On May 6, 2021, CAF announced that World Cup qualifiers supposed to kick off in the month of June had now been pushed ahead, to happen in the months of September, October, November, and early the following year.
This news of CAF postponing such crucial qualifiers, to my surprise, has not been analysed by many. God works in mysterious ways. We wonder when He lifts His arm up, to work. Ugandans should celebrate.
Covid is real! This is good news. Magogo, arguably the most successful FUFA president since the seventies, had started fast tracking the crumbling of the empire he had built for almost ten years, using his own hands and the, really, misled brains of those surrounding him.
We were left confused and shocked when we watched, in a video clip that is still circulating on social media, FUFA employed security guards walloping a famous ex-international, Mike Mutyaba. These things are so old-fashioned. No man should beat a fellow man in the 21st century using his hands, or feet.
In late August, FUFA delegates will assemble in Eastern Uganda to vote for a FUFA president who will steer the national Football governing body, for the next four years.
Magogo is the MP-elect of Budiope East Constituency, it should be remembered. He is about to be sworn-in as MP of that area in Budiope, in Eastern Uganda.
We congratulate Moses Magogo upon enabling us break the Jinx that had lasted for almost 40 years. Uganda had never qualified for AFCON in almost four decades.
We were in Gabon in 2017 and again, in Egypt in 2019. It is shocking that he is now fully taking part in politics. Moses Magogo of 2013-2020 is totally different from this Magogo here today, that will soon be sworn-in as a Member of Parliament.
August houses in Africa are full of life that once one makes his or her way into them, he or she never yearns to hunger for life, from other sectors.
It is absurd that the people seeking to oust Magogo have a lot of questions to answer that will be asked by the general public. We would not qualify for World Cup to be held in Qatar late next year if CAF never listened to advisers, to postpone qualifiers in Africa.
May is a month that we are all looking at with keen eyes. President Museveni will be sworn-in for a sixth term despite the thought about efforts, earlier, to stop him from doing so.
This is Africa where politics is among the incredibly visible sources of employment. We are not a settled down country. CAF reached a decision we knowledgeable men welcomed. June would be disaster.
Namboole stadium, a stadium that this regime sacrificed a lot, to erect, is lying idle. But if it was not Lawrence Mulindwa, who came to the whole country’s rescue, it would be embarrassing for this country, which has been independent for almost 60 years and has neglected the game of Football to an extent that boggles minds, to host its home matches in stadia built by fellow third world countries, neighboring it.
Magogo is now up and down, readying himself to be sworn-in as an MP, for Budiope East constituency. He will, soon, enter parliament to be a parliamentarian.
It will be the end of the Magogo you all know. He had never got the nerves to turn himself into an arrogant man until he was elected to the august house by Budiope East dwellers. He is already becoming a very different man from the one we knew.
Moses Magogo of 2013, and before going to parliament, wouldn’t stand up in public in front a Football loving audience to openly say that because the Footballers serving the country played ‘shitty’ Football, they deserved to go to bed hungry.
This is what Moses Magogo has become. Insulting Footballers is unsporting behavior Moses Magogo. Mujib Kasule and Allan Sewanyana Bwiino are aware, of this.
It is unfortunate that Sewanyana and Mujib Kasule, among the three notable figures that have already shown real interest in standing for FUFA presidency, against Magogo, are far behind in the queue where Moses Magogo is , also, involved. Magogo would be replaced.
Magogo is better than Mujib Kasule and Hon. Allan Sewanyana Bwiino.
Allan Sewanyana is a man among the defiant gang. Defiance will force a dictator quit, anywhere in the world, but such habits cannot win a national team games.
We are a bit on track. All the sixteen teams in Uganda Premier League are, indeed, currently, meaning business. Uganda Cup is in its own caliber. There is talent in Uganda! We are almost approaching a spot where the Promised Land will soon be seen.
All these things are happening but leaders, whom we will celebrate in decades to come, must know when it is time to quit. Mulindwa quit. His founded team Vipers Sports Club is among the most respected in Uganda. Mulindwa’s stadium, located in Kitende, is the reason why Uganda will play its home games, during World Cup qualifiers, at home.
Mujib Kasule and Allan Sewanyana are men in the same caliber. They have been there. They have watched Football being rolled in mud by whoever wanted, with their own eyes. Their complaints were always empty. There is nothing they will add to the slowly but surely progressing game of Football in Uganda. Magogo is still the favourite.
CAF was right to postpone World cup qualifiers to months beyond June.
We should first ask ourselves why players in the bracket of Onyango, Hassan Wasswa and Mike Azira are quitting international Football. We should first concentrate and discover why Mike Mutyaba is, until now, still pestering FUFA to be honest. June indeed was not the month we, as a country, needed to play our neighbours Kenya, Rwanda and a serious national from West Africa, Mali.
We needed to calm the ongoing storm in the sector of Football before embarking on playing ready national Football teams. By postponing these qualifiers, CAF has saved this poor country from embarrassment.
Playing competitive Football in June meant us losing every away game that we would play. Thanks CAF and FIFA. Here is now space and time for Magogo’s FUFA to keenly look at the technical staff that will, successfully, guide the Cranes to Qatar in 2022.
