KAMPALA – The Parliament of Uganda sports teams continue to shine at the 10th East African Community Inter-parliamentary games despite a loss by the men’s volleyball team.
Having led the East African Legislative Assembly in the first two sets (25-5 & 25-14), Uganda went on to lose by 3 sets (17-25, 24-26 and 10-15).
Uganda’s loss could be attributed to the absence of Hon Silas Aogon, Abbas Agaba and Hon Gaffa Mbwatekamwa who couldn’t play due to legislative engagements that they were attending to.
However, the other teams made up for this loss by winning all their games.
The ladies’ volleyball team defeated EALA by three sets to one while the men’s basketball team beat EALA 36-30.
In netball, Uganda defeated Kenya 53-23 in a game played on Thursday 12 December 2019.
In other results, Burundi men’s volleyball team defeated Tanzania three sets to two; Burundi ladies lost 3-0 and Tanzania defeated Burundi in basketball 63-49.
In Netball, Tanzania beat EALA 55-24.
On Friday, action shifts to Namboole Stadium and Lake Victoria Serena for athletics and golf respectively.
