This time round, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Muzafaru Ssebagala, who had been previously fired after one game at Masavu has been relieved of his duties with immediate effect.

Ssebagala’s duties will now  be executed by a former CEO at the club, Hamza Jjunju.

For starters, Jjunju had resigned his duties back in the days when Nakiwala had just taken office off ‘radical’ means of administration.

“Yes. I am back to serve for the good of Express Football Club. This is the best club in the country with a legacy to protect. Express’ glory days will be restored” Jjunju confirmed to Kawowo Sports on Monday.

Some of Ssebagala’s grey areas and incompetence as an administrator were in the docket of decision making.

The new acting chairperson Hassan Bulwadda was named last Friday after a silent fans’ coup requested the club board to relinquish Nakiwala off her duties for incompetence, inexperienced leadership, dictatorial tendencies among other vices.

Nakiwala, who remains as the third FUFA Vice President was thus sent on a forced leave.

Bulwadda is expected to name a new working team by Thursday.

Express Football club remains arguably one of the best supporter clubs in Uganda.

The Red Eagles has perhaps struggled in the previous seasons with administrative, technical and financial woes.

After 18 matches, Express has managed only four wins, 3 draws and 11 loses as they are now rock bottom on the 16 team log with just 15 matches.
