Former SC Villa player Dan Walusimbi was arrested on Friday as he tried to access Pope Paul Memorial Centre in Rubaga to attend the Extra Ordinary Assembly of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA).

Walusimbi, who was dressed in a neat suit and purporting to represent the Uganda Players Association, was refused access by security at the gate, but he tried to find his way in claiming he is a stakeholder and should be let in. The police roughed him up as he continued to shout that it is his right to be at the venue and that no one should stop him.

Later Walusimbi was forced onto the Patrol pick-up that took him away.

The former player who even abandoned professional football in Europe has lately been very vocal criticizing the FUFA administration led by Lawrence Mulindwa.

In the Assembly which is also being attended by three representatives from Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), the Vice President in-charge of Finance Anthony Kimuli presented his report indicating that they have a proposed budget of 4.2 billion shillings for the 2012/13 compared to 3.8 billion last year.

He said FUFA has a surplus budget of over 178 million which has mainly come as a result of Uganda hosting many International games that the Cranes have been participating in. Kimuli thanked sponsors like MTN Uganda, Airtel, National Insurance Corporation, Orange and others who have supported in the development of football.

 

The assembly is to amend the FUFA constitution and decide on how the national football league is to be managed.
