Netball: Player Missing As She Cranes Return From England

Uganda’s senior National Netball team, the She Cranes returned from England where the side played with hosts in Vitality series.

The team made their way back on Tuesday but with one player missing.

Halima Nakachwa who plays both as a Centre (C) and Winger Attacker (WA) was not part of the team that returned from England.

The side, led by National Council of Sports’ general Secretary Bernard Ogwel and Uganda Netball Federation president Ms Susan Anek touched down at Entebbe International Airport at 2:00 PM.

“She was no where to be seen, she just escaped from the Hotel,” claimed one of the She Cranes player that preferred anonymity, when asked to comment about the matter.

Nakachwa, born July 23 1988 in Bombo played the three games as the She Cranes lost to England in a 3-0 whitewash.

The Prisons Netball team star player, was used as a Centre as the She Cranes lost 46-50 on Tuesday last last week, before playing as a Wing Attacker in game two (53-65) and game three (37-66) on Friday and Sunday respectively.

It should be remembered that in 2017, Rugby players Ramathan Govule, Brian Kikaawa and Fred Odur disappeared in Germany after the Oktoberfest tourney.


Earlier, Bombers David Ayiti, Muzamiru Kakande and Geoffrey Kakeeto stayed in Germany after representing Uganda in the World Boxing Championships.
