Former SC Villa President Ben Misagga has accused FUFA President Moses Magogo of masterminding the ongoing saga between Busoga United and the Busoga Kingdom.
The Kingdom recently withdrew the naming rights from Busoga United FC and a whistleblower also petitioned IGG to investigate Club President Hope Diana Nyago.
Busoga United were among the nine clubs that shunned the first consultative meeting between FUFA and UPL clubs.
In his blog, Misagga says that all this is not a coincidence.
Misagga commended Nyago, who bought the team in 2014, for creating an industry-like team that has given many people jobs and helped the school shine.
“The growing curve of her success couldn’t fathom being herded around by a federation that is hell-bent on suppressing divergent views. In order to bring her down, Fufa has chosen to portray her in a negative way,” Misagga wrote.
“It is quite weird that Busoga United has played a whole season without any fuss but now, Fufa is questioning its registration. The club may even be technically thrown out of UPL next season on grounds of failure to meet Fufa’s licensing guidelines. Remember, it takes three seasons to change a name.”
Misagga has also stated that FUFA is using this as a warning to Bernard Atiku’s Onduparaka and Mwine Mpaka’s Mbarara United.
He added: “Don’t be surprised if the two teams (Mbarara and Onduparaka) are relegated next season because all it takes is poor officiating and instigating player uprisings.”
