Cranes yet to receive Nile Basin cash

Sudan and Tanzania have already received their dollars for participating in the Nile Basin tournament in Egypt last January but Uganda still remain in the dark.

Tanzania captain Shadrack Nsajigwa confirmed the players were paid. Another insider in the Sudanese camp said: "The players were paid $10, 000 while part of the remaining $40, 000 will go to the technical staff and federation work."

Little is, however, not letting regarding Uganda money. Uganda were 3-1 losing finalists to Egypt, which earned them $120,000 (Shs292m). Egypt won $150, 000 (Shs365m).

We could not ascertain whether DR Congo, who beat Kenya to the third place, and Burundi had got their share.

The money was to be wired to the respective federationsí accounts after the tournament but Egypt plunged into turmoil the following month as citizens demanded political reforms.

An air of uncertainty has ruled since with some claiming Fufa received the money but were not letting go. When contacted yesterday, Fufa CEO Edgar Watson maintained Uganda were yet to receive their share but called the sister associations in Tanzania and Kenya just to be sure.

"Itís true Tanzania got their $50, 000, with the players sharing $10,000," he said, "They got it before we played Guinea Bissau (June 4). But Kenya and us are yet to receive ours."

Watson added: "But we are hopeful. We met the Egyptian FA president at the Fifa conference and he promised they are working on it. I will communicate to them tomorrow (today) to remind them."
