Just weeks after the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) intervened in SC Villa elections, incumbent Ben Missaga has resigned as the president of the club.
Missaga announced he is stepping down during a meeting held at Villa Park on Sunday Morning.
“My Leadership was supposed to end yesterday, said Missaga on Sunday.
“Unfortunately FUFA stopped us from continuing with club elections process, so I can’t continue as the club president, but I will remain a villa fan forever.
Missaga has of late been accused of selling a number of players in this summer’s transfer window, including club skipper Bernard Muwanga,Abel Etrude, Ibrahim Kiyemba among others.
In the same meeting, the aspiring club president Dennis Mbidde comforted Jogoo fans that the resignation of Missaga will not sink the club but he (Mbidde) is in place to resolve all the challenges that facing the club at the moment and he is going to bring back the club into the hands of the fans because it’s a fans’ club.
“I will concentrate on way forward, said Mbidde.
“I am not dwelling on what has happened today because we need Villa, a winning Villa and that’s the villa am bringing.
“We need villa that respect fans because it’s a fans’ club, finally sorting out the ownership of villa, let each fan buy one share at a cost of 100,000/- (One hundred thousand shillings) and we shall resolve that in the next one month.
It remains to be seen whether SC Villa elections will take place this year now that Missaga has left.
