Bobby calls for calm as kenyans mourns over massacre

Ugandaís U-23 Kobs team returned to Kampala yesterday delighted with a job well-done in Nairobi.

Their 5-1 win over rivals Kenya virtually sealed their progress to the All Africa Games due in Maputo, Mozambique in September.

The two sides face-off in the return leg on July 9, but that could be more of a coronation party.

Kobsí remarkable victory came on the back of their 5-2 aggregate win over rivals Tanzania in the previous round. And with players such as Hamis Kiiza already counting five goals in the qualifiers, many Ugandans believe the current Kobs team is the perfect blend for the future Uganda Cranes team.

However, national coach Bobby Williamson thinks otherwise. The Scot argues that these players will need time to make it to the senior team ranks.

 "I would never say that now because they need experience to make it onto the senior team. They are young players, who still make mistakes and that can only improve with experience. I am only happy that they are professional in whatever they do at this point," Williamson said yesterday.

"Honestly I donít expect Kenya to score five goals against us in Kampala," he added.

Goals from Kiiza (two), Mike Mutyaba, Emma Okwi and an own goal from Hamphrey Ochieng, were enough to dump the Kenyans, who had equalized through Moses Alita.

Kenyans in tears
At the final whistle, fans besieged the Kenyan media to share their grief.

"It cannot continue this way. We want you (the media) to call upon fans to come out on the streets to protest the shame Football Kenya officials have brought on Kenyans. We want a big rally. One of these days we will make Nairobi ungovernable for the Government to hear our pleas," an angry fan bellowed.

"Ugandans have gone about their business quietly of building teams and are reaping the benefits," another said amid a cacophony of dissenting voices.

A police officer said: "I say, these losses make our work difficult but we must maintain law and order."
