ARUA- Motocross in Uganda is one of the sports that got to a halt due to the macabre of COVID -19. However, this has not deterred some great thinkers in the game to use the time to plan for the development of the speed game.
On Tuesday, January 5, a major signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Federation of Motorsport Clubs of Uganda ( FMU) and Development Infrastructure (DI) under the leadership of Joel Aita.
For those who understand the sport, this is timely since Westnilers are known for adding more flair, talent and undisputed support in games.
Speaking at the ceremony, Joel Aita said that the construction is starting any time soon since the paperwork has already been done and FMU has it on the calendar this year.
He also revealed that the facility is seated on 15 acres and only 5km from Arua City which is just a short distance thus will enable supporters to come through.
Relatedly, Aita is also the Chairperson of Arua Hill Sports Club and has become a great son of the soil in promoting talent and sports in West Nile and beyond.
The FMU President, Mr. Dipu Ruparelia said that they had promised to extend the sport all over the country and have had competitions in buganda, busoga, Ankole and having added up Arua will help to promote and boost talent in this country.
On behalf of the National Council of Sports, Mr. Donald Rukare, the chairperson appealed to other sports federations to emulate the path FMU has taken and also encouraged them to get partners on board.
One of the rider parents and a member of FMU, Amos Wekesa welcomed Arua city on board and highlighted how motocross stimulated the demand for products and services in Fort Portal the tourism city before appreciating Joel Aita for being practical and creating a difference.
The Federation has organised National Rally Championships in Kapeeka, Mbarara, Jinja, Masaka, Hoima, Fort Portal, Garuga in Entebbe and now Arua with hopes of the season starting on March 5- 7, 2021 in Masaka.
