The 97th FUFA General Assembly will take place this Saturday, August 21, 2021, at Wash and Wills Hotel in Mbale City, starting 9 AM.
“Notice is hereby given to all FUFA Members, Delegates and stakeholders that the 97th FUFA Ordinary General Assembly shall be held on Saturday, August 21, 2021, at Wash And Wills Hotel in Mbale City- Eastern Region, the FUFA CEO Edgar Watson confirmed.
The notice also highlights that the agenda of the Assembly as a priority includes the election of the FUFA President and the Executive Committee Members for the next term of four years.
Incumbent, Moses Magogo is set to be re-elected unopposed for another term in office, as two other initially interested candidates, Allan Ssewanyana and Mujib Kasule picked nomination forms but did not return them as they failed to meet some of the basic requirements.
