While FUFA president Moses Magogo is a way to allow investigations into his alleged role in the sale of the 2014 Brazil World Cup tickets, acting president Justus Mugisha is making changes.

The latest development in the corridors at FUFA house, Mengo is that the federation’s Chief Executive Edgar Watson has already stepped down from the role.

Watson who has held the role since 2009, is set to be appointed the first vice president in charge administration on the FA executive, a position that was previously held by Mugisha under Magogo.

Second vice president Darius Mugoye is likely to be named the new CEO while his position on the executive is expected to be filled later after the reshuffle.

Watson a former Cranes’ international and skipper is one of the most knowledgeable and respected football administrators in the region and is highly certified after undergoing football administration courses both from CAF and FIFA.

His appointment though will come as a shock especially from the appointing authority since Magogo believes he would be back in office after the two months of ongoing investigations.

The changes by Mugisha could be early indicators that there are minimal chances of Magogo returning to office as FUFA president after the investigation.
