Scandalous: Moses Magogo, president of the Uganda Football Federation, sanctioned by the United States government


Moses Magogo, the influential president of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA), has found himself embroiled in a major international scandal. The United States government sanctioned Magogo due to his association with Parliament Speaker Anita Among, who is the subject of allegations of significant corruption involving public funds.

The damning statement from the US government details the reasons for these punitive measures. “Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, is designated due to her involvement in a significant corruption case relating to her leadership of the Ugandan Parliament,” the government said.

The fallout extends beyond Amongg, involving her spouse, Magogo, and other high-profile Ugandan officials and their spouses, all now barred from entering the United States under Section 212(a). )(3)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Magogo, an emblematic figure of Ugandan football, is today facing an uncertain future. As FUFA President, his role in shaping the landscape of the sport – from grassroots development to international representation – is essential. The sanctions threaten his ability to travel, participate in crucial meetings and secure vital funding and partnerships for Ugandan football.

The repercussions of this scandal are profound. Magogo’s international credibility is at stake, which could jeopardize FUFA’s relationships with key sponsors and global football organizations like FIFA and CAF.

The governance and future of Ugandan football hangs in the balance as this explosive situation evolves, leaving fans and stakeholders in suspense for the next chapter in this gripping saga.
