IGG orders NCS to release Netball Federation funds

The Inspectorate of Government (IGG) has ordered National Council of Sports to release the funds meant for the Uganda Netball Federation (UNF).

NCS has for a long time made accusations that the Sarah Babirye Kityo led federation refused to account for Ugx425,014,000 directed for Pent Series and the African Championship trip to Namibia.

However, UNF has time and again denied receiving the said funds, as she signed and accounted for Ugx186,374,110.

“This is to direct you (NCS) to transfer the funds meant for Uganda Netball Federation within seven (7 days) of receipt of this directive upon the transfer,” the letter from the Deputy IGG, Patricia Achan Okiria directed.

“The accountabilities for the above funds and report regarding the tournaments were dully submitted to the National Council of Sports on 25/11/2021. The funds were remitted on 28/10/2021,” the letter cleared.

UNF is high up in gears preparing for the World cup bound for July in South Africa.

Other notable tournaments include the Africa Netball Championships bound for November 2023 in Uganda.

“Withholding of Uganda Netball Federation funds on allegations of unaccounted for funds by National Council of Sports on unsubstantiated allegations is counterproductive and thus, malicious.”

“Uganda Netball Federation needs adequate funds and preparations to guarantee success in both tournaments.”

The latest developments put the NCS Secretary General supremo Benard Ogwel in an extremely complicated position.

He’s already under fire from various other Federations for alleged biased allocation of funds.
