The prevailing conditions in the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) Presidential election has created tension and panic from the people directly involved.

A day after he had his bid to contest for the Fufa top seat thrown out, decease Mujib Kasule has come out to announce his way forward.

Kasule, derogated on several issues in a press briefing he addressed at Tipsy Restaurant in Wandegeya, Kampala on Tuesday.

In his submission, Kasule intimated to the press that incumbent Fufa President, Moses Magogo rang him on phone asking him to step down.

“I did not want to reveal this but I have to because of the impunity and injustices that Fufa are conducting. On Sunday morning, Mr. Moses Magogo called me on phone asking me to step down,” Kasule told the media.

“But I want to state that I’m not into this struggle for positions or appeasements. I’m fighting for the good of the game,” he added.

The Proline Football Club proprietor and coach also indicated that there are reports of making him the 3rd Vice President in charge of the league but he vehemently stated he is not into football for positions.

“There are reports and suggestions that if I accept to step down, I will be offered a position of a vice President but that’s not why I’m contesting. I have been in Fufa, worked under Moses Magogo but I decided to step down. So I’m not seeking for positions,” Kasule noted.

Kasule stated that he will seek the attention of FIFA petitioning them about the status of football in Uganda and if that fails he has promised to go to courts of law.

He further asserted that the Fufa Electoral committee has been manipulated to favor the incumbent President and thus it was in their making to stop him at all costs.
