Proline Football Club director Mujib Kasule has wthdrawn from FUFA Presidential Race

Mujib Kasule has announced that he will not be able to return the nomination forms he had earlier picked seeking to contest for the Presidency of FUFA.

Mujib who is also the director of Proline Football Club was one of the three candidates that picked nomination forms from FUFA including incumbent president Moses Magogo and Makindye West Member of Parliament Allan Ssewanyana.

He said that he could not complete the requirements needed for nomination which marked the end of his race.

“Today, I did not return my nomination forms as expected because of the frustration in satisfying the nomination requirements needed,” Kasule said before adding “This whole process is sham.”

He adds that the whole nomination process was meant to frustrate any potential candidates. “It was set up to protect the incumbent, it was set up to ensure that he went through unopposed.”

“The nomination process should never be meant to lock people out. It must give an opportunity to football people to choose the best candidate,” Mujib said.
