US based Professional squash player Ibrahim Nyanzi is eyeing a return to Uganda to try and boost the sport during the New Year as he sets his eyes on rising up the ranks.
“I will be coming to Uganda in March for a holiday this year,” Nyanzi told Kawowo sports. “I won’t be playing any tournament, but want to come and motivate and help the players in Uganda with their game.”
