Mugisha is a senior multi sports administrator and an educationist who is the proprietor of the Standard Junior and High Schools.
With a wide range of knowledge and experience in administration, he is undoubtedly a favorite candidate to settle the flaring internal “Cold war” amongst UNF administrators.
As the FEASSSA president and Uganda Secondary Schools Sports Association (USSSA) treasurer and Technical Director football International Schools Federation (ISF), Mugisha knows the importance of harmony and stability in UNF and his prayer to God is to have an end to the internal and external wrangles at end of this meeting.
Netball is one of the most famous sports onto USSSA and the FEASSSA Championships which can’t miss onto the menu card.
Since 2002, there hasn’t been any other netball champion school from outside Uganda in the FEASSSA Championship which greatly contributes to Uganda’s overall rank in the schools regional pinnacle games.
There has been an internal and external conflict within UNF since late November manifesting from a wide range of issues.
Two of the top executive members; Richard Muhumuza (Vice president technical) and Aminah Mande (General Secretary) have since been banned for taking the sport’s matters to courts of law which is contrary to the UNF constitution and the publicity secretary Yahaya Ssengabi suspended for misconduct from the federation management.
