FUFA needs to be listened to by NCS over concerns raised about registration

FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo has today continued to voice his concerns about the need for amendments in the NCS act for the benefit of sports in the country.
Magogo was speaking at a press briefing held by Uganda Table Tennis Association at the Uganda Olympic  Committee offices in Lugogo when he noted that the intention of the Act is a totally different agenda.  he has therefore called on for dialogue and consultations.

‘These regulations are useless and not solving the challenges of sports in Uganda.  NCS  is supposed to advise the Government on this. We are inviting instead of solving problems. NCS does not benefit in sports development at all if federations register as trustees’ Eng. Magogo stressed.

He continued, ‘We are a law abiding body and by the nature of our sport we subscribe to 2 different bodies- the Government of Uganda and FIFA. For that matter we fulfilled 99% of the requirements except for one clause. We wrote to FIFA and the feedback was a warning from the world soccer governing body.
We have contacted NCS for audience but they have refused to get back to us’

‘We told NCS from the start of this exercise that there would be a flaw with FIFA  Statutes if we registered as a Trustee’

He added ‘We are at a time when the  National football team-Uganda Cranes is preparing for an AFCON qualifier against Botswana next weekend and instead of looking
for the over Ush 800m needed for the fixture (mark you NCS is not contributing anything to this) here I am discussing issues that are
meant to destroy sport in this country.  Instead, just yesterday I got a letter telling me of a 30th June 2016 deadline.’

FUFA 3rd Vice President Denis Mbidde who accompanied the President added his voice. He called for dialogue between NCS  and federations to listen to their concerns as
well before taking radical decisions.

UOC President William Blick also expressed concerns over the matter and advised NCS to engage federations before going ahead with
any regrettable actions.
“International laws are very important and help govern sport from an international perspective. I am afraid if  NCS stick to their
guns National sports federations are going to have problems and I do not  want to see this happen. I therefore urge members to sit down
and talk.”
