World Netball (WN) is aware that the National Sports Council of Uganda has withdrawn its recognition of the Uganda Netball Federation (UNF) due to its failure to adequately address significant governance issues.
In line with WN’s Articles of Association, a WN Member is required to hold the exclusive right to govern netball in its country.
WN is assisting the UNF in addressing the significant governance issues by establishing a Normalisation Committee to direct the UNF in the short term until such time a new executive be elected.
The current Executive of the UNF is required to step down immediately with no compensation for loss of office to enable the Normalisation Committee to direct fair and democratic elections.
Should the UNF not comply with the request made by WN, then WN reserves the right to suspend UNF from Membership.
WN will not take any media questions on this topic at this time.
