Scottish based professional David Obua has said he will write to the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) before the end of this week. The winger who was axed from the Cranes camp a day before a crucial 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya early this month said he has alot to tell in the letter.
The Hearts FC winger who went on to abruptly call an end to his international career unless national coach Bobby Williamson and FUFA President Lawrence Mulindwa resign told URN online from Scotland that it’s high time he let the federation know about many things.
The bitter Obua blames the abrupt end of donning the national jersey to Mulindwa who ordered that he leaves the camp when he walked away from Namboole Stadium before President Yoweri Museveni visited. He said he will send the letter before this week ends. “I have a lot to let them know and also to officially announce that I will not be part of the team,” said Obua.
Obua who scored vital goals for the national team in the last three Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaigns said he believes what he will write in the letter will help younger players and perhaps help FUFA to become more far sighted in the way they manage football.
“I am not going to abuse anyone, but to bring out the reality because I have been around Ugandan football for some time and know the positives and negatives,” said Obua.
Asked about the alleged bad relationship he has been having with the national coach Williamson especially before the away game to Angola where the Cranes lost 2-0, Obua said it is a long story he would not want to get into now. “But I have some of the SMS messages in my phone from Williamson saying lots of things,” he added.
After Uganda Cranes’ failure to beat Kenya to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, many football loving fans thought FUFA had over reacted by kicking Obua out of the camp since he was most times the architect of the team’s goals.
