KAMPALA. Uganda Police Force have warned that no party politics will be allowed at Mandela National stadium (Namboole) today as Uganda Cranes host their Tanzanian counterparts Taifa Stars for their second Group L match of the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers.
Emilian Kayima, Police Spokesperson in a statement on Saturday says that police and sister security agencies will as usual provide security for all before, during and after the game.
“Football has always been a unifier and it should be the same this time round proving our spirit of love, the East African Community and our Pan Africanism. Therefore, we don't expect any party colours, party symbols and politics at Namboole Stadium,” Kayima said.
Kayima who says that their specialised security units are already on ground to ensure that security is guaranteed adds that all highways, roundabouts and Namboole will have uniformed security "to ensure that no crime is occasioned on anyone".
He urged the public to follow the guidelines as given by security and FUFA officials.
The game is scheduled to start at 4:00pm.
Uganda lead Group L with three points after winning Cape Verde 1-0 last year, while Lesotho and Tanzania are joint second after they drew 1-1 in their opening game. The 2019 AFCON will be held in Cameroon in August.
