Reports: Tooro United sold off to Ben Misagga

Nyamityobora Football Club’s relegation back to the FUFA Big League was a big blow to the fans, players, and some administrators, but not its president Eng Immanuel Ben Misagga.

Earlier on this week, reports alleged that Tooro United’s boss Smart Obed had sold off the team, but not clearly asserting the one who it was sold to.

However, resources indicate that Nyamityobora president bought majority shares in the club as one of his campaign to become the next FUFA president. It is alleged that Misagga bought off the club with a total of Two Hundred Million shillings (Ug Shs 200,000,000).

The club started participating in FUFA competitions as Soana FC before their transformation to Tooro United that was accompanied by the change venue from Kavumba to Buhinga Stadium in Fortportal.

Amidst new developments, Misagga was earlier this week summoned by the FUFA Adjudicatory Chamber of the Ethics Committee over allegations of match-fixing as it breaches FUFA competitions rules.

In a letter dated May 28, 2019, the investigation avers that while Ben Misagga was the acting SC Villa President, he attempted to influence a match official so as to obtain an improper advantage for SC Villa during a game in Jinja.

This seemingly aimed at weakening Misagga’s profile in Ugandan football history.

The hearing was scheduled for June 6, 2019, at Fufa House Mengo.
