'UNOPPOSED': FUFA boss Moses Magogo

Engineer Moses Magogo is set to serve a fresh four year term as the president of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA).

According to FUFA, the Proline football director was disqualified after he failed to fulfill the mandatory requirements that were requested on Friday June 16.

He was then given another two days until Monday, June 19 and still failed to comply with the mandatory requirements stipulated in the FUFA Statutes, FUFA Electoral Code and FUFA Electoral Guidelines for candidature of the FUFA President and FUFA Executive Committee.

Mujib served as the Vice President during former president Lawrence Mulindwa’s regime.
