pharmacy geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 115%;”>The St Mary’s Kitende SS head teacher who has been at the helm at FUFA for more than 8 years quits as one of the longest serving presidents.

The revelation comes amid building tensions approximately 7 weeks to the next FUFA presidential elections expected to be held at the technical centre in Njeru on August 31.

Mulindwa told a FUFA extraordinary executive meeting held at the body’s headquarters on Monday evening that he was no longer interested in pursuing a third term at the helm of Ugandan football.

He is blamed for Cranes’ failure to qualify for the African Nations Cup on four occasions and lack of transparency ion managing FUFA resources.

But his supporters say he contributed enormous financial resources towards the Cranes especially during away matches.

“It’s true he said he will not pursue another term in office,” his vice president in-charge Moses Magogo told ChimpSport on Monday.

On why the FUFA supremo had decided to quit, the outspoken engineer feigned nescience: “It was untimely and I can’t tell the main reason though he will probably make an official statement,” he said.

The renowned businessman who was at one time a leader in the netball federation replaced the Uganda Cranes legend Dennis Obua in 2005.

Mulindwa leaves at a time when Cranes are securing crucial victories in the World Cup qualifiers as they pursue their dream of participating in the much-awaited world competitions due in Brazil next year.
