FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo has for long advocated for fundamental changes in the Sports Sector in Uganda, highlighting a number of challenges it faces and finding solutions.
Bearing in mind that over 70% of Uganda’s population is below the age of 30 years, the country faces a challenge of unemployment and if solutions to this problem aren’t devised, a ticking time bomb awaits.
The Global Sports Economy is about 700 Billion USD which is Uganda’s annual budget for over 100 years that we are not partaking. One uneducated Ugandan player in the English Premier League would pay over 100 University Professors.
In his weekly show on 102.1 FUFA fm dubbed ‘Tutegeere Omupiira’ that returned to the airwaves after a long break, Mr. Magogo congratulated sports administrators that attained elective positions and promised to front sports in Parliament.
‘I first of all want to thank the Almighty Allah for guiding us to victory in the just concluded elections. I want to congratulate all leaders from the sports sector that successfully went through at all levels. This has been our dream as the sports sector to discuss our plight where it matters’ he said in his opening remarks.
He further asserts that Government should finance ALL Teams and Athletes representing Uganda in international competitions.
A National athlete should be identified at the right age from the remotest village, nurtured and developed using the right technical personnel, techniques and equipment. The athlete should be prepared and presented for competitions and should be handsomely rewarded where international excellence for our country is achieved.
Eng. Magogo has for long highlighted that the 1964 Sports Act is archaic, obsolete and dangerous. It needs to be replaced urgently with a law that addresses modern day sports challenges.
The current law places Sport in the Education Sector which is the remotest form of modern sport. The new law should define and regulate sports
