Uganda: UBC to Telecast Afcon

Uganda Broadcasting Corporation has secured the exclusive rights to air all the matches of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations which kicks off on January 19 in South Africa.

Jane Kasumba, the national broadcaster's publicist, made the announcement on Monday, during a press briefing,

"We have procured all the rights to air the tournament and whoever wants to do the same will have to first get into contact with us or there will be repercussions".

Previously there have been wrangles, with radio stations that air the tournament without paying for the rights.
