The same dynamics that create friendship chemistry in the first place can be part of the reason that close friends turn into enemies. And in the case of FUFA boss Moses Magogo and former SC Villa boss now with Nyamityobora FC Ben Misagga, it is money and power.
The two bitterly partied ways last year in November after falling out over a mouth-watering commission worth Shs2.7bn off the Shs9.52bn StarTimes deal for local football for over the next four years.
Despite external players picking interest in the matter, the dispute just escalated and as you read this, the matter is now with court as the defendants; FUFA, FUFA Super league Ltd, Star DTV (Uganda) Co. Ltd are expected to file their defence before deadline clocks and failure to do so, a judgment may be given in their absence.
“You are hereby required to file a defence in the said suit within fifteen days from the date of service of Summons on you in the manner prescribed under Civil Procedure Rules, as amended.,” part of the letter dated 11th April 2019 read.
