FUFA Judicial Bodies urged on making fast and fair decisions

Emphasis on Transparency as FUFA Inducts Judicial Bodies

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has a vision to become the number one footballing nation in Africa on and off the pitch and that comes with several aspects.

In a bid to attain the aforementioned vision, FUFA through its Mission of developing, promoting and protecting the game must keep the preserve on the values through regulations.

On Saturday 16th February 2019, FUFA held a one day retreat for the different judicial bodies. The workshop held at Imperial Royale Hotel was first aimed at inducting the several committees but having members go through orientation.

The FUFA Legal Committee and FUFA Players Status Committee were invited for the orientation as well because of the nature of their work they handle in relation to football matters.

FUFA President, Eng. Moses Hassim Magogo who was the main Instructor emphasised transparency to the different committees when executing their duties.

‘It is another milestone for the game of football as we move towards our vision of becoming the number one football nation in Africa on and off the pitch. In order to uphold the ethics of the game, we need strong judicial bodies that are impartial, transparent and committed’ said Magogo before adding;

‘As FUFA we shall give the judicial bodies necessary support. Those that are found guilty must be put to book while the innocent ones need to be given their liberty to serve football again’

‘Judicial bodies are supposed to provide fast and fair justice to football stakeholders. We are also supposed to protect the game against vices like predetermination of results, hooliganism and corruption’ added the experienced Magogo who is a FIFA Instructor and CAF Executive Committee Member with vast knowledge on football matters.

In some of the aspects discussed at the retreat included; roles of judicial bodies, clarity on the time frame under which the cases must be handled from the time of occurrence, hearing to communication.

Counsel Diana Nabuuso the chairperson of the FUFA Appeals Committee believes the retreat was important for different committees to know their roles.

‘I thank FUFA for this workshop because we have known our respective roles better. In the past there has been a backlog of cases which we want to avoid. We promise commitment and transparency’ noted Nabuuso.
