Uganda Pool star Gumikiriza diagnosed with cancer

Alfred “Black Sheep” Gumikiriza is currently embedded in deep thoughts and so are his close family members as well as friends after he was diagnosed with cancer at its early stages.

Gumikiriza is a pool player at Ntinda Giants Pool Club and the Uganda Pool Cranes captain.

“The cancer was diagnosed early and treatment has started at the Uganda Cancer Institute in Mulago, Kampala. It is in its early stages on the right foot” Peter Kyobe, the Pool Association of Uganda official mouth piece disclosed to Entebbe Post.

Christened Black Sheep, Gumikiriza is arguably among the best pool players that have graced the pool table in Uganda, previously playing for Skin Samona Pool club before switching sides to Masaka based club Klein.

In 2012, Gumikiriza won the 2012 National pool open championship, the biggest pool event in Uganda.

He skippered Uganda at the 2019 Africa Black Ball Pool Championship held in South Africa.

Assistance to Gumikiriza can be channeled to the numbers; via mobile money (0773203978) and airtel money (0704203979) – under the names of Peter Kyobe.
