Member of Parliament for Bukomansibi South Hon. Godfrey Kayemba Solo has pledged to contribute 1000 US Dollars in a drive to see Uganda Cranes participate in the upcoming CHAN tournament.

Kayemba is the shadow minister for sports in the Parliament and doubles as a players’ intermediary and a manager.

” Since football tournaments help our players to get exposure and later jobs. Am contributing 1000usd for our uganda cranes in the chan tournament Algeria. Let the drive begin”

The Bukomansibi South legislator said via his Twitter handle.

This comes after the FUFA President Hon. Moses Magogo dropped a bombshell that the Uganda Cranes team is likely to pull out of the CHAN tournament which will be played in Algeria next month.

Magogo said that the Ministry of Finance has not yet released the funds meant to facilitate the national team with the tournament fast approaching.

The tournament will be held in Algeria starting from the 13th of January.

Uganda is in group B alongside DR Congo, Ivory Coast and Senegal.
