Following the directive to Uganda Premier League giants SC Villa to follow FUFA directives for guidance on how to hold presidential elections and the consequent cancellation of the same, one of the Presidential Aspirants; Sostine Atwine has run to court
“I will go to court, I will sue, it is my club but I will not accept people to spoil the club. And when you go to court, every dirt that has been in the club will come out and we will streamline the club,” Atwine said.
Atwine said ever since the club announced the presidential elections, he has cast all his resources in preparations for the elections that were initially set for July 14, 2018.
“I paid everything, I have been mobilizing and organizing delegates in over 52 centres,” he said.
The fire spitting Atwine has given the club 24 hours to get themselves together or be slapped with a court suit. “I want them to sort themselves as first as possible. They have a very short time to tell me they have seen their mistake because for me I am set.”
On the 27th June, 2018, the club’s Electoral Commission declared the incumbent Ben Misaga and Sostine Atwine as the two eligible candidates for the SC Villa presidential seat.
However, days later, concerned fans wrote to FUFA disputing the elections. On July 6, FUFA wrote to the club halting the elections until December to allow it follow guidelines.
