The president of football governing body in the country in Moses Magogo has defended the registration of FUFA as private company limited by guarantee.
Appearing before the Education Committee of parliament chaired by the Mityana District Woman MP Sylvia Namabidde, Moses Magogo said that there a limited company limited by guarantee was the best option for the Federation of Football Association if it was to be affiliated to the global football governing body FIFA.
Magogo made it clear that though majority of the people prefer Fufa to be a public entity it is not possible
He explained to the lawmakers that registering the football body as a private limited company that was to deal with what he refered to as a public good, was inevitable because of the international restrictions.
It was against this background that Magogo further demanded for better laws instead of the National Council of Sports Act that only provide for management of amateur football.
Magogo says that Football matters in the country have advanced and there is need for an Act of Parliament that provides for management of professional and commercial football in Uganda
Magogo also revealed that his executive team was never involved in the alleged transformation of FUFA limited to Nkwanga Construction and supplies company.
MPS noted that in 2009 under Magogo’s administration FUFA limited changed its name to Nkwanga Construction and Supplies Company following a resolution by the Company’s managing directors in 2005.
