Ugandan team jets in, screened for Ebola

Filed under: Sports |

Zambia’s medical authorities on Friday morning screened the Uganda National Team players for Ebola virus disease as they jetted in for the first encounter against the African champions, Zambia.
The whole entourage underwent medical tests as they arrived in the Copper mine city of Ndola where the first qualifier for 2013 Africa Cup encounter will be played this Saturday.
Ebora has claimed a number of lives in that country and last month President Yoweri Museveni had asked Ugandans to avoid in physical contact including hand checks when the deadly disease broke out in the Eastern Africa country.
Meanwhile the Ugandan coach says his team was looking forward to a positive result.  Speaking upon arrival at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport at 10am, Bobby Williamson said his intention was to win.
“We will see how the game goes here,” the Ugandan coach said. “We have good intentions to win. We hope to finish up the job in Kampala.”
