Uganda Revenue Authority-URA yesterday closed off Nakivubo Stadium over accumulated tax arrears amounting to Shillings 484 million. According to Abdusallam Waiswa, the URA Debt Manager, the tax arrears date back from 2013 up to date.
The body will be taken to Nakivubo Stadium tomorrow Monday at 1pm after a requiem mass to be held at All Saints Cathedral Nakasero Kampala, a programme released by the Federation of Uganda Football Association FUFA shows.
The Stadium manager, Ivan Lubega, said the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) only requested for a specific date that the match would be played. He added that it was a short notice request by Fufa and because they are left with a few days to prepare the surface to meet International requirements, the Kobs could not be allowed to use the pitch.
The money was collected from St. Balikuddembe Park yard vendors, Kikuubo trading center, Ravens Hotel at Kisekka Market, and Nakivubo stadium which was a central point for all traders from Kampala arcades and well-wishers.
The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has this morning closed Nakivubo Stadium over accumulated debts. In a communication, URA said that Ugandaâ€™s oldest stadium had been closed till debts amounting to 385 million shillings are paid.
