In a bid to nurture football talents in Mityana South Namungo Sub County, Ssekito Peter has organized a football tournament that will be held annually from September to December.
The tournament officially kicked off over the weekend and Ssekito Peter the brain behind this initiative believes that the tournament is to help youths in the community showcase their talents.
“I did prepare this tournament to help the youths who still locked out of schools due to the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic. Through this football competition, the youths will be engaged in building their talents and be part of community development since I believe they are key to the development of this country. We must not give them chance to remain idle because an idle mind is a devil’s work shop.”
Ssekito also believes that the tournament will act as the feeder to Ssingo Ssaza team
“This tournament will also nurture talents that will facilitate Ssingo in the Masaza tournament. We also want our constituency to produce best players that can help both the county and at the national level, so the journey has officially began.”
The tournament is expected to attract around to 40 teams which will include Kiteete FC, Bombers FC, Namungo FC, Mugulu FC and Kakoola FC among others.
