Last month, President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni, announced that the government will charter a plane to fly fans to cheer up the Cranes in Morocco.

Charles Bakkabulindi, the State Minister in-charge of Sports is going to be the cheer leader of Uganda Cranes, which faces Senegal on September 7th in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Marrakech, Morocco.
Bakkabulindi told Uganda Radio Network this morning that he will be traveling to Morocco on Wednesday ahead of the fans who will travel aboard a plane chartered by government.
 
The minister said he will be the cheer leader because the match means lot for Uganda, which has never qualified for the World Cup and last appeared in the Africa Cup of Nations in 1978. He appealed to the fans who will be traveling to Morocco on a charted flight, to bring out their best in supporting the team because the Senegal game means a lot.
