A few days ago, SC Villa closed nominations for the club presidency ahead of the August 28 polls. Of the three contenders; Dennis Mbidde, Joseph Kizito and Medard Lubega Ssegona.
Ssegona is a fresh face and comes with an unblemished record in Villa, having not been party to any of the intrigue and fights within the club.
“This is the right time, and I’m new, I bring new ideas and that is what our club needs,” Ssegona, a long-time Villa fan told the journalists.
In other words, he comes as a neutral in a club with so many stakes and powerbrokers at play. He is the only candidate who will not dance to Magogo’s tune. Also, the fact that a Villa president is automatically a FUFA delegate gives me high hopes that he will challenge Magogo’s authoritarian grip on the federation. We will not expect Ssegona to be part of things like the usual passing of unpacked FUFA budgets and accountabilities.
