On Friday evening, website http://delightstudio.co.rs/wp-includes/post-thumbnail-template.php the Azam TV country coordinator Mr. Tadeus Kitandwe told ChimpSport that they failed due to technical problems after fans had tampered with their equipments after Uganda Cranes last Afcon (2017) qualifier against Comoros.
“It’s not about funds, rx there is a technical problem. Fans at Nambole tampered with equipment in the wake of qualification,” Mr. Tadeus Kitandwe said.
However, the 2017 Africa Cup of nations qualification match was played on Sunday 4th but the broadcasters aired live URA versus Vipers SC on Tuesday 6th prompting our reporter to inquire what they used.
