Ahead of the much anticipated President Museveni’s state of the nation address on COVID-19, cabinet has approved the resumption of all sports activities but without fans.
With football activities going on smoothly in other countries, Uganda has not been able to allow football and other sports related activities to take place since March.
According to a close source, the president was advised to give sports a greenlight since it can be played without fans and all players and club officials will be subjected to thorough testing.
