The KIU Titans head, defeated Grace Kwizera in the Presidential polls held on Sunday.

Sserunjogi got 37 of the 61 votes cast against Kwizera’s 24 for the biggest office in Uganda’s basketball.

Nasser who has been the body’s Vice President, replaces the outgoing Ambrose Tashobya who served three terms since 2011 – Tashobya was named the honorary President during the event.

Speaking shortly after the polls held at Uganda Olympic Committee Offices (UOC) offices in Lugogo, the victor claimed:

“I am excited abouty next journey, I think I won because of my good Manifesto that I presented. The theme of my campaign was grassroots development. I believe in grassroots because I think it is the foundation of the growth of every sport in this country.”

Speaking with one of the Print media, Sserunjogi was quoted:
“One of my focus areas will be on the National team structure. The one we have been using is not sustainable, we bring Americans and naturalise them; see, don’t get me wrong, it gas helped us to start from down going up, not the other way round. We shall focus on the U14, U16 and U18s.

” We just pick kids from school, train them for two weeks and then we are at a tournament. For example we bid to host the U16 Zone V qualifiers this year, we should have got them at 14.

“We need to get ‘big men’ early and nature them. We have to identify and look at their attitude, discipline and their character and then place them in basketball schools.”
