They are now aiming to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010. “The players know that we have not been in the competition for seven years, obviously as some of them were here and they know the story. “And they know that what happened in the past is irrelevant.

A Congolese footballer has landed back in his home country after a political gesture appeared to cost him his place at a top Rwandan club. Rayon Sports says it has "parted ways" with midfielder Heritier Luvumbu. Hours earlier he had been given a six-month ban over a gesture that expressed solidarity with war victims in the Democratic Republic of Congo. DR Congo, the US and UN experts accuse Rwanda of backing the M23 rebel group, which is causing havoc in the east. Rwanda has consistently denied the allegation. Hundreds of thousands have fled their homes in the past fortnight. Luvumbu landed in trouble after pointedly covering his mouth with his left hand while pointing his fingers to his temple, mimicking a gun, after scoring from a free-kick in Sunday's game against Police FC.

Speaking on a Nnalubaale Sports Twitter Space on Wednesday night, Nile Rapids captain Tina Akello said, “The time for some women’s games has to be adjusted. It’s difficult to attract fans for the women’s games when they are played under the hot sun. When there are no other games, they should at least be played at 4 (p.m. local time).” Women’s rugby matches in Uganda are usually played from noon and earlier in some cases. This is due to a shortage in rugby-ready facilities which forces a tight schedule that prioritises the men’s matches. On a clear sunny day, which Ugandan weather never runs short of, the noon time slot is one of the least desirable for both players and fans alike. Thus, women’s matches are usually played to a handful of fans, most of whom are fellow players (men and boys)...

If you happen to sniff any bickering between Dr. Hilderman and his master, Bobi Wine, which might result in his knifing soon, then don’t be surprised. Hilderman’s latest dig aimed at the celebrated National Unity Platform (NUP) sweetheart might land him into hot soup! The legislature is convinced beyond reasonable doubts that Bobi Wine was speaking out of ignorance when he attacked Eddy Kenzo over the UGX 34 billion he received on behalf of the Uganda National Musicians Federation (UNMF).

The legislature says he repeatedly advocated for the money from the government, and he was happy w...
