By Norman Katende and Robert Bukenya ASPIRING FUFA delegates from the Eastern region have promised to support Haruna Mawanda’s bid for the FUFA secretary’s job on condition that he champions their interests. Jinja delegate Julius Zziwa told The New Vision that they last week had a meeting with Mawanda and agreed they would support him only if he promised to support the “candidate from the east.” Twaha Kakaire and Michael Okiror are from eastern Uganda. The other’s bidding for the top post are Haji Abbas Kaawaase, Denis Obua and Joseph Kaggwa. Zziwa said the caucus which included Eastern football strong men agreed that if Buganda helps them get votes for their FUFA presidential candidate, they would allow Buganda take the secretary’s post. Meanwhile, Kaawaase and Kakaire are considering a joint effort to dislodge embattled Obua. Obua, campaigning for a second term in the December 1 FUFA polls, got a blow recently when his strong-man and secretary Godfrey Kisekka opted not to seek re-election. Kaawaase however said an alliance will only be formed after the polls for delegates on November 10. “We can not go out for an alliance unless we have been elected as delegates. Let us become delegates, then later think of an alliance,” he said. Kaawaase, Kakaire , Kaggwa and Okiror are members of the Caucus for Football Development (CFD). ends
