What you need to know:

  • For the last two weeks I have spared space to congratulate Tusker FC for their performance this season
  • My curiosity has been drawn from a statement from the federation this week that Tusker will be representing the country in the Cecafa Club Championships
  • The federation says Tusker are on top of the league and therefore they will represent the country because so much has changed since the 2020 championships failed to take place because of Covid-19

I am writing this from far away in Accra. This is the home of some of Africa’s greatest footballers. Who can forget the great Abedi Pele or Asamoah Gyan? More of them in my next week’s column. But for today let me focus on our local football.
