thumb geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>“It’s upon Duncan to decide where to driver from because no one is restricting him as far as the game is concerned, prostate ” said Ray Kibira, doctor the Federation’s General Secretary.

Kibira was reacting to a statement Duncan authored to some journalists some days back affirming that he “may decide to drive from Kenya since he lost favour and trust from the current Federation leaders”.

He, however, noted that he would have to wait until FMU elections are done so that he can have the clear picture of the people coming into offices.

FMU elections are expected to take place in February next year.

According to Kibira, Duncan may run to Kenya for competition and all that, it has ever happened to motorsport fraternity in Uganda where almost all “good’’ drivers decided to drive from Kenya but “the game has to continue”.

“At the time Emmanuel Kato, Charlie Lubega, Charles Muhangi, Chippa Adams, Moses Lumala and others retired from the game, everybody would think that the game is no more but now Ssebuguzi is reigning. So, the Federation can’t get scared of his departure,” added Kibira.

Drivers whose ban was lifted may face hard time in taking back any matter concerning with the game of motorsport to courts of law as they signed a memorandum of understanding with the Federation that will prevent them from taking matters to courts of law.

Jack Wavamunno, who was the first president of FMU, advised drivers to avoid the side of politics in the game but just stick to the game itself so as to leave a decent legacy after retiring from the game.

“You can’t be a lawmaker and at the same time a driver. Let them settle in the game for a decent legacy that will keep them into the game even after retiring,” said Wavamunno.

Meanwhile, FMU has already designed next year’s calendar which has already been sent to all clubs affiliated to FMU.

“I sent to some of the clubs the draft of the calendar and in the mean time, they will be informing the Federation anything that can be adjusted to make it a complete calendar,” said Kibira.

The endorsement of the calendar will come after assessing all the events that have been happening in this ending year’s calendar.
