The 2008 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, will be celebrated from 8th August to 24th August, 2008.
Meanwhile, the UAF had initially requested Masindi district local government to host the event, but this was snubbed allegedly because of lack of funds and manpower.
