THE Education and Sports ministry has threatened to ask FUFA to lock Makindye out of the December 17 elective assembly for what it describes as an attempt to disrupt Ugandan soccer’s normalisation process.

Makindye has through its chairman Livingstone Lajan petitioned normalisation committee secretary Patrick Isiagi questioning the presence of schools in the assembly.

“How can Lajan waste our time,” scoffed NCS general secretary Jasper Aligawesa when asked about reports of a meeting that Isiagi said, was supposed to be held between Lajan and sports state minister Charles Bakkabulindi.

“Some of these people are just undermining the status of our ministers,” said Aligawesa.

Although the issue had been resolved by the returning officer Patrick Okanya, Isiagi referred the matter again to FUFA’s committee’s legal sub committee. “We want it to help us interpret what exactly Makindye wants and if they have a case,” Isiagi said.

Lajan had a similar complaint thrown out by returning officer Patrick Okanya. The returning officer is empowered by the FUFA assembly to preside over the federation’s electoral process.

Okanya insists that the case is self-defeating. He cites the national post primary schools tournament that is on FUFA’s calendar and the girls’ secondary schools tournament.

“What about the Cranes where virtually all players are school products. It’s myopic to think schools aren’t stakeholders,” he said.
