They reject the FUFA administration led by Moses Magogo as illegitimate

George Ssemwogerere and Dan Walusimbi the leaders of a group of ex-footballers at odds with FUFA have been released from Luzira Prison on bail and are due to report back to Mwanga II Court on April 4th.

 

The duo was remanded on March 15th after storming FUFA offices in Mengo with a group of former footballers with the intention of taking over the administration.

They were charged on counts of trespass and malicious damage.

Magistrate Ester Nyadoi granted them bail at a fee of sh500,000 each while the sureties Dan Mubiru, Godfrey Kwizera, Daniel Muwanguzi and Jimmy Sekandi were told to pay sh2m (not cash).

Ssemwogerere and Walusimbi upon release however vowed to continue their crusade on what they called justice and a demand that former footballers be given the mandate to run football in the country.

They reject the FUFA administration led by Moses Magogo as illegitimate especially having been granted a trustees certificate for the land on which the FUFA headquarters are situated by the Ministry of Lands.

They also claim that NCS handed the practicing certificate to the wrong group; FUFA Ltd led by Magogo.

Their lawyer Allan Mulindwa however said he is happy his clients have not been barred from the FUFA premises by court.
