'He Is Irreplaceable': Buganda Region Delegates Endorse Magogo For FUFA Presidency

Delegates from the Buganda Region Football Association (BRFA) have  endorsed the incumbent president for Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Eng. Moses Magogo.

The Buganda delegates based their decision on several recognizable achievements registered under the tenure of Hon. Moses Magogo as president of FUFA.

All the six delegates including Jackline Musiime, Michael Ssekabira, Samuel Mpiima, Andy Kaweesa, Hassan Kavuma and Rogers Mulindwa concurred and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to back up Magogo for another term in office.

‘‘There is a need to consolidate the gains and secure the future of our Game. Now, wherefore, we the persons whose names and signatures are appended to the Memorandum, being delegates-Elect representing Buganda Region Football Association to the FUFA Assembly hereby commit ourselves under the whip of Mr Rogers Mulindwa to support and vote Hon. Eng. Moses Magogo for another term as the FUFA President during the forthcoming elections scheduled for August this year,” partially reads the MoU.

The delegates praised Magogo for his contribution towards Uganda Cranes’ back to back qualification to the AFCON finals since 1978, the Hippos (U-20) playing in the AFCON finals and qualifying for the FIFA U-20 World Cup abate due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sand Cranes qualification to AFCON finals for the first time ever, improvement of Uganda’s visibility at both CAF and FIFA levels, FUFA’s ability to secure more sponsorships, women football at its peak, more investment of grassroot football, federation secretariat being more recognized, infrastructural development with several new buildings and the Kadiba stadium under construction, Hon. Magogo being the first Ugandan at the CAF Executive committee and the good leadership traits among others.

Buganda thereby becomes the first region to officially sign an MOU to express their full backing for Eng. Magogo.

The roadmap for the 2021 FUFA elections was released by the FUFA Electoral Commission with smooth progress of the district and regional elections already executed.

The 97th FUFA elective assembly will be hosted by the Eastern Region Football Association on 21st August 2021 in Mbale city.
