Want to know what will happen to the sh3b FUFA received from FIFA and CAF as COVID-19 relief funds? Or the sh10b set aside by the government to fund the activities of the Uganda Cranes in the last financial year?

Want to know what will happen to the sh3b FUFA received from FIFA and CAF as COVID-19 relief funds? Or the sh10b set aside by the government to fund the activities of the Uganda Cranes in the last financial year?

Here's the side of FUFA supremo Moses Magogo, delivered at FUFA headquarters during the meeting between the football body and six Uganda Premier League Clubs.
 
"I will repeat here that the information that FUFA received money for clubs is not true," Magogo stressed.

"The funds indeed were sent but they were for the purposes of the usual activities at FUFA. FIFA was very clear that they were sending the second and final installment this year. Meaning that until January of 2021, there will not be any funding coming through. And the objective of FIFA was that in the period of COVID, as the federation is struggling, financials 'can you get what you're entitled to'.

"There are very many obligations that come off that funding. Amongst others, include all other national teams that are not the Uganda Cranes because the government only helps us to finance the Uganda Cranes. And it is also true that these are the funds used to pay different service providers and individuals, including salaries.

And what about the Cranes funding from the government?

Magogo explained, "I would like to assure you that the sh10b which we receive from government is never sh10b because in the fourth quarter there are all kinds of cuts that happen. And the reality is there has been zero funding from government in the fourth quarter. So even the money that is perceived to have been received from government is actually not there."
