Clubs in Uganda had reached out to Fufa to bail them out during the coronavirus pandemic but Magogo has come out to make it clear why such prayers cannot be granted.
“The government allocation of funds is done by an act of Parliament. Whatever we request for, must be used according to the initial plan,” Moses Magogo said before adding.
“Therefore, we cannot channel the funds because there is a shortage.”
“Whereas we may want to help the clubs, but it is not right to say Fufa should divert the funds meant for the Uganda Cranes towards clubs.”
“Fufa go through an audit by the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development. It is not true that Fufa doesn’t support clubs.”
“We spend USh128M in prize money, USh400M in medical insurance and we paid over USh600M for air tickets to KCCA FC and Proline FC for their continental expeditions,” he added.
Fufa has target to achieve
Moses Magogo went on to elaborate their target to achieve as part of their legacy.
“Fufa has always been open and we believe this meeting will definitely benefit us all.”
“When we took over Fufa, we focused on four areas; building the institution of Fufa, finding resources, relationship with key stakeholders and football development.”
“Going forward, we have had internal discussions as Fufa and we believe we must shift our focus towards infrastructure, national legislation and football competitions,” Magogo added.
The meeting was attended even by the clubs that boycotted the initial meeting.
These included Mwine Mpaka (Mbarara City), Diana Nyago (Busoga United), Bernard Atiku (Onduparaka FC) and Ronald Mutebi (Bright Stars).
Others were Hannington Muhanguzi (MYDA FC), Ronald Barete (BUL FC), Aggrey Ashaba (KCCA FC) and Shawn Mubiru (SC Villa).
Hassan Lule (Wakiso Giants FC), Reuben Mubiru (Kyetume FC) and Moses Kaduyu (URA FC).
George Mulindwa (Vipers SC), Francis Kidega (Police FC) and Florence Nakiwala (Express FC) were also in presence.
