The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) president Hon Moses Magogo wants UPDF contract terminated with immediate effects, explaining that renovations at Namboole Stadium are substandard, slow and insensitive.
Today, Tuesday 25th April 2023 being the deadline set by CAF for all federations to submit names of venues to be used for the qualifiers due in June, the FUFA Executive has taken a decision to host the Uganda Cranes next AFCON 2023 home fixture against Algeria in Cameroon.
This decision comes after FUFA inspected Mandela National Stadium on Monday 24th April 2023 and confirmed that the Stadium is not ready to host the qualifiers that resume in June.
However, FUFA expresses its disappointment at the latest ongoing works at Mandela National Stadium following yesterday’s routine site visit by the Minister of State for Sports Hon. Peter Ogwang, FUFA President Hon. Magogo Moses Hassim and Stadium officials.
FUFA has described the work as very slow and insensitive to cries of the public to be able to host the matches in Uganda.
I call upon the relevant Government authorities to urgently cancel the contracts of the contractors and supervisors and immediately procure experienced service providers in stadium construction even if it means being obtained from outside Uganda. The country is likey to have a delayed project, substandard work and without value for money.
