As he seeks a new term as Uganda Rugby Union boss in the April elections, Godwin Kayangwe has vowed to tirelessly grow the game, among which is introducing U-20 and University rugby leagues.

Kayangwe, who is up against Phillip Kiboijana, feels his current term didn’t completely come to terms with the manifesto, as it got interrupted by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

“I want to return to the position and fully implement the remaining part of my strategy that was interrupted by COVID-19. We were active for two years instead of four,” he said in an exclusive interview with Nalubaale Sports.

“I want to start a U-20 league to enable younger players to get exposed before joining the different clubs and national teams. I want to do the same for universities,” he added.

Kayangwe envisages a tenure with financially stable clubs through commercialization and strengthening club structures.

“Our clubs need more support with commercialization and structures. We want to see them become self-sustaining. We can only achieve this by empowering them with the necessary skills and knowledge.”

In his current tenure, Kayangwe oversaw the National Rugby 7s side clinch the African title last year.

Also, under his watch, Uganda hosted two Women’s international tournaments, one inside Covid 19 period and the other outside.
