The 35000-seater facility is also expected to house other sports activities like athletics, netball and bodybuilding.

Businessman, Hamis Kiggundu has previously scoffed at nay sayers whom he said have little or no knowledge about the project.

“The problem is that many of our people have so much negativity. People are so negative that even if you are doing something benefitting them, negativity will take charge of their brain. Many of them don’t reason. Some do it out of ignorance whereas other do it out of hate. One thing I do different from others is reason.”

Kiggundu told our reporter that he will not be distracted by anyone, adding that the Nakivubo Stadium project will continue as planned.
