Elected leaders of Kampala postpone independence game

Man Jose Kayima

The elected leaders of Kampala have agreed to postpone the match that was organized by KCCA as part of Uganda’s 60th Independence day celebration.

The football match was between the Political wing and technical wing and was scheduled to take place on Friday, 7th October at the Philip Omondi Stadium.

In a document from the personal assistant to the Lord Mayor Elvis Kintu, the elected leaders of Kampala say,

“On Tuesday this week, we were informed that there were preparations for a football game between the KCCA Political and Technical Wings. Whereas this game is welcome in the spirit of dealing with dichotomization in the institution and emphasizing camaraderie, the elected leaders think this isn’t the right timing to hold this kind of game.”

“You will recall that last week, there was a consultative meeting called to capture the ideas from the boda boda sector regarding the ongoing processes of drafting the Kampala Public Transport Ordinance and this was frustrated with the support of the police and military. On Wednesday, the Authority Councilors made efforts to visit Busega as recommended by Council, but they were also frustrated.”

“The elected leaders of Kampala, therefore, cannot be seen fraternizing with individuals who are behind such brutality meted out to the urban poor and at the same time denying leaders the responsibility to deliver on their mandate.”

“Accordingly, the leaders resolved yesterday that the so-called football game between the Political and Technical wings of KCCA is hereby called off.” Reads the statement
