A section of news reporters who report general news today Saturday November 20, face off with the Parliamentary counterparts at Old Kampala Primary School play ground.
This is part of the on going efforts of reviving unity amongst the fourth estate through sports.
Journalists have for the past two years been devided due to leader’s scandal that arose when a section Uganda Journalist Association (UJA) members reportedly held fraudulent elections of new leaders when their counterparts were covering presidential campaigns.
Journalists have since traded accusations against their colleagues including others quitting membership of UJA.

“We are on a campaign of traversing the whole country and this time round we are in Kampala. Journalists it’s time we make this happen…united we stand,” he said.

“This is our ongoing initiative of uniting all journalists in the country through use of sports,” he added.
