Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has confirmed the appointment of retired FIFA Referee Yusuf Awuye as one of the four Ugandans handling the CAF match commissioning duties.

The development was communicated by the FUFA communications manager Ahmed Hussein on Wednesday during the weekly press conference.

“CAF maintained Uganda’s four slots for the match commissioners. This followed the untimely passing on of Hajji Abbas Ssendyowa. We are lucky that Uganda’s slot has been maintained and former FIFA Referee Yusuf Awuye has been appointed as the replacement” Ahmed noted.

Awuye joins Margret Kubingi, Aisha Nalule and Mike Letti as the other Ugandans handling the CAF match commissioning tasks.
