The three Ugandan football who travelled for the high profile AIBA World Championships last month in Hamburg, Germany have gone missing and not returned back in the country.
The spokesman of the Uganda Boxing Federation (UBF), David Kavuma has confirmed that David Ayiti, Geoffrey Kakeeto and African welterweight champion Muzamiru Kakande are determined to stay in Germany as they seek for greener pastures.
"The boxers told me that it was an opportunity for them to better their lives by staying back in Germany and sign contracts for a club in the National League. I could not stop them because they were determined to stay," explained Kavuma who was also the team manager.
Super heavy weight boxer Ayiti was not included in the draws under un-clear reasons, while Kakande lost to USA captain Quinton Randall in the first round and Kakeeto in the bantam weight suffered defeat to Nicaragua's Angel Jarquin.
But the National Council of Sports (NCS) has made it clear that they need a report from UBF to explain all that happened in Germany.
Dr Patrick Ogwel, assistant secretary general of NCS told URN at their headquarters in Lugogo that they have also started investigations into the matter.
"We cannot allow a national team to be handled like this. We funded the team and expected them to return after the competition," added Ogwel.
