Musonye sure of ‘good competition’



Cecafa secretary general Nicholas Musonye is confident this year’s edition will have “very good competition.”

Musonye was speaking in Kampala on Wednesday after releasing the fixtures for the upcoming Cecafa Tusker Cup that runs from November 24 to December 8.

“We will have a very good competition,” said a certain Musonye, adding, “I’m very certain that we will have very healthy competition.

“Malawi (the guest team) was our member before and they have always been very good competitors in our championships.

“Uganda is a good team, Ethiopia is a good team, Rwanda is a good team, Kenya is a good team and Tanzania is a good team.”

Musonye added: “So in all, all teams here are good teams and if we are talking standards of the competition, we will not regret.

“We will have a very good tournament. It will depend on how we organize ourselves and how we promote it.”

Uganda, the record winners at 12 times, will open against fierce neighbours Kenya on November 24, with group-mates Ethiopia and South Sudan doing the early kick-off.
