FUFA President Moses Magogo Denies Being Part Of Namboole Stadium Shoddy Works

The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) president, Eng. Moses Magogo has denied any taking part in the shoddy works at the Mandela National Stadium found in Namboole.

It should be noted that renovations have been ongoing on the iconic stadium for the past couple of years. These have been carried out by the UPDF Construction brigade.

The State minister for Sports, Hon Peter Ogwang has constantly been providing necessary updates about the stadium. It was expected that this stadium would be put to use this year by the different national teams, especially the Uganda Cranes.

Now, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) yesterday rejected the stadium. It was reported that it falls short of the standards required to host international matches. This was definitely a big blow to not only the sports sector but also Ugandans at large.

Fingers have been pointed at who is to blame for this. And among these was Moses Magogo. However, the MP who is also the FUFA president came out and distanced himself from this issue.

He said that FUFA has no say in the works at the stadium. They are just stakeholders who would have to rent the stadium when it’s available. Therefore, the blame should comfortably be placed where it should be.

Read his statement below;

“Many people want to blame @OfficialFUFA and Magogo but we also have no say because we are just clients. We just give advice and opinions which can be taken or ignored. We would also love to have the team play at home but what else can we do of we have no @CAF_Online certified stadium to host Class A matches,” said Magogo.

Additionally the FUFA president said that all hope is not yet lost. This is because the Ugandan government and CAF are still in discussions. And when they are done, a communication will be released in 2-3 days.
