UVF Clears Air on Daudi Okello Saga

The Uganda Volleyball Federation (UVF) has finally issued a statement on the looming saga about volleyball player Daudi OOkello rejoining Kampala Amateur Volleyball Club (KAVC).

While addressing the media on Thursday at the Uganda Olympic committee offices in Lugogo, patient UVF President Saddick Nassiwu indicated that the world volleyball governing body (FIVB) granted them the go ahead to allow Okello play for KAVC.

“With guidance from FIVB, we were advised that Daudi is free to play for any other club after his contract at Inatek in Rwanda expired in May this year,” said Nassiwu.

The saga stems from the fact that clubs in the national league and serie A division are protesting Kampala Amateur volleyball club.

According to Nassiwu, it is not that the federation is trying to favour KAVC but rather they are following the guidelines from FIVB.

“I want to make this clear that we are not in any way siding with KAVC as many people are perceiving it. We have no interest whatsoever but just trying to put everything in order,” he explained.

When quizzed about reports indicating clubs have threatened to pull out of the league, Nassiwu said they will stick to their earlier judgement.

“We are not doing this to please people. Because the majority are saying we should not allow Okello to play. We will not deviate from the FIVB guidelines to please people,” said Nassiwu.


Nassiwu said that if clubs fail to abide by the regulations the league will be suspense until an amicable solution is found.
