Africa: Magogo Re-Elected FUFA President for Second Term


Moses Magogo will steer the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) for another four-year term.

The CAF Executive Committee member was voted unopposed at the 93rd FUFA Ordinary General Assembly held on Saturday, 5 August 2017, in the Western town of Masinda.

He surpassed more than the required 50 per cent of the votes, polling 69 of the 72 valid votes.

In his acceptance speech, Magogo expressed appreciation to the various stakeholders, whilst pledging to improve the fortunes of Ugandan football.

"We have proven what we promised four years ago has been achieved. We have over delivered. We are always certain of the support and it was only today to prove it. I am very grateful for the support from the football people especially the delegates.

"We are now tasking ourselves to see that one of the performance indicators is to improve the FUFA budget," Magogo said.

Justus Mugisha and Darius Mugoye retained their positions of First and Second vice presidents respectively with Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi voted as Third Vice President.

Other members of the Executive Committee are Rogers Byamukama (Kitara Region), Rasoul Ariga (West Nile), Kirizesitom Kalibala (Western Region), Richard Ochom (North East Region), Hamid Juma (Kampala Region) and Agnes Mugena (North East Region).
