Kawempe Muslim head coach Moses Nkata was happy with success and confirmed they will always play their way even at the nationals when they face other champions from other districts.

 

We have achieved this because we have worked hard, we play well and believed we could do it. We know many eyes will be on us as Kampala Champions but we shall play our way we just pray we don’t loose any player to injury. Our target at the nationals is first to make it out of the group and we see how we shall progress probably up to winnig the title.

 

Kawempe Muslim head coach Nkata was pleased with the display

 

If we play well at nationals we can achieve anything. Even though we dont win the title we can have kids from the school summoned to the national Junior sides it would also be great positive. Nkata added.

 

The Kampala region finance director Director Abby Sentongo was delighted with the success registered in the region qualification campaign and pointed at just two challenges they have encountered.

We have had a lengthy tournament and I must say it has been a very good campaign, we haven’t encountered many problems because it is these schools that have managed to sponsor themselves. I want in a special way to thank Kibuli SS and Old Kampala for giving us playing grounds which we have used. All games( that include; handball, basketball, Volley ball and netball) have been successful finished and the winners are going to represent us in Arua, Lira and Gulu.

The few challenges we have got this time is the number of participanting schools, we got a few compared to the previous turn up in Kampala most especially in Makindye division where we used to get 12-17 schools but this time we had only 8. In central we used to have big numbers but this time we only had 5 schools. In Kawempe we often get around 12 schools, this time we only got 7 schools. We have also had a challenge on the movers, players that played in other regions have also come to our region and play.

 

The Kampala region tournament aimed  qualification for the National post primaries in Arua, started on 8th Match and climaxed today Saturday at Kibuli.

 

In other games played at Kibuli SS on Saturday evening, Kibuli boys and Nabisunsa girls won the Basketball titles.
