Mbogo High, Kibuli SS Win Gold At 2022 FEASSSA Games

Uganda has once again maintained its head high in Badminton in the East African Region. Two gold medals were won at the 2022 Federation of East Africa Secondary Schools Sports Association (FEASSSA) Games in Arusha, Tanzania.

Kibuli Secondary School won the gold medal for the boys and Mbogo High School won the gold medal for the girls.

The Ugandan victors emerged unscratched from their round-robin games played against Kenya 1, Kakungulu Memorial School, Jaffery Boys (of hosts Tanzania) and Nabisunsa Girls’ team.

For either gender, Kenya 1 and Kakungulu Memorial High School emerged as first and second runners-up to take home silver and gold respectively.

Kibuli’s team went under the leadership of Joshua Muguluma, the head coach. The team had players like Samuel Wasswa, Expendito Emuddu, Jordan Leonard Abo, Arkubar Oduka, Ahmed Oduka, Aaron Ndaula, Bathem Kawesi and Tendo Mukalazi. Emuddu also emerged as the Most Valuable Player of the tournament for his explicit performances.

The success script according to Muguluma has everything to do with teamwork and dedicated service. He also applauded the players and school administration for supporting the sport within the school.

“We are excited to have won gold at the 2022 FEASSSA Games in boys’ Badminton. It was purely down to good preparations, teamwork and committed display throughout all the matches. I thank all the players and the school management for supporting Badminton and support in general” Muguluma said.

Meanwhile, Kibuli SS also managed to take gold in Hockey for Girls as well as Lawn Tennis for boys through Frank Tayebwa and Marvin Kiliwo. 35 schools ably represented Uganda in the different sports disciplines of Badminton, Hockey, Lawn Tennis, Football, Handball, Volleyball, Swimming, Athletics, Rugby (7s and 15s), Basketball (3X3 and 5X5), Netball, Goalball (among deaf) and Table Tennis.
