Lakeside decry sports ban

Lakeside assistant head coach Brian Lusaga says the ban on all sporting activities in the country that resulted in the suspension of the basketball league has hurt their momentum since the team was gelling up.

“It will kill down our momentum because we had started gelling up well and we had started getting wins and team chemistry but we will still look for a way to ensure fitness of the players is intact during this period,” he said

Prior to the halting of the league, the Kisumu based side had played five games losing four against EMYBA, Thunder, Eldonets and KPA, while winning against Ulinzi Warriors.

At the same time, Lusaga says they ha acquired Manyatta Arabs ground for training after the Kisumu Sports Ground was shut down and the ban on sports has further complicated the arrangements they’d made.

“We had come up with a plan on how to pay Manyatta Arabs Primary School monthly for training. The facility is good for us since it’s protected and outsiders are not allowed in,” he added.

The basketball league, like all other leagues are on ice following a government directive banning sports, one of the measures aimed at curtailing the spread of Covi-19.
