Yesterday evening, H.E YK Museveni hosted the Uganda National Team and officials after their two weeks away mission in Cairo Egypt for the 32nd edition of the African Cup of Nations.
The fired Uganda Cranes’ were stopped at the round of 16 after losing 1-0 to Senegal national team last Friday at Cairo International Stadium.
In this meeting, President Museveni hailed the entire national team’s performance in this campaign and encouraged them for better results in the next event also promising constant support from the government.
He also pledged U$D 1M (at least Shs 3.7 billion) to the players and the officials who represented Uganda in this year’s tournament.

“I’m very happy the @UgandaCranes went up to the last 16. I know we will perform better next time. I will organize 1m dollars with the government to distribute it among the players and officials. Of course, the officials will not get as much as the players,” President Museveni wrote.
Although we didn't win all our fixtures, we made a good effort and achieved some reasonable success. I don't know how Senegal got that goal. I see our players are all fit young people. All they need is more stamina. I thank the team once again. pic.twitter.com/LqyuLUQnro
