Justice Mugushi Takes Over Leadership of Uganda FA as President Moses Magogo Stands Down over FIFA Investigation

Embattled President of the
Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) Moses Magogo on Saturday announced his decision to stand down for his first Vice President Justice Mugushi to temporarily take over.

Magogo’s immunity had kept FIFA’s investigation over his alleged sell of World Cup tickets to foreigners pending.

A petition against Magogo was filed two years ago on 30th May 2017 to the FIFA Ethics and Integrity Committee, accusing him of violating and breaching FIFA statures, code of ethics and disciplinary code, under the articles 13, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22.

The Uganda FA boss made the announcement before delegates at the 95th FUFA Ordinary Assembly.

Magogo said that he reached the decision after he was advised to temporarily step down so the allegations can be investigated and permanently addressed.

He expressed confidence that he will return untainted.

“I was very sure that the truth will be known and I will be able to bounce back,” Magogo said.
