Sports Club Villa Jogoo will continue with its interim committee leadersip for the next three months following the cancellation of their presidential elections.
The development was communicated by the Chairman Board of Trustees, Gerald Ssendawula through a statement.
“In the meantime, the Trustees have extended the term of the existing Interim Executive Committee for three months to prepare the football team for the new sporting season that begins on October, 15th 2021,” the statement reads in part.
Club legend William Nkemba will continue as the president, Shawn Mubiru the CEO, Norbert Kazibwe will stay as the Secretary with Aaron Jjagwe the Finance Director. Jaffari Ndawula and Afrigo-band boss Moses Matovu will keep as committee members.
Fufa threatened to deny the Jogoos license to play in the 2021/22 Uganda Premier League season which forced the Board to come up with the quick decision.
The club’s election was initially slated for August 28th, 2021 but was suspended following a court order in respect to the petition of-a one Brenda Nambalirwa Kawuma against the Members of Trustees. The battle was between Dennis Mbidde and Busiro East Member of Parliament Medard Lubega Ssegona.
Villa has been under the leadership of an Interim committee that was introduced in 2018 following the resignation of the then club president Immanuel Ben Misagga.
