SPORT- Uganda Cranes players led by their Captain Denis Onyango have reminded President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of the promise he made last year when he met them appreciating their effort for reaching the Round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Denis Onyango posted;

Greetings from Uganda Cranes players,

Your Excellency President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

In these tough Covid-19 times with everyone trying to fend for themselves, we find the timing right to remind you as the No.1 citizen of the Pearl of Africa about the $1m (One Million Dollars) promise soon after our respectable show during the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt last year.

As a captain, my teammates (some already retired now) have been on my neck humbling requesting (others in a demanding tone because of the desperate times) me to remind you of the promise.

We feel frustrated, unhappy and somewhat under-appreciated that our token of appreciation hangs in balance.  We truly believe that you will come to our rescue soonest as you have done in the past.
