Equipment was donated by the Africa Hockey Federation and cleared by NCS which paid sh3.5m in taxes
NCS Secretary General Nicholas Muramagi has advised Uganda Hockey Association (UHA) to identify the sports equipment they can purchase for talent development instead of waiting for donations.
Muramagi made the remarks after handing over equipment worth $11,000 (sh37m) to the federation secretary Philip Wafula.
“You should identify some equipment which we are able to purchase for development instead of waiting to beg for donations” Muramagi stated.
“I also challenge you to prepare a team that will qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The equipment which included 100 sticks, 100 balls and goalkeeping kits were donated by the Africa Hockey Federation and cleared by NCS which paid sh3.5m in taxes.
Wafula said that receiving the equipment is good for the sport and that they will put them to good use to be able to produce good talent.
