“This is a very demanding exercise and we want it to be done without hurry at all and we have a projection that the whole process might take two months before completion.

“If by then [before the renovation work is complete] the league action would have resumed we will have to write to Tanzania Football Federation [TFF] and the league managers to grant us permission to use Uhuru National Stadium for our home matches.”
