CHRIS Rwanika might be considered an underdog in the FUFA presidential race but the veteran administrator believes he can pull off a shock in next Saturday’s election.

“This man (Mulindwa) is becoming complacent. He might be shocked,” said Rwanika, warning that Mulindwa’s campaign machinery was giving him a wrong impression of what was on the ground.

Rwanika, who will release his manifesto next week, revealed that his person-to-person strategy was yielding results in a campaign that had so far combed most districts.

“I don’t want to disclose which districts I have so far been to because my opponent will also go and pitch camp there,” insisted Rwanika. Rwanika is a retired civil servant and former FUFA secretary.

Mulindwa laughed off Rwanika’s claims as empty threats.
“He’s just joined the race. But remember that I have been mobilising for a year,” said Mulindwa, who is the St.Mary’s Kitende Secondary School proprietor.

“I traversed the whole country a long time ago and the response is positive,” said Mulindwa on suggestions that he has not moved to convince delegates nationwide.

“It is actually Rwanika who is not on the ground. Being on the ground does not mean staying in Kampala and sending SMS phone messages to delegates”.

The December 17 agenda will after election of the president have the new FUFA boss hand picking his own executive as the new constitution stipulates.

The election will also mark the end of a road-map to normalcy set by world football governing body FIFA for Uganda, after the suspension of the local soccer governing body in February.
