SNAPPED: From Magogo To Kamodo, Cranes Fans’ Morocco Trip

When President Yoweri Museveni announced that he would not only be funding the team’s travel to Morocco but also a fans’ trip, tension blew among football faithful and for the 153 passengers who travelled to the Moroccan city of Marrakech to cheer Uganda Cranes who eventually fell to Senegal 1-0, it was a worthwhile trip.

From the confusion at Entebbe International Airport to drama at the airport when reports trickled through State Minister in charge of primary Education Kamanda Bataringaya, who was head of delegation had in the chaotic preparations had his name removed from the travel list and not forgetting the drumming and singing while moving up and down the plane’s aisle and fanfare in North Africa, our lenses bring you the scenes.
