According to incoming FUFA President Moses Magogo, the federation is not certain the team will travel to Botswana (today) and to Turkey on Sunday as it had been planned to prepare for the do or die World Cup encounter with Senegal in Morocco on September 7.

Muwema told Pepper Sport that the court injunction seeks to stop FUFA or FUFA LTD from continuing with duties of governing Ugandan football because they are ‘illegal’.

“We want new structures to be put in place to re-organise our football and that will be sorted out by court soon,” Muwema said on behalf of Uganda Super League Limited (USLL).

Magogo revealed that the Attorney General Peter Nyombi had clarified the difference between FUFA and FUFA LTD adding that there was no need to stop association activities like the league and the August 31 Delegates Conference.

Meanwhile Cranes left for Botswana on Thursday afternoon with coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic conceding to pressure over the omission of custodian Abel Dhaira, strikers Dan Sserunkuuma and Goeffrey Massa in their bid to get shape in Gaborone and upset the West Africans at a neutral ground in Marrakesh.

Drama ensure at the federation hedquarters in Mengo when even the Shs385m President Museveni donated to the Cranes on Tuesday was with held by the Education Ministry since Ministry officials doubt who to give the money (FUFA or FUFA LTD) owing to the Injuction.

  1. The way forward is for government to sign a contract with FUFA Ltd giving them powers to run football development and the national teams. The league has nothing to do with the government. Then NCS (do we really need this body anymore?) or ministry of sports, will periodically evaluate that FUFA meets standards.

    Alternatively, parliament should just amend the 1964 act and remove the clauses that prevent FUFA from forming FUFA Ltd. That will not silence USL as they have sinister motives.
