The National Council of Sports has withdrawn the certificate of recognition from the Uganda Netball Federation.
The development was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon in a press release from National Council of Sports.
“The National Council of Sports regrets to announce that we have today withdrawn the certificate of recognition previously issued to the Uganda Netball Federation and that the Federation will no longer conduct any business related to the sport of Netball on behalf of the Government of Uganda.
“The decision aries out of the persistent governance and leadership challenges that have engulfed the UNF, and due to the failure by the UNF to follow laws of Uganda and their own statutes.”
