Uganda: League Games Secure Grounds

The Uganda Rugby Union has secured Kampala Rugby ground for league games this season.

This is after the organisers of the league decided to postpone its start following the non-availability of the Kampala rugby ground. Games at Kampala rugby ground will begin in three weeks. This is the time that has been given to allow the ground's new turf to get ready for use. Kampala rugby ground, which was sold to an investor in 2011, is home to Pirates, Kobs and Rhinos rugby clubs.

However, its sale angered the Rugby Union assembly, forcing them to suspend four executive members - Steven Ojambo, Sam Ahamya, John Musoke and Henry Musoke - pending an inquiry to investigate the circumstances under which the members sold the ground.
