Players get Cecafa bonus



The 20-man victorious Uganda Cranes were on Monday handed $14,000 (Shs37m) in bonuses for winning the 13th Cecafa Tusker Cup.

The followed the players earlier refusal to accept $500 (Shs1.3m) demanding for an increment of up to $1,000 (Shs2.7m) in the aftermath of the 2-1 defeat of Kenya on Saturday.

Fufa president Lawrence Mulindwa handed over the money in cash to team captain Hassan Wasswa at a luncheon organized in Kampala. The technical staff also received undisclosed bonuses.

Two goals, both clearly own goals according to television replays, gave Uganda a 2-1 victory over Kenya on Saturday as the Cranes went out of sight in terms of Cecafa titles. Uganda are now on 13, eight more than the closest challenges, Kenya.

The first of the two would-have been own goals, a Robert Ssentongo effort as he attempted to square the ball for Joseph Ochaya, was turned in by Anthony ‘Modo’ Kimani on 28 minutes.

Somehow, Ssentongo, who should have finished the tournament on four goals, got it. That gave him the top scorers’ award ahead of the Tanzanian pair of John Bocco and Mrisho Ngassa who were both tied on five. Kenya’s Joackins Otieno Atudo’s own goal late on then secured Uganda’s victory.
