EX-Minister passes FIFA/FUFA Exams

Winner: Alintuma Nsambu John

A former minister in President Yoweri Museveni cabinet, John Alintuma Nsambu has emerged the only successful candidate in the recently conducted FIFA player Agents examinations.

Alintuma who served as the state minister for Information Technology sat the examinations on March 29 with two other candidates. A total of twenty questions were done each earning the candidate a mark. Fifteen of these examinations were set and sent by FIFA, an international football body while five others were locally set by FUFA. For one to pass one needed at least 14 questions answered rightly.

Alintuma got 15 questions right according to the results supervised by Mr. William Byuma, the Federation Education officer. Others were Ofongo James and Musa Kizito who scored 11 and 7 points respectively.

The sole successful candidate will now have to appear before the Federation Licensing Board chaired by a FIFA certified Administration instructor Mr. Justus Mugisha for further scrutiny. He will be required to present the insurance cover to the board among other requirements. On fulfillment of all the requirements, Alintuma will be presented with a certificate of operation as a fully registered players’ agent.

Alintuma served as a minister and a Member of Parliament for Bukoto Central constituency between 2006 and 2011 but lost his parliamentary seats to Florence Namayanja during elections. President Museveni also threw him out of cabinet and replaced him with Nyombi Tembo who was formerly in charge of Luwero Triangle ministry.

The next player Agents examinations will be conducted in September this year.
