Long time serving Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa has announced his resignation today.
The outgoing spokesperson announced his resignation in a letter reproduced below:
“I am delighted to announce that I have this 9th day of January 2014 resigned my position as a FUFA Spokesperson, an office I have held since 17th December 2005.
I have found myself unable to continue serving and defending an administration whose focus seem to differ so much from the foundation and the objectives we laid during Lawrence Mulindwa’s eight years regime.
I however wish to thank the current FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo for giving me an opportunity to work with him and urge him to look back at our old efforts of prioritizing football against individual interests.
I wish to assure the nation and all football fans in particular that I shall remain supportive to the game of football and I shall not whatsoever, join any negative forces in fighting baseless battles that affect football development.
My advisory voice will however continue to be heard in my other capacities as a FUFA delegate, CECAFA spokesperson or even a member of the CAF Media committee. I shall arrange to officially hand over the office within a period not exceeding 14 days or at any convenient time as I may be advised by the Federation CEO.
To all football fans, players, members of the media, the sponsors and the individuals within the FUFA family who appreciated my performance or offered me advice during the eight and a half years I have been in FUFA, I commend you and pray that we keep the link.
To all of you out there, football must be treated bigger than individuals. it’s a game for all of us.
Regards and Happy New Year.”
