In a related development government is asked to put in place a policy that will ensure that all schools have play grounds.
Former Barcelona Patrick Kluivert says the play grounds are very crucial for a child’s mental and physical development.
While meeting over 50 children supported by UNICEF in Kampala before the game, Kluivert also appealed to children in schools with play fields to always use them in order to stay fit and active in class.
