Newly elected CAF Executive Committee Member for CECAFA Eng. Moses Magogo has said that CECAFA needs concerted efforts to bring back the football glory days in the region.
Magogo who is also the FUFA President says that the entire region needs to pull resources together in football for the current and future generations to enjoy the game.
Magogo witnessed the CECAFA club championship final on Sunday in Kigali won by Ugandan champions KCCA FC-a trophy that had the Lugogo based side for close to 41 years.
While at the VIP Lounge at Entebbe Airport, Eng. Magogo addressed the media and took them through the plans ahead.
‘We shall hold a strategic meeting with all the FA Presidents of the CECAFA Region here in three weeks’ time. We must reorganize ourselves to stand any chance to compete favorably with the rest of the African teams on the continent’ noted Magogo
‘If we are to achieve our vision of becoming the number one football nation in Africa on and off the pitch we must have strong neighbors in football. There are countries in our region that would be bidding to host big competitions but it should be more important that we prepare ourselves competitively’ added Magogo.
