The Vice President of the Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC) in-charge of administration, William Blick has said his boss Roger Ddungu is the worst thing to happen to Ugandan sports.
William Blick, the vice president of Uganda Olympics Committee-UOC in charge of administration has described his boss Roger Ddungu as the worst thing to have happened in Ugandan sport. His outburst on Friday evening came after a heated meeting at of the UOC executive committee at Lugogo.
According to Blick he has never seen high levels of unprofessionalism than he has witnessed since he started working with Ddungu. The outburst came after Ddungu, rejected a probe report from a committee he appointed to investigate his secretary Peninah Kabenge for alleged forgery. He accused Kabenge of forging his signature and using it to get nominated for an award in the United States.
The probe committee led by Blick tabled its finding on Friday, exonerating Kabenge but it was rejected by Kabenge. According to Blick, Ddungu told them that there was no way he would accept the report and vowed to appoint another tribunal led by a retired judge to investigate the accusations against Kabenge. He says that the executive committee pleaded with Ddungu to accept the report in vain.
Blick says that they exchanged terrible words with Ddungu because he was simply dictating on many issues. Ddungu reportedly also refused to speak about preparations for the forthcoming London Olympics saying he had already made arrangements.
Another Vice President Denis Galabuzi in-charge of technical matters also told URN that Ddungu demonstrated lack of seriousness when he disagreed with his executive. Galabuzi reasoned that there was no way Ddungu could refuse the probe report because he was the same person who instituted the committee which he must trust.
Blick says that they intend to hold a press conference next week to explain what has happened and a way forward. Ddungu has not yet commented as he could not be reached on his mobile.
