The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has set Saturday August 21, 2021 for the upcoming general polls during this year’s Ordinary General Assembly to be hosted in Mbale.
The Assembly will elect the new FUFA President and Executive into office for a four year term.
“Fufa executive approved the Eastern Region Football Association to host the 97th Fufa Ordinary General Assembly on August 21, 2021 in Mbale City. The same assembly will elect the new Fufa president and executive into the office for a four-year term,” FUFA said in a statement.
Incumbent Eng. Moses Magogo who is also the MP-elect for Budiope East constituency confirmed that he will be running for a third term in office.
Magogo has been at the association’s president since 2013 when he replaced Lawrence Mulindwa who decided not to stand for a third term. He has been voted as president on two occasions, both unopposed. His current tenure expires on August 31, 2021.
Makindye West Member of Parliament Allan Ssewanyana, who is a strong critic of Magogo’s administration declared his intention to become the next association’s president.
Proline Football Club Director Mujib Kasule also officially announced his bid to run for FUFA Presidency having been bitterly locked out of the system for not fulfilling the required qualifications in 2017.
They are expected to complete the nomination exercise by May 31.
The FUFA electoral committee is mandated to publish and send the final list of contestants to all the 88 members in a period not more than 30 days prior to the election date and in this case it will be 23rd July.
