FUFA boss resigns

Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) president, Lawrence Mulindwa has decided not to stand for re-election in August, after serving Uganda’s soccer governing body for a period of approximately Nine years.


The President made a decision during an extraordinary executive meeting held at the federation’s offices in Mengo yesterday when he disclosed that he was no longer interested in pursuing a third term as the top administrator of Uganda Football


Without presenting an explanation, Mulindwa reportedly told his executive members that he was fed up with the pressure surrounding the seat.

He pointed that he wanted to retire into his private life and fully manage his personal businesses.

"Yes, he told us that he will not seek another term in office. He said that it was because of the too much pressure on him. He told us that it was beyond his own making. This untimely decision is very unfortunate for our football," a FUFA vice president, who preferred anonymity, disclosed after the meeting.

When FUFA vice president (administration) Moses Magogo was consulted on social media, he stated: "Yes, the guy has said it," he said. On what could have prompted Mulindwa to back out at this moment, Magogo said; "I am not sure, but maybe later, he might issue a statement."

Mulindwa’s decision has come exactly 67days to the next FUFA presidential elections expected to be held at the technical centre in Njeru on August 31.

The teacher/businessman, quits FUFA as the second longest serving president after Kabaka Daudi Chwa (1924- 1934).

In a FUFA extra-ordinary assembly at Namboole two weeks ago, as per a FIFA requirement, Mulindwa advised the assembly to cut down from 400 members to 86. 

The purpose of the assembly was to approve the electoral code that would be used to conduct elections.

During his time as president, Mulindwa was able to improve the image of the national football team.

The Cranes now boast of a host of corporate sponsors that include telecommunication company MTN, National Insurance Corporation (NIC), and Nile Breweries.

He was however blamed for failing to fulfil his pledge of helping Uganda qualify for the World Cup and Africa Nations Cup finals. His regime also witnessed two leagues — the first in Ugandan history.
