Eng. Moses Hashim Magogo has been re-elected for the third time in a row to be President of the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) for the next four years (2021-2025).

Magogo, also the MP for Budiope East was confirmed FUFA president at the 97th Ordinary General Assembly held in Mbale city on Saturday, August 21.

A member of the CAF EXCOM, Magogo first assumed the office of FUFA Presidency in 2013 when he replaced Dr Lawrence Mulindwa.

He was then re-elected in 2017 to assume his second stint at the helm of the Ugandan Football Associations Presidency.

Speaking after assuming his third term in office, Magogo acknowledged that the next four years will be about consolidating what has been achieved in the previous eight.

“It is an emotional moment knowing how far we have come. The next four years will definitely be about consolidating what we have achieved so far and igniting the next gear,” he said.

At the same Assembly that had state minister for sports Hon Hamson Obua as the chief guest, the FUFA Executive Committee that will work with Magogo was also elected and ratified.
