While addressing the 95th Ordinary Assembly in Adjumani, Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) President Eng. Moses Magogo revealed that he will be stepping aside to facilitate an inquiry into the case filed by FIFA about his alleged illegal sale of 2014 World Cup tickets.
Magogo is set to be out of office for two months as the FUFA Vice President Justus Mugisha will take charge until the inquest is concluded.
“At the beginning of this Assembly, I told you that I have good news to tell you. The good news is that there is a case that was filed to FIFA to tarnish the person of the president.
“This case can go on for ages but to dispose it off once and for all, I was advised to step aside for two months as the investigations go on.
“I was very sure that the truth will be known and I will be able to bounce back,” Magogo confessed to the disbelieving Football August house.
The probe comes after Katwe United owner who also doubles as the Makindye East legislator Allan Ssewanyana petitioned FIFA accusing Magogo of selling all 177 tickets allocated to Uganda to an agent in the United States.
Magogo also revealed that the federation first vice president Justus Mugisha will temporarily steer the wheels as the investigations are conducted and concluded, for the final decision.
