The Federation of Uganda Football Associations expresses deep shock at the death of former Uganda Cricket officials Mr Azuba Chris, Mr Justine Ligyalingi and his wife-both parents of the current Chief Executive Officer of Uganda Cricket Association Mr. Justine Ligyalingi.

Mr. and Mrs. Ligyalingi died following a car accident on Monday 17th October, 2016 while Azuba also died on the same day.

FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo mourned the depatrted officials. 

‘It is very sad for the entire sports fraternity in Uganda and especially those in the cricket circles to lose such important people who have groomed very many talents’.

Ligyalingi’s contribution in sports disciplines like Netball, football (where he was a referee), Athletics and cricket left an indelible mark on many young talents. Our beloved mother who also passed away gave birth to the Current CEO of Uganda Cricket Association. We shall dearly miss them’

The FUFA President also eulogised the departed Azuba.

‘His services as the former General Secretary of Uganda Cricket Association and Umpire of the gentleman’s game shows the class he brought in administration and on the crease’

Our prayers are with the family of Ligyalingi, UCA and the rest of the sports fraternity in Uganda.

May their souls Rest in Eternal Peace.
