“I told the assembly this year that I want to come back as the president and I also want to come back with my executive,” said Otuchet.

Otuchet further noted that “a lot hasn’t been done though in terms of performance, my regime has done a lot. It was in my regime when Kiprotich made the whole nation proud. I want to keep that in coming years if given another term of office. The Federation has no permanent office, we are still renting and so, it is among the achievements I want. I don’t think any new person can make it earlier than I think I will do.”

Although no any other person has shown interest in taking over from Otuchet, he (Otuchet) called-upon whoever wishes to contest alongside him to do so if really he or she has a challenge against his reign.

However, it was during his reign that Uganda lost the Puma Kit Sponsorship after Uganda Athletics Federation’s officials stole a luggage of kits that were meant for athletes.

Otuchet took over the office from Dan Tamwesigire in 2007 and by then, a person could be allowed to be in office for two years before elections but after taking over, the constitution was amended to allow the executive to be in office for four years.
