The newly elected Uganda Volleyball Federation will have less than three weeks to host the U20 Africa Nations Volleyball Championship.

This comes following the Sunday’s polls where Sadik Nasiwu returned as the country’s Volleyball boss.

Sadik last headed the federation in 2016 before he was elbowed out by Hadija Namanda, who came a distant third in the polls.

Nasiwu garnered a massive 227 votes with Eddie Okila, who for the third time missed the chance to head Uganda Volleyball, came second with 27 votes while Namanda had 20 of the total of 284 votes cast.

Nasiwu will be assisted by Abdallah Kiggundu and Salma Otika as the first and second vice presidents, respectively.

Godwin Nakaana will be the Secretary General.

But the new regime just have 18 days to organize the continental event which will be played from February 18th to 26th in Kampala.

The winner will represent Africa at the 2021 FIVB U20 World Championship.

Participating teams are expected to arrive in Kampala on 18th February 2021 for the technical meeting the following day. The event will run from 20th to 25th.

Meanwhile, Cameroon, Congo RDC, Tunisia and host Uganda have confirmed participation so far.
