Nakawa High court Thursday dismissed a case filed by Zubairi Galiwango against Uganda’s football governing body (FUFA) executive.

The case was dismissed on grounds that the application was invalid. However, Galiwango insists that he will appeal.

Galiwango dragged FUFA executive led by the president Lawrence Mulindwa to court contending that their continued stay in office is illegal, null and void.

Sued alongside Mulindwa were: Moses Magogo, Anthony Kimuli, Mujib Kasule, Chris Kalibbala,Patrick Egwal, Livingstone Kyambadde, Issa Magoola, Edgar Watson Suubi and FUFA super League ltd.

Galiwango wanted the entire federation disbanded to pave way for fresh elections.

He alleged that the defendants ceased to be executive members of FUFA when the general assembly of FUFA was dissolved on August 25th, 2012.

He wanted court to issue a permanent injunction order restraining the defendants from holding the said offices.

Galiwango also alleged acts of forgery and fraud by the executive.

However, Mulindwa through his lawyers Evans Ochieng, Ambrose Tebiasa and Alex Luganda of Ochieng, Harimwomugasho &co advocates asked court to dismiss the case on grounds that the plaintiff's application is invalid and that the Nakawa high court had no jurisdiction to handle the case.

The suit followed complaints that FUFA delegates amended their constitution which dissolved all components that constitute the integral parts that form the embattled federation.
