Alupo was by Friday evening still holed up in Mayuge where she was attending a function with President Yoweri Museveni.

However, according to reliable sources the person who had to take the invitation card to the minister’s office was on Friday informed that FUFA President, Lawrence Mulindwa, hadn’t signed the letter.

Federation officials whom we met at Namboole stadium during the Taifa Stars training on Friday evening refused to comment about this development, saying they were not fully briefed.

Alupo and FUFA management have been at loggerheads over her intentions to disband the local federation.

During the Zambia game last year, some government officials including Minister Charles Bakkabulindi and his Zambian counterpart were nearly blocked from accessing the stadium for not presenting their invitations card.

Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi is expected to be the chief guest as Uganda will be tussling out with Tanzania in a return leg of the 2014 South Africa CHAN qualifiers.

Uganda is leading by 1-0 after the 1st leg two weeks back in Tanzania and thanks for the lone goal from Denis Guma.
