The Federation of Ugandan Football Association (FUFA) has confirmed the passing of former Uganda Cranes team doctor Dr James Sekajugo who was found dead at his residence in Bugolobi, Nakawa Division, a Kampala suburb.
Dr Sekajugo’s untimely death came on Friday evening, sending shockwaves through the football community, with many football enthusiasts celebrating the indelible mark he left on the country’s football landscape.
Dr Sekajugo had a storied history within FUFA, serving as the chairman of the Normalisation Committee in 2005 and dedicating years to the Uganda Cranes as their team doctor for several years.
His impact extended beyond football, as he actively contributed to the Uganda Child Cancer Foundation between 2009 and 2019.
Known for his healing touch on the injuries of countless sportspersons across the country, Dr. James Sekajugo’s sudden departure has left a void that resonates within the football fraternity.
Sekajugo’s passing comes swiftly after another sorrowful announcement from FUFA barely a week after Esther Musoke, the Federation’s former FUFA Marketing Director and Chief Commercial Officer of the Uganda Premier League Board passed on at Mengo Hospital.
The dual losses cast a pall over Ugandan football, prompting reflection on the significant roles both Dr James Sekajugo and Esther Musoke played in shaping the sport’s landscape and impacting lives well beyond the boundaries of the pitch.
The football community mourns their passing and stands united in extending condolences to the bereaved families and friends.
