FUFA mourns former football leaders Ssebaana Kizito, Okiror

A dark day has struck Ugandan football following the death of former FUFA Chairman John Ssebaana Kizito and Former Treasurer Micheal Okiror who passed away on Monday all at Nakasero Hospital. Ssebaana passed on inthe morning hours while Okiror at night.

Ssebaana who served as FUFA Chairman from May-December 1992 suffered a stroke which led to the deterioration of his health until his death.

Okiror is also a former Kumi Delegate to the FUFA Assembly as he served as Treasurer from 1998-2000.

‘We have received the sad news of the demise of our former FUFA Chairman Mr. John Ssebaana Kizito and Former Treasurer Micheal Okiror. Football has already lost elders this year and we feel sad when another set of our former leaders is taken away by the Creator’ said FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo.

‘Our elder Mr. John Ssebaana Kizito played a key role in football development in 1992 when reorganization of the sport was much needed. He stepped in and did wonderful job’

‘Okiror was a strong figure in the areas of finances for the Federation. He helped develop football in his home towm Kumi especially when he was FUFA Delegate to the Assembly’

Our condolences go out to the families of the departed football administrators, Buganda Kingdom, KCCA FC, people of North East Region-in particular Kumi District and the entire football fraternity.

May their Souls Rest in Eternal Peace
