Uganda faces another setback as Namboole Stadium won’t be ready to host the upcoming World Cup qualifier matches against Botswana and Algeria on June 5 and 8. The ongoing renovations at the stadium, led by the UPDF Engineering brigade, have fallen short of expected standards, according to a report disclosed by Parliament.

Opposition Chief Whip John Nambeshe expressed disappointment, stating that the stadium works are non-compliant and haven’t received approval. Despite earlier assurances from Sports Minister Peter Ogwang, it’s now clear that Namboole won’t be able to host the games. Shadow Minister of Sport Geofrey Kayemba Solo reiterated this stance.

This development contradicts Ogwang’s previous promises and adds to the series of delays in Namboole’s reopening. Consequently, Uganda might have to seek alternative venues for their World Cup qualifiers, continuing the trend of hosting international matches abroad over the past year.
