Bebe Cool also revealed in the same statement that his son was among the affected together with seven other players of the team.
“I, therefore, wish to express my disappointment and dismay that my son Alpha Thierry Ssali and other boys (7 altogether) who represented Uganda will not be sitting their final S.4 exams,” Bebe Cool said.
He also requested the education ministry to review the matter so as to help the national team members not to lose out their time and education.
