On a weekend of elections, Michael Nuwagaba returns as Chairman, Jackson Kavuma elected Hon Secretary as the new Board takes shape in Uganda Cricket at Kati Kati
Uganda Cricket has kept faith with Michael Nuwagaba as he returns for another two years to run the affairs at Uganda Cricket Association. Nuwagaba who has been chairman for the last two years will get another two-year term to steer cricket on a path of attaining ODI cricket.
Last year, the cricket association under Nuwagaba enjoyed some memorable performances and he will be hoping that the next two years will see Uganda attain ODI Cricket and even play more successful tournaments across the continent.
In the other elective position, Jackson Kavuma the ACC delegate was elected unopposed to replace Alvin Bagaya Mboijana. Kavuma has served in the same place in the past and is not a stranger to how UCA operates and works. His combination with Michael Nuwagaba will be tasked with ensuring that Uganda Cricket remains a model organization, especially in terms of governance.
“We shall maintain the same speed on some of these things like focusing on the national teams as we push for higher rankings and getting close to ODI status,” said Nuwagaba after getting reappointed.
“The other issue is the one regarding facilities, we have been pushing for land and it’s something we shall maintain, we have collected more funds, but we want to improve our pathways to get more partners.” He added
Rita Tinka was also unopposed for the women’s representative position and as such retains her position. Women’s cricket has grown in leaps and bounds and now the Pearls have players signed contracts with salaries.
Who else will be working with Michael Nuwagaba?
The other election was for the two trustees who joined Steve Lumonya as Keshwalla Remnal and Steve Luswata were leaving due to the end of their terms. Moni Garch Paraminder and Enock Barumba were elected to join the trustee board of the Uganda Cricket Association.
The rest of the board is compromises of Benjamin Musoke (Tornado Delegate), Alvin Bagaya (Nile Delegate), Premal Yagnick (Premier Delegate), Ketan Shukla (KICC Delegate), Jeremy Kibuuka Musoke (Tornado Bee Delegate), Charles Waiswa (JACC Delegate).
