Uganda Football Players Association has strongly indicated disapproval of the acts of vandalism witnessed on Monday at the Fufa house in Mengo.
A group of Ex-internationals/players led by Dan Walusimbi stormed the Fufa headquarters to ‘force out’ the current occupants claiming they were in office illegally.
The group also claimed that the Fufa house and Fufa technical centre in Njeru had been registered and private ownership in Nkwanga Construction and company limited and Scoreline limited.
“UFPA wishes to categorically denounce the incident of invading Fufa house by a group of ex-internationals/players and others on Monday morning, page http://celesteanddanielle.com/wp-admin/includes/translation-install.php ” the statement signed by UFPA CEO Paul Mukatabala reads in part.
“Ex-internationals are supposed to be a shining example of football in this country therefore to resort to violence was totally uncalled for, about it ” UFPA further rebukes.
The association that brings together the former and current football players is housed at the same premises and urges the disgruntled lot to pursue dialogue to argue out their views rather than destroying property.
“UFPA believes that its okay to have divergent views on matters concerning football in this country but resorting to violence solves nothing.
The Walusimbi led faction has promised to resume their activities on Monday with a planned symposium scheduled to be held at the Fufa house starting 9 AM.
