Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) president Moses Magogo has been appointed on the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) Executive Committee.
This followed a CAF Assembly that convened on Monday in Manama, Bahrain where the rest of the global confederations are meeting ahead of the FIFA Congress on 11th May 2017.
Magogo’s appointment is a historic feat for the country as he becomes the first Ugandan to be on the CAF Executive Committee.
As quoted by the official FUFA Website, Magogo remarked;
In recognition of the progress of football development in Uganda and contribution towards African football, I have been appointed a member of the CAF Executive Committee 2017 – 2021 and a member of the CAF Reforms Committee
Magogo is a co-opted member, meaning he can attend CAF meetings but has no voting rights.
