We have always supported FUFA – NCS insists

By Clive Kyazze

After the Cranes lost 3-0 to Tanzania in their last group game of the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations shots have been fired from all angles.

The fans, the FUFA president Moses Magogo have all had something to say as a way of showing their disappointment.

The FUFA president released a statement in the wee hours of Monday morning throwing the blame at different stakeholders, from the players and coaches to National Council of Sports.

“Despite NCS not providing the funds required, the FUFA administration mobilized funds and cleared everything outstanding before the match,” read part of Magogo’s statement.

Football-256 later learnt that FUFA has received Shs1B of the Shs4.022Bn from NCS to take of their operations in the first quarter of the year.

“Government is not per event, it’s all year and FUFA received their share first the first quarter of their year,” NCS head of corporate affair Ismail Dhakaba Kikongo told www.football-256.com.

“They receive Shs1.022Bn every quarter, July, October, January already paid, next instalment due April,” Kigongo added.

The latest revelation clears the air on the endless FUFA claims that NCS never supports their activities. Although it should also be noted that what FUFA gets NCS can’t take care of the necessary bills needed to manage the national team activities.
