The FUFA Electoral Committee has put on hold elections in 10 districts across the country over various irregularities.

This was confirmed by Sam Bakiika, the chairperson of the Electoral Committee during a press conference held on Wednesday afternoon at Mengo, Kampala.

Elections for delegates for Regional Assemblies in Kisoro, Gulu and Nebbi have been put on hold.

Bududa and Nebbi will not hold the special interest groups under the referees category.

Also, elections for Nebbi and Kapchorwa districts under the coaches have been halted.

District F.A elections in Iganga, Mayuge, Bugiri, Mbale, Gulu, Bududa, Hoima and Nebbi will not take place until the grey areas are corrected.

Bakiika also mentioned the districts with irregularities where the district elections will not take place. Among these include Nebbi, Bududa, Iganga, Bugiri, Mbale, Hoima, Kisoro, Gulu and Kapchorwa.

“Elections for these districts have been put on hold not until their respective cases have been corrected,” Bakiika noted.

Bakiika also handled over some of the certificates of candidature for the respective successful candidates from the district football associations.

Dirisa Kasalirwe one of the three delegates from Rubaga received Moses Hashim Magogo’s certificate since the incumbent president is away on official duties in Egypt.
