President Museveni has joined the football community in mourning the passing of Uganda Cranes legend Jimmy Kirunda.

“I have learnt about the death of Jimmy Kirunda, perhaps one of the greatest footballers our country has produced,” Museveni said on Tuesday.

“We all remember the major feat when he captained the national team to the Africa Cup finals in 1978.”

“We shall miss him. Condolences to his family and the football fraternity,” he added.
