Uganda Cranes captain Denis Onyango has added to earlier voices from other players asking President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to fill his promise.
The Cranes players that took part in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations revealed that they have not received the $1M that was promised by President Museveni.
Museveni made the promise last year as a token of appreciation for Uganda Cranes who had reached the knockout stages in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
“In these tough Covid19 times with everyone trying to fend for themselves, we find the timing right to remind you as the No.1 citizen of the pearl of Africa about the $1m promise soon after our respectable show during the Africa cup of Nations in Egypt last year,” reads Onyango’s message, in part, on his social media platforms.
“As captain, my teammates have been on my neck requesting me to remind you of the promise.
“We feel frustrated, unhappy and somewhat under appreciated that our token of appreciation hangs in balance. We truly believe that you will come to our rescue soonest as you have done in the past.”
Uganda reached the knockout for the first time since 1978 AFCON before getting knocked out by Sadio Mane’s Senegal.
