Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) President Eng Moses Magogo has joined active politics and is vying to take up Budiope East Member of Parliament Seat in the forthcoming general election. Magogo picked nomination forms at NRM party headquarters on Kyadondo Road this week and will be going against incumbent Geoffrey Dhamuzungu in the party primaries to determine who carries that party flag for the Budiope East Seat.
Magogo is a political amateur but administratively he has made his mark in the local football governing body. One of his most notable achievements is being at the helm of FUFA when Uganda Cranes returned to the AFCON Finals in 2017 after 38-years of waiting. FIFA’s statutes have no room for political interference in sports, however no rules prohibit federation presidents to run for political offices & Magogo says one of his priorities in politics is to advocate for a better sports industry.
