Uganda national basketball team; the silverbacks had been denied exit from the Kigali-based Park Inn Hotel after failing to clear their hotel bills. This happened after Uganda had lost their quarterfinals match against Cape Verde forcing them to leave the tournament earlier than expected.
The ministry of sports and education was silent about the matter but yesterday evening the first son who is also the commander of land forces in Uganda; General Muhoozi Kainerugaba came to the rescue of silverbacks after clearing over 180 million Uganda shillings in hotel bills.
However; other sources have it that it was not the first son that cleared the bills. It was the Federation of Rwanda basketball associations that actually cleared the bill. Though the Federation of Uganda basketball associations gave the credit to Lt. Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba; It is still unclear who exactly cleared the bill but one thing is clear; the Ugandan team is free to exit Rwanda without any debt to clear.
