Former FUFA vice president in charge of administration Eng. Moses Magogo is the new Ugandan FA president.

FUFA Electoral committee chairperson Patrick Okanya declared Magogo Uganda’s next top football administrator at 01:54pm (local time) during an ordinary General Assembly held at Jinja Nile Resort Hotel on Saturday.

The Computer Engineer takes over from Lawrence Mulindwa who chose not to seek another term of office after serving two terms of four years each.

Three delegates rejected him while one vote was counted invalid.

Magogo later named his new executive with Justus Mugisha as first Vice President, Darius Mugoye is second Vice President and Mujib Kasule is 3rd Vice President representing FUFA Super League clubs. M/s Mariam Kaliga is a woman representative on the new executive.
