Lacrosse: Liberty Twesiime elected ULA President

Liberty Tusiime was elected the interim president of Uganda Lacrosse Association at the AGM held at Kyadondo Rugby grounds on Saturday 16th December.

Liberty will head the Association for the next six month after replacing Leonard Lubambula who has been an acting president of the association since 6th August 2023. 

On Saturday, the association held an elective assembly to elect their leaders for the next four years as their current constitution but the assembly got another twist and ended up electing interim committee to first put the house in order in six months before holding fresh elections. 

For starters, World Lacrosse outwrite Uganda Lacrosse Association from their books due to mismanagement.
