Days after the URA Football Club board announced James Kizza replaced Ali Ssekatawa as the new chairman, the former has officially received the instruments of power.
During a brief function held at the URA headquarters in Nakawa on Wednesday evening, Kizza vowed to front the interests of the club at all times.
I promise to maintain the good work of the board members and all the personalities at the club with the interests of the club ahead of anything else.
On the same day, Ibrahim Kirya was officially unveiled as the new head coach, replacing Kefa Kisala who was sacked on Sunday night.
Last Friday, the board announced the appointment of James Kizza as the new club chairperson for another four years’ tenure.
URA F.C Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Edward Kulubya, notified the FUFA CEO, Edgar Watson, the media, all the UPL clubs and secretariat about the latest developments at their club.
Kizza’s appointment came at a time when the post went vacant after the appointment of former chairman Ali Ssekatawa as the Director Legal and Corporate Affairs in the Petroleum Authority of Uganda.
Ssekatawa’s elevation meant he was illegible for the post of the club chairman as per the club constitution.
