XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

Uganda puts national football association on accountability spot       

KAMPALA Uganda (Xinhua) -- The Uganda government has instructed the national football governing body to make a financial account of all sponsorship the revenues or face repercussions.

Charles Bakkabulindi, minister of state for sports told Xinhua in a recent interview the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has to account for money it gets from sponsors, Confederation of African Football and the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).

He said by end of July 13, the accountability must be sent to the ministry.

“Failure to do so will result into severe repercussions from this office,” the minister said in a letter sent to FUFA.

He said FUFA has refused to send the accountability since it was requested for in March this year.

“This is not only tantamount to contempt of authority but also a sign of lack transparency by the FUFA officials,” he said.

Bakkabulindi said that Uganda is not afraid of being suspended by FIFA over interference noting that FUFA has to oblige to the new regulations as set by government.

“We are not scared about a FIFA ban depending on what action we take. We have our style of running affairs in Uganda and every sports association must now send their accountability as per the new regulations,” he said.

Last week FIFA suspended Sudan because of government interference.

According to FUFA, the accountability as requested by government would be sent in due time.
