High Court Judge, Hon. Lady Justice Henrietta Wolayo has dismissed a case seeking injunction on the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUfA) General Assembly slated for August 5, 2017 in Masindi.

Justice Wolayi threw out an application filed by Edwin Bazanye, Paul Mugamba and Solomon Bbira on Thursday at High Court on Twed Towers.

The trio was seeking an injunction on the elective assembly not to take place before the hearing of the main application.

Through Geoffrey Nsamba and Company Advocates, the football fans that already have a main case in court about the Fufa election process filed an application on Monday this week seeking to stop the Fufa General Assembly from taking place.

However, the judge ruled that FUFA polls should go ahead on August 5 in Masindi indicating the process doesn’t in any way interfere with the main case.

The fans in context accuse incumbent Fufa President, Moses Magogo of organizing an irregular election process that only favored him and his allies.

The other people incorporated into the case include: the attorney general, National Council of Sports, FUFA CEO Edgar Watson, Fufa Electoral Committee chairman Samuel Bakiika and his assistant Yusuf Awuye.

Another court case over the same matter is going on in Lira District filled by former footballer Dan Obote who is also represented by Lawyer Geoffrey Nsamba

Incumbent President, Moses Magogo is unopposed and will be seeking for his second 4 year term in office.
