With less than two weeks until the start of the Africa Gold Cup competition, Rugby Cranes lock John Wandicho has called it quits from the national team.
The Mongers player, left out of the team that faced Kenya, revealed on his Facebook page on Tuesday that he won’t be going on with national duty.
“To all my family, friends and fans, I’ve decided to quit the national team due to personal reasons. Thanx for your support,” read the Facebook post put up Tuesday afternoon.
While Wandicho didn’t reveal his reasons for quitting, it is said, by some of his pals on the team, that he got frustrated after being dropped for the Kenya game and didn’t see himself travelling for the away game.
Charles Uhuru and Byron Oketayot have become mainstay locks in the team while Robert Aziku was handed his first cap over the weekend and looks set to play a big part ahead of the African Cup.
Former Rugby Cranes captain Mathias Ochwo is also in the fold having made a comeback to the team early this year.
However, Wandicho will still feature for his club side Sadolin Mongers in the league.
Uganda will take on Kenya on June 24 in their first game of the Africa Gold Cup.
The match up will also double as the return leg of the Elgon Cup.
