All those planning to head to Mandela National Stadium this (Saturday) evening for the Uganda Cranes and Tanzania Taifa Stars game, you might have to go naked.
Police has banned all political party colours and symbols at the stadium. In a statement released by spokesman Emilian Kayima, anyone with colors symbolising a political party won’t be granted access to the game.
Some of the party colours in Uganda are; yellow for NRM, red for UPC, green for DP among others.
Interestingly yellow and red also represent Uganda.
And the Uganda Cranes team is expected todon red for the game.
Here is a statement from police:
“There is a very important game at Namboole between our team and Tanzania.
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. The police and sister security agencies will as usual provide security for all before, during and after the game. Our specialised security units are on ground to ensure that security is guaranteed.
All high ways, round about and Namboole will have uniformed security to ensure that no crime what’s over is occasioned on anyone. Follow guidelines as given by security and FUFA officials.”
