‘We are pleased with the process of documenting Melvyn’s paperwork in order to obtain a national passport for him.’ The Immigration Department has been quite helpful. Hon. Mike Mukula, an avid football fan, has also been of tremendous assistance in assisting FUFA in obtaining the player’s passport.

We are hopeful that the sole missing German government paper will be provided in time for the player to play for Uganda Cranes against Botswana on June 4th, 2016.’

On Monday in Harare, the Cranes will be joined by two players who will fly on Ethiopian Airlines.

Denis Onyango and Yassar Mugerwa will arrive on Tuesday morning, while Tony Mawejje will arrive on Tuesday afternoon.
