The assembly was held on Wednesday to discuss issues pertaining to club licensing and the 2020/21 season
Busoga United chairman Diana Hope Nyago has dismissed reports they sent a representative to the consultative meeting convened by Federation of Uganda Football Association (Fufa) on Wednesday.
Fufa had called the Premier League clubs to attend the meeting which sought to discuss matters pertaining to the 2020/21 season as well as club licensing issues.
Busoga were among the nine clubs that had objected to the meeting but a Mr Amin Bbosa was at Mengo House and claimed to be representing the club.
“I am confused with this whole situation,” Nyago told Football256.
“I am the club chair and I had refused to go, I have organised other club chairmen not to go. And even still if I wanted to delegate, I would have authorised a club official to go. [Amin] Bbosa is not a club official so I am asking who authorised him to go, and as who?
“These people are just posing; they do not know anything about the club. Amin doesn’t know how the club is run and doesn’t know even the directors of the club.”
Nyago further claimed Fufa’s President Moses Magogo’s arm-twisted clubs into attending the meeting.
“But what is wrong with [Moses] Magogo? What is wrong with these people?” Nyago asked.
“The problem is not those he [Magogo] is arm-twisting into attending because I am told they have been sending cash to these people to come and pose after realising they have no quorum for the meeting.
“This meeting was to be attended by club chairmen, but I ask the organisers to prove that these people who are not chairmen are there under the authorisation from their clubs.
