Profile Football Club Director and Ex-Uganda Cranes player Mujib Kasule has joined the race to unseat incumbent Moses Magogo as FUFA president.
In a press briefing held at Mackinnon Suites in Kampala today, Mujib announced his official bid to vie for the top at FUFA house, becoming the third candidate to join the race after Incumbent Magogo and Makindye West MP Allan Sewanyana declaring to contest for the position earlier this month.
“I am going to participate in this political football season, I have offered myself to lead the struggle to reclaim the glory of our game,” Mujib said at the official launch of his bid.
Mujib added that with his experience and contribution to Ugandan football, he is the right candidate to lead the Football governing body having previously served as Vice President in the same Federation under Lawrence Mulindwa’s reign.
“I think we need a reset, we need to reorganize the game. It needs systems and structures such that individuals don’t come back and deprive us of this beautiful game called football,” he continued.
Article 39 of the FUFA statute provides that for one to stand for the position of FUFA President, he must be between 31 and 69 years of age and must have served Football for at least seven years.
In his manifesto, Mujib pledges to priorities the domestic league, saying it is more important in developing players and should be allocated more resources.
This is the second time Mujib is running for the same position after his failed bid in 2017 when he disqualified for alleged failure to comply with the election guidelines.
