By Emmanuel Sekago

In a significant move to bolster the development of sports across the nation, the National Council of Sports disbursed a substantial financial support package totaling UGX 29,917,952,887 to various National Sports Associations for the fiscal year 2022-2023.

This allocation underscores the government’s commitment to promoting sports at both national and grassroots levels, aiming to foster talent, enhance competitiveness, and elevate the nation’s standing in the global sporting arena.

However, concerns have been raised regarding the transparency and accountability of some recipient associations.

According to documents seen by wallnetnews out of the 51 national sports association that received financial support only 12 sports association have audited books of account, held assemblies, have activity calendars but 39 sports associations. 

It has come to light that  lack audited books of accounts, fail to convene assemblies, and operate without structured activity calendars or national leagues.

These shortcomings raise pertinent questions about the effective utilization of the allocated funds and the overall governance within these associations.

Without proper financial oversight, transparent decision-making processes, and robust organizational structures, the intended objectives of the funding may be compromised, hindering the development of sports in Uganda.
