The suspension of all sports disciplines countrywide due to the Coronavirus pandemic could serve as a blessing in disguise for the development of sports facilities.
The Buganda Regional League side, Kajjansi United Football Club through its charismatic leaders since last Wednesday, used this lockdown period to embark on planting grass in the dry patches of Uganda Clays Playground.
The grass planting drive is a recurring job hence the main task at hand will be to maintain its growth with constant watering and weeding.
Kajjansi United Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ssemugenyi Abdu lauded the Kajjansi community for having loyal fans and players who are assisting in the re-greening process.
“This is a great effort by the management of Kajjansi United and players to actively get involved in the grass planting exercise of Kajjansi Uganda Clays play-ground. To the rest of the footballers who use this ground and the community, we are humbled,” said Semugenyi.
During this observation and maintanance time, Kajjansi United FC is expected to complete the rest of their Buganda regional league matches at the neighboring Paradise Gardens play ground in Bweya.
Other sports facilitates which have recently undertaken the re-greening process include the Gaddafi Barracks playground in Jinja, St George IV Stadium in Tororo, Luweero Kasana playground in Luwero, MUBS playground in Nakawa and Boma Stadium in Kiryadongo.
Currently, Kajjansi United is second placed in the Katonga group with 31 points rallying behind table leaders Buwambo with seven matches left to end the season.
Last year, the club fell short of advancing to the FUFA Big League (Second Division League) after losing 5-4 to Katwe United in the promotional playoffs final at Lugogo.
