The 2019 Federation of Uganda Basketball Associations (FUBA) Annual General Assembly will take place late February.

Unlike last two gatherings, the February 24 assembly will be elective to usher in the new executive but the spotlight will be on the presidential race.

With current president Ambrose Tashobya barred by the federation statute from running again, a new person will steer basketball for the next four years.

And vying for the top seat will be two individuals who have been serving as vice presidents in different capacities.

Nasser Sserunjogi who has been in charge of administration will go head-to-head with Grace Kwizera who has been in charge of marketing and public relations

“Yes… I’m serious as ever,” Kwizera said when asked about his ambitions. “I have been managing the Junior NBA Programme and I have been VP Marketing for the federation. I have been part of the management of the national team, so I believe I’m the best candidate,” he added.

Like his opponent, Sserunjogi believes he is the best candidate for the job.

“Ambrose (Tashobya) has done a great for our game and I would not oppose him if he contested again but the constitution bars him, so I offered myself,” Sserunjogi says.

“I have been the VP admin, basically heading the secretariat for the last four years which is pretty much the heart of the federation and without doubt I’m the most suited.”

Franklin Kaweru is the Editor in Chief of Kawowo Sports. He is an ardent basketball enthusiast.
