The organizing Committee for the Kyokwijuka cup has put on hold all the preparations for the tournament which was slated for September 2021.
The move follows the most recent national address by the President of the Republic of Uganda on 18th June 2021 on the COVID-19 pandemic, and the new presidential directives that were issued accordingly.
According to Alexander Kyokwijuka the tournament’s organizer, the committee will give guidance as and when the preparations shall resume, depending on how the COVID19 situation unfolds.
Kyokwijuka urges all Ugandans, especially the people of Ndorwa East to continue observing all the Standard Operating Procedures in place, eat fruits like pineapples, yellow bananas, and the like, wear masks at all times when in the company of other people, and ensure to stay safe amidst this deadly pandemic.
He further calls on the young people in the sub counties of Maziba, Buhara, Kyanamira and Kaharo who are supposed to take part in the football tournament, are encouraged to keep doing personal training so as to be fit enough to take part in the games once they kick off any time after the lockdown.
