Magogo is a Nobody, He Can’t Sue Me,Says Dan Walusimbi

Dan Walusimbi says he will not be intimidated by anyone

The wrangles between the two factions claiming legality over true ownership of the right to administer football in Uganda seem far from getting an amicable solution.

On Wednesday, information pills Federation of Uganda Football Associations(FUFA), case President Eng. Moses Magogo stated that they are going to seek for legal action over the attack on the Fufa headquarters in Mengo that involved vandalising of property at the start of this week.

However, order a day later,Dan Walusimbi who claims to be the legal FUFA President of the faction that raided Fufa house on Monday has come out to indicate he is not moved by everything that Magogo said and he is ready to take him on.

“I want to say this on record, Magogo is a nobody in Uganda’s football and he has no way he can sue me,” said Walusimbi in a press conference at Tagy Motel on Thursday.

“First, Magogo doesn’t have certificate of incorporation and his federation is illegal, so how does an illegality seek for legality,” added the outspoken Walusimbi.

“Our cause is to bring sanity to football, the Fufa house at the moment is under Nkwanga Construction and company limited which means it is into the hands of individuals and that is what we are fighting against.”

“If Magogo thinks he can intimidate me by going to court, let him go and I’m ready to face him,” Walusimbi stressed.

He also slammed the National Council of Sports(NCS) for causing all the mess and wondered why they keep engaging with an illegal entity.

“NCS should stop the double standards, they know the rightful person and who has the necessary documents to administer football in Uganda but have kept on siding with people who lack the mandate to run the game,” he said.

Quizzed about when and how he expects the whole saga to end,Walusimbi indicated, he believes by the end of this year,everything will be sorted.

“I want to assure the general public that the time has come for impunity to end in football, we have fought this for long and we believe before the year ends,this saga will be done,” Walusimbi emphasized.

Walusimbi also stated that they have planned for a symposium next week on Monday at the FUFA headquarters in Mengo to forge a way forward.

“We were at Fufa house in Mengo on Monday and everyone saw what we caused. Next week on Monday, we shall have a football symposium in the same place and I believe no one will interfere with our arrangement,” he said.
