Fifa suspends Uganda football boss Moses Magogo for two months
The Federation of Uganda Football Association (Fufa) President Moses Magogo has been suspended by world football governing body, Fifa.
Magogo was slapped with a two-month ban by the Fifa’s Ethics Committee under the adjudicatory chamber over the alleged sale of 2014 FIFA World Cup tickets.
“The chairman of the adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has ratified the plea bargain entered into by Mr Moses Hassim Magogo, President of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations and member of the Confederation of African Football Executive Committee, and the chairperson of the investigatory chamber,” read the Fifa Ethics Committee statement.
Investigations into Magogo’s case took the committee 14 months to come to a conclusion. His file was opened on July 23, 2018.
Besides that ban that will keep him out of any football activity until December, Magogo was also fined $10,000.
The embattled Ugandan football supremo was taken to Fifa by a Ugandan lawmaker, Allan Ssewanyana, who also doubles as Katwe United FC chairman, in 2017.
He had accused Magogo of selling the 2014 Fifa World Cup tickets that were allocated to Ugandans.
The suspension became effective upon the validation of the agreement by the chairman of the adjudicatory chamber on October 10 , 2019.
