Ugandan chairman sent packing
There was a major upheaval in Ugandan cricket when William Kibuuka Musoke was ousted as chairman of the UCA by Dr Kato Sebbaale at a feisty meeting in Lugogo.
Musoke has been a controversial figure and it was obvious from early on that he was in trouble, as a succession of speakers lined up to attack his tenure. "We have struggled with this game for long,” said John Naganda, who opposed Musoke’s re-election. “Seeing someone destroy it hurts. Those who are anti-cricket should go to hell," He also moved a motion to suspend discussing the accounts because they were received late.
The UCA was also attacked by Jasper Aligawesa, the general secretary of the National Council of Sports. "You must improve UCA's public image,” he said. “You should also bring an end to divisions in cricket."
When it came to the vote, Musoke and his committee were sent packing. Kampala’s New Vision described him as possessing an ability “to divide all that stood before him”.
