It follows a decision by Mulindwa on Monday this week not to seek another term because of personal reason.

Moses Magogo, the incumbent vice president of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations in charge of administration has reportedly been endorsed by the current executive to replace his boss Lawrence Mulindwa. It follows a decision by Mulindwa on Monday this week not to seek another term because of personal reason.

Mulindwa, who also sits on two committees of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Council for East and central African Football Associations (Cecafa) was elected in 2005. Magogo told URN on Wednesday afternoon that after consultations within the FUFA executive and other members he was picked to contest for the FUFA presidency come August 31st.
 
It is not yet clear why Mulindwa decided not to quit instead of seeking another term office. Some source claims that government might dissolve the current Fufa executive over legal concerns and institute an interim executive. However, such a decision could also force the world football governing body FIFA to intervene since it could be seen as government interference in football management.
