“This club must find possible ways of earning money. For us, we failed to pay taxes because most sponsors prefered already booming things, therefore members please sit down and draft ways of earning money to put this club at a higher level,” said Kavuma.

However on the other hand, Rajiv said they are going to make the club one of the biggest not only in Uganda but also in the whole world.
