A day after Uganda, along with Kenya and Tanzania won the hosting rights for the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations, hugely disputable lawyer Male Mabirizi Kiwanuka has contested the decision.
Mabirizi wants Uganda stripped off her hosting rights, citing various reasons many of which, political.
In a letter addressed to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Mabirizi claims; "Uganda is devoid of any democratic leadership."
He adds: "A person who finds him/herself in Uganda is not assured of fair trial since civilians are dragged to military tribunals."
Mabirizi further cites: "militarized streets, lack of freedom of assembly, corruption, sectarianism and nepotism" as the other politically motivated reasons for his claims.
