Peace Proscovia, renowned She Cranes star, has been appointed as part of the four-member normalization committee tasked with overseeing netball activities in Uganda. This development follows World Netball’s advice to the Uganda Netball Federation (UNF) Executive Committee, led by President Sarah Babirye Kityo, to step down due to governance and leadership challenges.

The National Council of Sports (NCS) withdrew UNF’s certificate of recognition, citing persistent issues with governance and adherence to laws and statutes. World Netball, in response to these challenges, recommended the formation of a normalization committee to manage day-to-day operations until new elections are held.

Chaired by Moses Mwase, Uganda Olympic Committee Vice President, the committee includes Peace Proscovia as the athletes’ representative, along with Cecilia Anyacoti of the National Sports Council and Leticia Namutebi, a member of the Commonwealth Games Athletes Commission.

In a related development, the High Court rejected a request for an injunction by Sarah Babirye Kityo and the UNF Executive Committee against the National Council of Sports. The court ruled that Kityo and the UNF Executive lacked the authority to bring such an application, and the mandate belonged to the registered Trustees of the Uganda Netball Federation. The application for a temporary injunction was dismissed, and the court ordered the 1st Applicant (Kityo) to pay the costs of the application to the Respondent.
