The event due at Lugogo starts on January 15. In a brief meeting with the press on Saturday, boxing federation president Roger Ddungu said that though Mugerwa had been cleared of the offence earlier, he showed gross indiscipline ahead of preparations for the All Africa Games. â€œHe was cleared but went on to show acts of indiscipline before the All Africa Games,â€Ddungu said.
