Uganda Badminton Association Chairman Shaban Nkuutu Muziransa has passed away.
“It’s true, our President is dead,” confirmed UBA CEO Simon Mugabi when contacted by this website.
Nkuutu died of Car Accident that happened on Kayunga Road at Naminya, Buikwe District on Saturday night when his vehicle rammed into a trailer carrying Sugar Canes.
Burial is tentatively set on Monday in Bugweri, awaiting official communication.
Nkuutu, a prominent Lawyer (Muziransa and Co. Advocates) replaced Oscar Kabona as the new UBA President, a position which was once held by William Tumwine among others.
Nkuutu was not so much known in the Badminton fraternity, despite being the Chairman, because of his busy schedule.
Uganda Badminton Association was created in the 1960s and is one of the recognized Associations by the National Council of Sports.
