FUFA to meet Mujib and Nalubaale officials today
ANYONE aspiring to become a FUFA delegate at the November polls will have to get the support of football playing clubs, not district football officials.

FUFA returning officer Patrick Okanya announced yesterday that district heads will not vote for delegates during the nationwide district assemblies due in a fortnight’s time. He also confirmed that district football officials will also not vote at the FUFA assembly on November 7.

Clubs that completed the first and second division leagues will each be represented by three delegates in their respective district assemblies.

Each district will elect two delegates to the national assembly that will elect the FUFA president on November 7.

“The district chairmen and secretaries who thought they had voting rights can attend and do everything else but they won’t vote. If they are not club representatives they have no business in the election,” Okanya stated.

Mbale delegate Zubair Galiwango last week advocated for district chairmen and secretaries to have voting rights and even threatened legal action.

Okanya also announced that the current FUFA executive members will be part of the assembly but without voting rights –– unless they are also delegates.

The stand-off between soccer governing body FUFA and Proline Soccer Academy could end in an out of court settlement. The court battle that has been raging for a fortnight took a new twist yesterday with the protagonists accepting to meet today.

“Kindly be informed that FUFA has invited Mr. Mujib Kasule, Mr.William Bakabulindi (Academy manager), Mr. Abdu Njubi (former Nalubaale owner), Mr. Jamil Sebina(former Nalubaale official) and Mr Joseph Mwanje for a closed meeting tomorrow at 4.pm at FUFA House,” stated a message from FUFA.

“This is as a consequence of the guidance of His Lordship Kibuka Musoke to only wait for 21 days to settle the matter before him if it has not been settled amicably out of court,” the statement added.

The judiciary with a backlog of numerous cases is lately encouraging parties to settle their differences out of court.

“We’ve got the invitation, and we will attend the meeting,” confirmed Proline director Mujib Kasule. Proline, contesting FUFA’s refusal to allow it take over Nalubaale FC, successfully secured a High Court injunction on the Super Division League.

Express directors have failed to convince Kavuma Kabenge to withdraw a case he filed querying the legality of FUFA. Four of Express’ 10 directors on Monday tried to resolve their differences at a meeting chaired by club patron Prince Kassim Nakibinge. Others who attended the meeting were the president Vincent Bbale Mugera, Kabenge and Hajji Abbas Kangave.

Nakibinge will soon issue an official statement about their position as a club.
