Total uncertainty has become part of the Masindi-based Cobra boxing club.
Since inception about a decade ago, Cobra-Boxing club survives on handouts, thanks to the lobbying skills of its patrons
Leading the struggle, yet staying furthest away from the ring was the elderly Philemon Kitara whose house to house lobbying skills, preparing boxing contests that attracted small crowds kept the club in one piece, although crawling.
Aged 78, Philemon Kitara died recently following a shot illness.
With lots of hope for the sport and his club, Kitara dedicated his courtyard and all his sons and grandsons to the game that soon also attracted neighbours and others to his home in Kirasa-Kampala in Masindi town council.
His death is now threatening the club's continuity.
However, Tony Kitara, the deceased's elder son and the club's most celebrated pugilist is making vows to carryon the mantle but he is uncertain if he can recall public support like was the case with his father.

With 15 fighters, Cobra-boxing club is now pre-occupied with preparing for the Lugogo national open on 17th July 2009 and want to dedicate their victory to their fallen father.
