The battle for SC Villa’s top seat will be a two horse race. The incumbent Ben Misagga will have only one person to worry about.
Kanungu based business man Atwiine Sostin has been confirmed today as the only man aside from the incumbent, who officially expressed interest in the biggest position at the country’s most successful football club.
According to Evelyn Asiimwe the chairperson of the club’s electoral commission, the two candidates will go through a vetting process after each paid a non refundable nomination fee of 10 million Uganda shillings.
On picking his nomination form at Kati Kati restaurant in Kampala, Atwiine was quick to send a warning to his foe who was represented by his deputy Moses Musasizi.
The business man bragged about his wealth and ability to topple the incumbent.
‘Am a Mukiga, fear has never been my worry. Ben Misagga having been the president doesn’t scare me and am not intimidated at all.
I have my money, and I have a republic in Uganda called the Mega republic. I have all the qualifications to stand against him.’ Atwiine owns Mega Supermarket.
The two have not later than Friday 29th June to return the nomination forms to the Kampala golf club before being vetted to decide if they meet all the requirements for their names to appear on the ballot paper.
52 branches have confirmed attendance in this years 14th July club extraordinary congress with six participants representing each branch to meet in Masaka and vote for the next President of the Country’s most successful football club.
Last week, former FUFA vice president Dennis Mbidde openly launched his bid for the presidential post but to the dismay of many, his name was not even mentioned at the presser.
