The Minister who received the former star players earlier this week on behalf of President Yoweri Museveni said it is an opportunity for Ugandan to be globally marketed.
The players are in the country as part of constructing an academy in collaboration with FC Barcelona as well as promoting Ugandan tourism. They have been trekking Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest since yesterday.
