During the nineties when we could fill stadiums to capacity, I could watch in disbelief as Football fans expressed their anger against the then able Football administrators and biased match officials.
We threw stones on pitches. We disciplined loaded administrators and referees, and went away with it.
I was an ardent Express fan, who could even shed tears when my beloved team Express Football Club lost to Sports Club Villa.
I was shocked when I watched a now viral video clip showing gun-wielding security guards manhandling former Cranes superstar Mike Mutyaba at FUFA house in Mengo.
In the widely shared clip, those mean-looking officers are seen beating Mutyaba with heavy clubs. One even hit him (Mutyaba) in the head with his boot. It is absurd.
Bosses of these ignorant men on duty accused Mutyaba of demonstrating peacefully, against dishonesty among Federation officials.
I shed tears the first time I watched the circulating video clip.
Mutyaba, whose flogging was ordered by FUFA, is an ex-international, with a right to speak his mind. Football players in the country should be respected FUFA.
Moses Magogo is slowly but surely reaping bitter fruits yet he had sown diligently for two terms seeds that would bear fruits that we would all enjoy forever.
Denis Obua, a man who was fought by all Football enemies in the country, never ordered for the walloping of a fan or a former Footballer who attacked his FUFA.
Obua was attacked by even Magogo himself. He never ordered for the beating of these people (the Magogos and the Mulindwas).
It is very unfortunate that FUFA too is now a political party in Africa where those eyeing the throne sat in by the head of the ruling party are hunted, beaten and gagged.
We are busy burying the game we have, for years, been tirelessly working to save. The MP-elect should apologize and resign after!
Magogo ordered security at FUFA to beat Mike Mutyaba. Lawrence Mulindwa never did it. We wrote and dragged Denis Obua along tarmac roads with our pens for years. He never beat us. He quit in peace. Obua later died a disappointed man. This FUFA is becoming worse than some hated governments in Africa.
Magogo should apologize to Football players in Uganda.
