After the reconstruction, the gym will be replaced by shops.

ChimpSport understands that promoters of boxing led by Emmanuel Mwesigwa have organized a peaceful demonstration this Friday in Kampala to protest the sell of the gym

“They would have told us about this development in time so as to prepare for relocation. As of now, we are not ready to shift boxing activities to any other place. That’s why we are calling on all boxers to participate in Friday’s demonstration,” said Mwesigwa.

He further blamed State Minister for Sports, Charles Bakkabulindi for falling short in securing recreational sports centres for different sports activities during his time as a minister.

“I thought since he was a footballer, Bakkabulindi would fully support sports activities but up to now we are still struggling. The struggle is not only in boxing but also football.”

Nakivubo Stadium Management this week rejected a request from FUFA to use the playground for a match between the national under-17 team and Seychelles on Saturday.

The game will now take place at Lugogo.
