Lira City mayor Sam Atul has asked government to consider constructing Akii Bua stadium to promote sports talent in Lango.

Atul while speaking on Tuesday at the launch of the National Ball games 2 tournament taking place at Dr Obote College and St Katherine Secondary school, Boroboro said the people of Lango have for long been waiting for the stadium to be constructed by government in vain.

Rev Canon Duncan Mugumya the Commissioner, Physical Education in ministry of education and sports said Akibua is among stadia in Uganda that government plans to construct and the project contract has already been awarded to a Chinese company awaiting its construction.

The head teacher of Dr Obote College, Dick Alengo asked government through the Uganda Secondary School Sports Association to also develop play grounds in schools to support nurturing of sports talent among students.

The National Ball game 2 games will run till 22 August 2022.
