“What we are seeking from this court is a temporary injunction on Walusimbi’s faction to stop calling themselves FUFA and stop all the attacks on Fufa house. Walusimbi has run out of ideas thus he resorted to violence,” said one of Magogo’ lawyers.

“They already filed a case in court saying Magogo’s Fufa is illegal, why can’t they wait for a ruling? Do they want to attract government’s attention so that a normalization committee is put in place?” he wondered.

Commenting on the postponement, Walusimbi’s lead counsel, Allan Mulindwa cited a tight schedule on Thursday.

“I have a tight schedule tomorrow and the other lawyer who would come in, Julius Kavuma Kabenge is sick therefore I would prefer another date,” said Mulindwa.

Walusimbi maintains that the Magogo led Fufa is an illegal entity which should not administer football on behalf of Ugandans.
