As anxiety builds ahead of the FUFA elections, Police has assured football stakeholders of security.

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations Electoral Committee will soon announce whether presidential candidate Mujib Kasule is eligible for nomination.

While Kasule’s nomination papers were held for scrutiny on Friday, incumbent Moses Magogo’s documents were passed by the committee.

There have been claims that FUFA offices will soon be closed thereby locking out Kasule from the electoral process.

Addressing journalists at the Police headquarters in Naguru this morning, Police spokesman Asan Kasingye dismissed reports of the force being involved in the move.

“Police received reports that FUFA offices will be closed after Magogo hands in his papers and deliberately deter Mujib from accessing the office,” said Kasingye.

"This will not happen as we have deployed and to ensure that offices close at the rightful hours (end of the day's business)" Kasingye obsereved.

He said they have accordingly deployed to stop FUFA closing offices and stressed that the offices will be open to allow all contestants equal access.

As Kasule brought his papers to the FUFA offices in Mengo on Friday his car was stoned.

According to Kasingye, Old Kampala Police has taken charge to thwart any irregular activity.
