Proline Football Club Director Mujib Kasule has officially announced his bid to run for FUFA Presidency, joining the incumbent Moses Magogo and Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana in the race.
Mujib announced his bid in a press conference at Mackinnon Suites in Kampala on Tuesday morning. “I announce that I will stand for FUFA Presidency in the coming elections,” he announced.
The former FUFA vice-president under Lawrence Mulindwa says he wants to mainly focus on developing the Uganda Premier League as he believes the current regime is only focusing on the national team.
“My focus will be the Uganda Premier League, each club should be getting Shs100 million per season to cater for operational costs.”
According to Mujib, the politics fire is destroying football yet the game has to be neutral. He said many people have joined football for personal gains hence messing up all structures.
“Football has to be neutral for everyone; the politics fire that’s destroying it must be stopped,” he said.
He also proposes to send six coaches to Europe every year on a study tour as part of his plans immediately he ascends to the Presidency of the Uganda FA.
“I think we need a reset, we need to re-organise the game. It needs systems and structures such that individuals don’t come back and deprive us of this beautiful game called football,” he said.
In 2017, Mujib showed interest to run for the office of FUFA President but was bitterly locked out of the system for not fulfilling the required qualifications.
Magogo’s current tenure expires on August 31, 2021 and he will be looking for a third term having been voted unopposed in 2013 and 2017.
