Bishop Comboni College-Kambuga in Kanungu district has been instructed to return the trophy of the Kigezi zonal Uganda Secondary Schools Sports Association boys' championship (USSSA games) due to the discovery of fielding an ineligible player. 

During the games held last week (April 7, 2024) in Rukiga district, Bishop Comboni College-Kambuga emerged as the winner for the Kigezi region, defeating Makobore High School from Rukungiri in a penalty shootout after a goalless draw.   

However, allegations arose while playing against St. Mary’s College Rushoroza from Kabale district and Bugagari Secondary School from Rukungiri district, accusing Bishop Comboni College Kambuga of fielding an ineligible player named Edmond Tumukunde.

Administrators from St. Mary’s College Rushoroza and Bugagari Secondary School provided evidence that Tumukunde had used fake documents, including a false date of birth that did not match his national identity card information. Onesmus Rukundo Rurihoona, the Chairperson for USSSA games in the Kigezi region, has confirmed that investigations have found Bishop Comboni College Kambuga guilty of the accusations. 

As a result, the school has been instructed to return the trophy to Makobore High School, the rightful winner. Additionally, Bishop Comboni College Kambuga has been suspended from participating in the games until further notice. 

Consequently, Makobore High School, Bugangari Secondary School, St Paul's Secondary School Bukinda, and St Mary's College Rushoroza will represent Kigezi at the national level competitions to be held in Masaka city.
