FEDERATION of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA), National Council of Sports (NCS) and state sports minister Henry Okello Oryem agreed yesterday that the league will not start until the Steven Kavuma probe report on the game is released and discussed.

Registration of a team for the African Club Championship next season has been suspended indefinitely. Express might be considered for a CAF Cup place however.

“The report is anticipated to give us long-term solutions to Ugandan football, which we (stakeholders) are waiting for eagerly,” education ministry PRO Aggrey Kibenge said after the over three-hour meeting at the ministry of education board room.

FUFA were putting pressure on the probe committee to come out with a verdict before the start of December.

State sports minister Oryem chaired the meeting, attended by members from FUFA, led by president Denis Obua, and NCS, led by Chairman Wilson Tumwine.

The meeting yesterday stopped the registration of a team to the Champions League while FUFA and NCS will discuss the possibility of entering a team in the Confederation Cup, where Express are set to represent Uganda.

The decisions mean the league will start over a month late and Uganda might not be represented in continental club competitions next season.

During the weekly press conferences, FUFA had stated that they will go on with the organisations of the league if the report is not released by November 22, which statement they disowned yesterday.

“The meeting advised them to give the probe committee report the attention it needs since it has the interest of almost all Ugandans.

They are supposed to stop talking about the new season until the report is out and its recommendations discussed by all stakeholders,” Kibenge added.

FUFA was asked to stop presenting their problems straight to the minister but pass through NCS.
