In short
The ultimatum, by the Inspectorate of government follows Magogo’s refusal to surrender the original titles saying among others that he does not have authorization to do so by the association membership as per the requirements of FUFA constitution.

FUFA president Moses Magogo has up to Wednesday June 3rd to surrender several original Fufa titles including the Fufa House land title or be arrested and prosecuted for disobeying lawful orders.
 
The ultimatum, by the Inspectorate of government follows Magogo’s refusal to surrender the original titles saying among others that he does not have authorization to do so by the association membership as per the requirements of FUFA constitution.
 
Magogo also said that the requests made by the IGG would paralyze ongoing activities of the football association with far reaching legal, operational and economic implications and that he is also very busy involved in preparations of the Uganda Cranes return leg match with Madagascar for the 2015 AFCON qualifiers slated for tomorrow Saturday 31th May 2014.
 
 But the deputy IGG George Bamugemereire warned in his letter dated May 29 that there will be no any other reminder to Magogo.
 
The request for the original FUFA documents is intended to assist the IGG in carrying out wide investigations about  the mismanagement of Fufa assets and the management of football in Uganda by an illegal entity called Fufa Ltd, whose president is Magogo.
 
According to the IGG, the intended investigations follow several complaints lodged to the Inspectorate about the mismanagement of Fufa assets.
 
Some of the alleged mismanaged include;  Fufa house in Mengo, Fufa bus, changes if any in documents of titles to Fufa assets, management of government funds released to Fufa Ltd for purportedly carrying out activities that are supposed to be carried out by Fufa including but not limited to release of funds to the national football team, the Cranes.
 
Others are; the Fufa/Fufa Ltd bank accounts, accountability for all public funds, gate collections, and funds released to Fufa Ltd by FIFA (the world football governing body) and all sponsorships extended to the national team.
