False figures in relation to money for renovation of Namboole stadium

Claim

Gov’t to renovate Namboole stadium at $200 million

Author

Verdict
Incorrect
Go’vt provided only $18.7 for the renovation exercise

The claim that Mandela National Stadium (Namboole) will be renovated at US$200 million is false.

The claim was made by Nelson Lufafa who through his tweet stated that government provided $200 million to renovate the 40,000 seater stadium.

This is however not true. Government reimbursed $18.7 million (approx.Shs67 billion) for renovation of the stadium.

The figures stated by Lufafa are thus outrageous and misleading.
