Death has robbed FUFA of yet another football family member and former Kamuli district delegate, Grace Lubandi.
Lubandi died from Mulago Hospital on Wednesday and will be laid to rest at Balawuli village along Bukungu road in Kamuli district this Thursday at 2:00pm.
FUFA President Lawrence Mulindwa has described Lubandi’s death as a ‘big loss’ to the entire football fraternity. “He has been very knowledgeable in the field of football administration. We thank God for his tireless service rendered to this nation as both a teacher and a football administrator”, reads part of the FA president’s condolence message.
The deceased served as a delegate between 1995 and 2009, a record of 14 years. During the late Denis Obua’s regime, Lubandi was an executive member from 199 to 2002.
Throughout his tenure, he has been one of the eloquent legislators in the history of the FUFA Assembly. Professionally, he trained as a secondary school teacher but he has also been a proud Budonian. Before meeting his death, Lubandi was a head teacher for Wakitaka SS in Jinja district.
He has been one of the key advisors and staunch supporters of Mr. Lawrence Mulindwa whom he nominated for the Maiden FUFA Presidency candidature in 2005 in his capacity as Kamuli DFA Delegate
He survives with a widow and children. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
