SC Villa Elections Must Go On – Moses Magogo

Moses Magogo who is part of Villa Member Trust and doubles as the FUFA President, says that SC Villa should hold Presidential Elections without fail despite request from the Club Trustees asking for more time.

The Federation of Uganda Football Association directed Villa to conduct elections for the Executive Board by the 23rd October 2021.

This comes after Villa trustees requested a three-month extension to have everything in place before holding elections.

The Elections were suspended in August after a court injuction following a petition filed by Brenda Kawuma Nambalirwa.

Villa Trustees said that their interim committee needs more time to prepare the team for the season, attend to all the club licensing requirements, prepare for and update the congress on the developments in order to map a way forward.

“There is no reason that can stop these elections, no need for the 3 months to arrange these elections because the voters are available, rules and regulations are in place, everything is set,” Magogo said on Sunday on FUFA FM.

“What is remaining was to vote the president and his executive that will run this club. That is the only step to bring back this club to the top.

“Last time, the elections were almost done, it was then stopped and we agreed to rearrange the process. But even the reason for stopping it was not clear enough. But as you know a court order must be respected.”

Magogo says that the Federation (FUFA) only recognises the Congress adding that “FUFA doesn’t deal with the trustees, the Federation doesn’t deal with the owners, it deals with the Club.”

“And even when there is any decision made by the Trustees, we tell them to take it to the Congress. Whatever the Congress decides, Fufa can not resist.”

In their press briefing on Saturday, the Trustees confirmed replacing Shawn Mubiru with Brenda Kawuma as the new club CEO, a move Magogo said that “its wrong because Shawn has done great things for the club while Brenda is still an amateur.”

Is Magogo Genuine About Villa Concerns?

Magogo surely raised genuine points during his interview. The Interim Committee has been around since 2018 but there has been no semblance of organisation at the club during that period.

Nothing has changed; Players have gone months without pay and the club has been characterised with poor performances throughout.

However, many still question the genuineness of Magogo’s motives who some think that he wants to have total control or take over the club.

As a FUFA President, many think that Magogo should not involve himself in such matters due to conflict of interest.

He confirmed that he has been working behind the curtains alongside other people like Joram Katende and Eugene Sepuya to see the club return to the top.

In his defence, in one of the forums, Magogo said that he excumysehimself at FUFA from decisions about Sports Club Villa and also expressed his possible conflict of interest in writing to the FUFA CEO Edgar Watson.
