It had been speculated talk for long!

Many circles pointed to the end of an epoch for KCCA Football Club’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), David Tamale, now former.

Eventually, the cat has been finally let out of the bag.

At long last, the club Board of Directors have replaced Tamale with Josephine Namukisa, who is serving in acting capacity.

To this effect, Tamale has been appointed as Executive Assistant to Chairman Julius Raymond Kabugo.

This was contained and confirmed in a statement released to the media on Tuesday afternoon.

The statement reads in part;

In  exercise of its mandate given under the KCCA FC Limited Board Charter has appointed Mr. David Tamale Executive Assistant to the Chairman of the Board of Directors, KCCA FC MR. Julius Raymond Kabugo effective June 27, 2017.

Ms. Josephine Namukisa has been appointed the Acting Chief Executive Officer of KCCA FC with effect from June 27, 2017 until a substantive Chief Executive Officer

Tamale’s office reportedly grew under intense pressure when he blessed the signing of former Express FC captain Saddam Ibrahim Juma with assurance the player would play in the CAF Confederation Cup straight away.

The gifted midfielder even traveled with the club to Morocco for the FUS Rabat game with the hope he would feature in the game, which never materialized.

Impeccable sources inside the club pin pointed to Tamale as the root cause of the saga.

Albeit the soiled transfer, Tamale has worked to his brim towards the professionalization of the club.

His office has for the past three seasons excelled with flying colours in the FUFA Club Licensing procedure.

Key documentations for the club have been secure and processed in their due urgency.

He leaves behind a legacy and foot marks worth to be emulated in a semi professional set up as the current Uganda’s football state.
