Misagga wants to replace Magogo as FUFA president
Nyamityobora FC President Eng. Ben Misagga wants to replace Eng. Moses Magogo as the FUFA President the next elections. Magogo, who has had commendable achievements so far, is serving his second term after he was re-elected unopposed for second term in June 2017 at Masindi resort hotel.
The Fufa presidential term goes for four years and there are no term limits for the incumbent as long as the delegates still feel that he is the right man to navigate the ship. According to Misagga, Magogo has benefitted 60% from FUFA as an individual during his stay while the game has benefitted 40%. “Yes, he has had some achievements like he claims, but most of these have come with government money and at the top level. He has fought off any stakeholder who guides him or disagrees with his impunity whilst buying off others opposed to him. Magogo’s claimed football development is basically the Uganda Cranes whose average age is 28 years. The regional and DFA leagues that produce the raw talent are not catered for but instead a few individuals that sing the FUFA president’s name benefit at the expense of the game,” claimed Misagga in an exclusive interview. “One of my priorities in the New Year 2019 is to visit regional and district football administrators so that we can see how to grow the game from the grass root. I have met many but will meet more this year. FUFA has a lot of money but can’t even facilitate delegates fairly who think and plan for the game,” added Misagga, who recently clashed with Magogo over the StarTimes’ Uganda premier league 10-year sponsorship deal commission. The next FUFA elections are set for 2021 but Magogo has not expressed any interests. The FUFA boss earlier told the media that he would not be dragged into football politics at a time when the federation has a lot to accomplish.
