The multi-purpose center will apparently accommodate a number of games such as boxing, Volleyball, Handball, Netball, Indoor football (Futsal), and Basketball. It will also host community activities such as communal meetings, parties, and other festivities.
A Germany-based organization, Ameropa Foundation, exclusively funded the construction of the Kamwokya Community Sports Centre.
They officially launched it on Tuesday, 3rd May 2022. The chief guest was Moses Muhangi, the president of the Uganda Boxing Federation (UBF).
“It is good for Kamwokya Community, even the government of Uganda doesn’t have this, save for Namboole. So, I ask Ameropa, don’t stop here, even other areas need this, Kawempe, Bwaise and the like. The only survival for Youths now is sports. I am a boy from Kamwokya, grew up from here. I am happy to see that we have such a facility here, it will help to grow the talents in Ghetto. Ghetto is a centre of talents, we saw a number of talents from here, the likes of Bobi Wine,” Moses Muhangi said.
Francis Mbaziira is the facility director and recollects the humble beginning since 2021 when the works started.
Celine Miescher, the president Ameropa Foundation lauded the workers who worked tirelessly to see the centre come to completion. Apparently, 15 of the 70 workers were women.
Further, Kamwokya Community Sports Center will host the 2022 East African Netball Club championship which starts off this weekend.
It will also host the first-ever Africa Level C Netball Umpire’s course in Uganda. Namibian facilitator, Julieta Emarencia Esterhuizen will instruct it.
