Rogers Mulindwa, the Fufa spokesperson, on Wednesday congratulated the NRM government upon marking 27 years in power. During the weekly Fufa press briefing, Mulindwa said: "I want to thank the government on behalf of Fufa for all the assistance they have rendered us to take football forward. As Fufa we shall be supportive of government policies."
But Mulindwa also took the opportunity to remind President Yoweri Museveni of the pledges he made to Fufa after Cranes won the 2009 Cecafa Cup. The president had promised to help provide funds for the payment of Cranes coach and pay Cranes players a salary of Shs 1m a month.
Mulindwa also said Fufa would abide by whatever ruling the minister of Education and Sports, Jessica Alupo, makes regarding how to end the feud between Fufa and the Uganda Super League.
