    An entrepreneur in Uganda is trying to develop a centuries-old yard game, known as Kwepena, worldwide.

    Simon Tumukunde is aiming to take the game, popular among children all over Africa, to the Olympics.

    He has turned Kwepena into a sport by defining the court dimensions, writing rules and introducing a regulation ball.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from the capital, Kampala.
