Moses Magogo has set his targets on reviving the ailing regional football body, Cecafa.
The Fufa president was speaking to local media for the first time since his election to the Caf executive committee representing the Central East region also known as Cecafa.
Magogo, who has often crossed paths with the current Cecafa leaders on their modus operandi, believes things need to start changing for the best.
“We all know that Cecafa is not in the best condition,” Magogo acknowledged. “Those who lived earlier know how Cecafa was; it was the only out of the six Caf zones that used to organize competitions.
Today, it is the other way round. So, I come at a moment when we must revive our region to be able to organize competitions and develop.”
The Caf ExCo member has already notified fellow FA presidents in the region of a brainstorming meeting to be held in Kampala in three weeks’ time.
He argues that, for Uganda to prosper, there is a need to have strong neighbors in the region.
“The eleven members will sit down and try to forge a way forward. Our vision in Fufa is to become the best nation on the continent in both on and off the pitch. To attain that, we must have very competitive neighbors,” he added.
The twelve nations in the region include; Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zanzibar.
