Former KCCA FC player and Proline FC chairman Mujib Kasule has described current FUFA president Eng. Moses Magogo as a dictator.
On Monday, story Kasule was disqualified from the race to becoming FUFA president by the football body’s Electoral Committee.
Speaking to journalists on Tuesday, the former player said on a number of occasions, Magogo has exhibited characters of impunity while running the game of football in the country.
“Magogo has built a fortress at FUFA that he does everything he wants and no body reports him even if they know the things,” Kasule told journalists.
He cited instances where Eng. Magogo has allegedly manipulated the FUFA constitution replacing its clauses with ‘guidelines’ that he said are taken as laws.
Kasule noted that statutes in the FUFA Constitution are not followed but rather the game is governed through an emergency committee.
According to Jiba as he is commonly referred to in the football circles, FUFA House in Mengo has turned into a home of corruption in the country.
“I know there are high levels of corruption in Uganda but what is happening at FUFA is worse,” Kasule claimed.
“Corruption at Mengo is unprecedented. It smells and stinks.”
He cited the Airtel sponsorship deal to FUFA worth shs 1.2 billion per year, 20% of which, he said goes onto ‘someone’s’ account.
In 2013, the telecom and the football governing body inked a Shs 3.8bn to the Uganda Cranes as Official Sponsors and Shs 400m as sponsors of the Uganda Cup and FUFA Big League making it a total of Shs 4.2bn over a period of four years.
Kasule also claimed that a certain percentage of money from Azam Tv supposed to go to clubs is pocketed by some individuals in Mengo.
“They claimed that acquisition of FUFA FM cost Shs 1.6 billion but everyone knows this was a big lie,” he fumed.
In 2015, the Magogo administration bought city businessman Gordon Wavamunno’s radio station (Wava FM ) on the frequency 102.1.
The former FUFA vice president said he doesn’t have anything personal with Magogo but noted he is not satisfied with the way football is governed in the country.
The visibly hurt former Cranes player accused Eng. Magogo of disrespecting former players and club administrators for his own benefit.
“He has turned the game and FUFA into personal properties. The game is not for me or Magogo but people and players who enjoy it.”
