FUFA announced on Wednesday that all its 12 executive committee members will pave way for fresh elections of new members to the assembly.

FUFA first vice president and the chairman of standing committee on elections Justus Mugisha said that the officers have voluntarily relinquished their offices to avoid conflict in the federation’s newly developed FUFA statute, human resource manual and amended constitution. 

The regulations do not allow an official to hold more than one office at a time.

“The entire (FUFA) executive committee has resigned their positions on the assembly. We are getting all the vacant positions filled very soon,” Mugisha said.

The FUFA executive committee is composed of Magogo, first vice president Darius Mugoye from Kampala, Rasul Aliga (West Nile), Chris Kalibala (Western), Rogers Byamukama (Kitara), Justus Mugisha (Schools), Sam Mpiima (Buganda), Mariam Kaliga (Women), Sam Lwere (Busoga), Hamid Juma (Kampala),Richard Ochom (North Eastern) and Bernard Ogwel (Northern). All the officials were initially appointed on grounds of representing a region in the FUFA assembly.

The announcement comes days after federation president Moses Magogo said that all football officials at FUFA House who hold positions on the executive committee, in the assembly or the secretariat, have to choose one office.

The first dual office holder to quit office was former FUFA spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa, who announced his resignation to remain a delegate to the assembly.

But Mulindwa did not attribute his departure to rules in the federation but rather criticised Magogo for disregarding his executives in decision making processes. 

Mulindwa’s recently appointed replacement Ahmed Hussein assumed office at Mengo on Wednesday.

At the same press conference, FUFA CEO Edgar Watson dismissed allegations that Rogers Mulindwa was forced out of the federation on FIFA instructions as is being discussed in media circles.

“FIFA has not issued any instructions to force any secretariat staff out of office nor has the president given an interview to any one on the matter,” Watson said.
