Boxing, Football bosses applaud Bakkabulindi for Sports development

DAVID GOMBE

Uganda Boxing Federation Moses Muhangi and Federation of Uganda Football Associations first Vice President Justus Mugisha have applauded Charles Bakkabulindi for tremendously serving sports.

In his remarks Muhangi said,

“I thank Mr. Bakkabulindi for supporting sports and as the Uganda Boxing Federation we have tremendously achieved in the two years we have been with him”

“We always have disagreements but all what matters is developing Sports in the country.”

Mugisha who represented the FUFA President at the NCS end of year dinner held at Lugogo hockey grounds on Wednesday hinted that Bakkabulindi was instrumental in the development of Women Football in the Country

“I remember when he was appointed, the first step he did was to disband FUFA and he did it in a proper way and that was the start of development in football.

“Uganda did not have women football when he came in the ministry and he advised us that we must make women football a must sport. He leaves at the time when we have won both the COSAFA and CECAFA U17 Women Championship.”

Bakkabulindi was substituted by Hamson Denis Obua as Minister of State for Sports at the end of last week to end his 14 year tenure in the ministry.
