Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) president Lawrence Mulindwa has vowed not to quit his job.
"I am not going anywhere. I will not allow selfish people to take over. Uganda will not reward me for a good work, only God will," Mulindwa told a news conference in Kampala Tuesday morning.
The FUFA press conference on the Uganda v Zambia game is going on at the headquarters in Kampala.
Mulindwa and national team coach Bobby Williamson have apologised to Ugandans for the Cranes's failure to qualify for the next stage of the Africa Cup of Nations finals due in South Africa early next year.
Reigning Africa champions, Zambia beat Uganda 9-8 in a knock-out game at Namboole Stadium.
Following the Saturday game, the FUFA boss has been under intense pressure, especially from the disappointed fans, to leave office.
Some of them accuse Mulindwa and his team of mismanaging football affairs of the country.
Others, even way before the decider tie against Zambia's Chipolopolo, had expressed their disatisfaction over the high stadium entry fees for the game.
They argued that the ticket prices, the lowest going for sh40,000, were too high for the ordinary fan.
