Sports Minister Commends Armed Forces on Sports


The State Minister for Sports, Charles Bakkabulindi has commended the armed forces for embracing sports in their different institutions.


Bakkabulindi was on Monday speaking at the closing ceremony of the 14th edition of inter-forces games at Mandela National Stadium-Namboole, where he was the chief guest.


He says sports not only showcases talent, but also can be used as a tool for unity and cooperation.




A big number of Makerere University students turned out to watch the opening ceremony and other matches at the World University Netball Championships.

"We thought students would not turn up this much due to the previous strikes that were taking place the whole of last week and we thought these seats will be enough. But to our surprise, students have turned up in big numbers," said one of the organizers who preferred anonymity because he was not mandated to speak to the media.
