Incumbent Dusuman Okee and four other candidates will battle for the presidency in the forthcoming elections of Federation of Motorsports Clubs of Uganda (FMU).
Geoffrey Nsamba, Dipu Rupareria, Fred Kajimu and Jack Wavamuno are other four candidates that have showed interest for the top seat.
On Friday, the election process started with picking registration forms; and aspirants are required to return the forms not later than Tuesday, January 7.
Okee, and the four other candidates set to vie for Presidency, didn’t pick forms on Friday but are expected to show up later at the federation offices located in lugogo.
George Ssemakula who navigates for Arthur Blick Jnr was the first person to pick forms and he is vying for the position of deputy Vice president (Motorcycling).
“I have come to bridge the gap between rider parents and the federation, so unity in all aspects is my major point,” Ssemakula said.
Ssemakula comes from a Motorsports family where his grand father was one of the first stunt riders in Uganda, his Father Godfrey Katende Mukiibi was motocross rider and his two children are currently one of the biggest young talent (Miguel Katende and Jonathan Katende).
Kisitu Mayanja who previously contested for the post of FMU President was the second person to pick forms and he is also vying for the post of deputy vice president motorcycling which he once served.
The federation general secretary Mr. Joseph Mwangala who will also contest for the position of DVP motorcycling is the head of the electoral committee contrary to the usual process where the federation senate appoints the electoral committee.
With that issue, the federation has called an extra ordinary general assembly on the 18 of this month to decide the future of these elections, which means there is a possibility of scraping them.
