However, reliable sources have confirmed that the Federation has failed to secure visas for the players in time.

The development has left the players hard done as they miss an opportunity to showcase their ability at a world stage.

The two teams, four boys and as many girls, have been training at Indoor Arena in Lugogo since last week.

It should be remembered that Uganda had qualified via a wild card from FIBA.
