni to travel to Morocco for Uganda’s World Cup match against Senegal is dominated by Members of Parliament.

The list, which this paper has seen, has lawmakers, army officers, journalists and a few local fans not so common at Uganda’s home games in Mandela National Stadium, Namboole .

Instead of the usual vuvuzela-blowing Kamondo  and his  industrious crew, MPs spotted on the list including Hon. Jacob Opolot, Susan Amero, Lydia Chekwel, Moses Kasibante, Sarah Kataike and Susan Nakawuki, former ICT State Minister, John Chrysostom Alintuma Nsambu is also part of the Uganda supporters.

Security gurus Maj Innocent Tukashaba and Capt. George Kiggundu, will as well be in attendance for security reasons though it is yet to be understood if their jurisdiction stretches as far as North Africa.

Ethiopian Airlines area manager Abebe Angessa confirmed to reporters  yesterday that they had been booked to transport the fans. The airline has availed a Boeing 737-800 Next Generation, commonly abbreviated as Boeing 737NG for the fans.

The fans will touch down in Marrakech at 1.15pm Moroccan time and departure after the Saturday evening match will be at 2am. The fans return to Entebbe at mid-day on Sunday.

 

Passport woes

President Museveni, eager to have Uganda advance in the qualifiers of football’s top competition, last week offered sh559m so that 154 fans travel to the Moroccan tourist city to support the Cranes.

There are however fears that several of local football’s well known fans could miss out on tomorrow night’s flight because of lack of passports.

While some fans simply had no idea that passports would be required, others assumed that temporary travel documents like those common within East African Community members states, could be used to enter the North African state.

Many die-hard fans our team has talked to were bitter on being told that they would have to part with $120 (sh312,000)to cater for a visa, internal transport from Casablanca to Marrakech and stadium entry.

Registration of fans was being handled jointly by FUFA and the Education and Sports Ministry.
