SAVE Our Soccer (SOS) have revealed that they only went to court against FUFA because sports minister Henry Okello Oryem violated an agreement with them to dislodge Denis Obua's administration.

Members of the pressure group Aldrine Nsubuga and Dennis Mbidde explained that they had no option after Oryem was reluctant to implement the agreement he reached with SOS in June.

Nsubuga and Mbidde, in serious moods, addressed the press in chorus as they flapped papers of the 200-page document they presented to court.

They said their agreement with the minister was in line with the Stephen Kavuma and the IGG reports.

“Even then we did our best to avoid going to court but we had to as the last resort,” Nsubuga said.
He said the minister had assured them of Obua's exit at the end of his current term but the incumbent declaring his candidature for a third term surprised them.

“It is disturbing. The minister does not move things. Why doesn't he prosecute these people (FUFA) in accordance with the (Stephen) Kavuma and the IGG reports?” Nsubuga wondered.

“These are serious issues and we are tired of jokers,” Mbidde added.

Nsubuga said that they had received support from various district sports administrators to organise anti FUFA demonstrations throughout the country.
The High Court has set October 21 as hearing date of the SOS petition.
