The weigh-in and medical checkup was done on Sunday at Lugogo and action started on Monday. UBF President Moses Muhangi, during the federation assembly last weekend, blamed National council of sports (NCS) and Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC) for the delayed preparation of the Bombers team selection which will culminate into poor preparations ahead of the qualifiers.
