The former FUFA general decretary Haruna Mawanda has asked Parliament to investigate the manner in which his and the late former president Denis Obua’s purported signatures were forged in registering FUFA as a private company in the names of Nkwanga Construction Company.
He made the appeal on Friday while appearing before the education and sports committee of parliament.
Mawanda gave his position on the state of Ugandan football and how best to resolve the unending squabbles in management of the game.
The committee was instituted following a recent petition by a section of Uganda’s football stakeholders led by their president Daniel Walusimbi calling on the government to suspend all dealings with FUFA Limited.
Mawanda was taken aback when the committee showed him the letter dated January 14, 2005 in which FUFA officials resolved to change the body to Nkwanga Limited after government disbanded the federation following formation of FUFA Limited saying it was against national law.
“This is not my signature please and I don’t think the late Obua could also appended his signature on a letter resolving to change FUFA to a construction company because I knew him very well as Mr. Football,” Mawanda implored the committee chaired by the Mityana Woman MP Sylvia Namabidde.
“Please investigate this and bring those who did it to book,” he added.
FUFA Limited was allegedly registered under former president Lawrence Mulindwa and NCS general secretary Jasper Aligawesa.
