relationship with their respective countries.

players will get a chance to play in the team for both local and
continental matches.

complains from local players that despite their great potential, they

term dividends will be satisfactory,” he noted.

Gilbert Kaze,Jean d’Amour Nkurunziza, and Harerimana Moussa, Uganda’s
