In a bid to promote the game of football in Entebbe Municipality, Mayor Vincent Kayanja DePaul on Monday inaugurated a nine member committee that will oversee all football related activities in the Municipality. This follows a partnership deal between the city of Wuhan, in China and Entebbe Municipal Council to promote the game of football between the two cities.
Entebbe F.C’s Mugisha Abdul Samad “Kagisa” was elected the chairperson of the governing body after he trounced Entebbe International’s Charles Kamya Kayanja in heated elections that were organized at the Municipal Council hall and were presided over by Fufa Representative Buganda Region Ssebagala Muzafalu. Mugisha Abdul polled 16 votes while Kamya Kayanja garnered only 07 votes.
I would like to thank the members for the trust they have given me. Our job as the football governing body is to promote the game of football in Entebbe Municipality. Let us remain united, transparent and cooperative. Let us walk the talk and avoid squabbles that will tear us apart, Mugisha Abdul Samad said shortly after being elected.
