LOCAL basketball governing body FUBA are confident Steven Omwony will join the menâ€™s team at next monthâ€™s Zone Five Africa Basketball Championship qualifiers in Rwanda. Omwony is on a professional stint in the Seychelles.
â€œThough he is playing in the Seychelles, Iâ€™m confident he will want to come because playing at the tournament will give him the chance for more exposure,â€ said organising secretary Joseph Manano.
