Uganda's team to the All Africa Games confirmed their travel to Maputo after a sh260m boost by president Yoweri Museveni at the flag handover at State House Nakasero yesterday.
Fears that part of the team would not be able to make it for the All Africa Games because of a sh260m deficit, were allayed by the president.
The president, dressed in a light blue shirt, grey trousers and black sandals restated the advantage of sports and then answered state sports minister Charles Bakkabulindi’s plea for funding.
“I will raise the balance,” the president said “It is now my honour to hand over the flag to the team captain.”
