Allan Mulindwa, sales the defendant’s lead counsel who was furious said these were tricks played by Magogo’s lawyers to delay the hearing and later on a ruling on their matter.

Magogo through Mr Ochieng and Company Advocates petitioned the High Court in Kampala on 29th September seeking for an order restraining the activities of the Dan Walusimbi Fufa faction.

The Fufa boss sought for a temporary injunction on all activities by the Dan Walusimbi led faction including referring to themselves as the rightful FUFA, interfering with business at Fufa house and talking to CAF,FUFA sponsors and FIFA.

This was prompted by invasion on the FUFA headquarters in Mengo by Dan Walusimbi’s faction and ex-Cranes internationals on two included vandalising of property at the premises.

The initial hearing took place on 5th December before Justice Ajiji but the case was adjourned to 14 December.

However, his Lordship Basaza Wasswa rescheduled it to the next day (today). The judge has therefore advised the legal teams to write a hearing notice indicating when they are ready to have the case go on.
