Incumbent FUFA president and CAF Executive Committee member Moses Magogo will face with former FUFA Vice President Mujib Kasule in August 5 federation polls at Masindi hotel.

The two aspiring candidates returned the bank slips to the FUFA Electoral Committee chairperson Samuel Bakiika on Wednesday afternoon.

Bakiika, a city auditor in return handed each of the two aspiring candidates nomination fees that will return on Friday.

Kasule, accompanied by SC Villa acting CEO Valley Mugwanya picked and returned the bank slips on Wednesday evening moments after Magogo had set foot at the FUFA House main gate.

He then booked Friday (2:30 p.m) as the time of returning the nomination forms.

Magogo, whose vice president Darius Mugoye had picked for him the bank slips a day earlier submitted the fully paid slips at 3:50 p.m.

The two aspiring candidates embraced each other after the exercise as they greeted in the typical Islamic way, As-salāmu ʿalaykum, loosely translated as “peace be upon you”
