Misagga in secret meetings with FUFA Delegates

Missaga (L) and Yusuf Chuni

Eng. Ben Misagga has intensified his early endeavours to become the next FUFA President by having secret meetings with the delegates. Misagga declared his intentions to succeed current president Eng. Moses Magogo before the end of last year and earmarked meeting all the Fufa delegates across the country starting this year. This website has gathered from reliable sources that Misagga secretly met with FUFA delegates from the East and let out his intentions to them. The meeting held in a high profile hotel in Mbale saw one of the delegates expressing concerns over the allowances they (delegates) get annually which he said can’t do much to the development of the game atthe grass root. “The delegates from the East met with Misagga and he informed them of his intentions to succeed Magogo and they pledged to support him,” noted the source that claimed to have also attended the meeting. Delegates earn Shs1m per year –which figure was doubled from Shs500000 last year. When contacted, Misagga could neither confirm nor deny the developments. “I do not want to comment on that but what is wrong with a football person meeting football people? What is wrong with a presidential aspirant meeting future voters?” asked the Nyamityobora FC president, who reiterated his stand to enter the top football governing office in Uganda. Magogo is serving his second term he officially took on in 2017. FUFA has 88 delegates from two categories of membership; ordinary and associate members. Whereas the ordinary members vote, the associate members have no right to vote despite having rights to attend the assembly. Ordinary members include; the 16 FUFA Super League clubs, the FUFA Big League, the 8 Regional Associations, the Uganda Football Players Association, the Uganda Women Football Association, the Uganda Football Coaches Association, the Uganda Football Referees Association, the Uganda Beach-Soccer Association, the Uganda Schools Football Association and Uganda Youth Football Association.
