Roger Hans Ddungu, the embattled president of Uganda Olympics Committee has receive one last chance to appear before his executive to defend himself or risk being thrown out during the Extra Ordinary General Assembly. Last month, the UOC executive suspended Ddungu for alleged abuse office and abuse of the UOC constitution.
The committee led by Denis Galabuzi, the UOC vice president gave Ddungu one day to hand over office and pave way for investigations. Ddungu ignored the directive insisting that he was the legally elected president of the Uganda Olympic. He accused the members of his executive of being power hungry. As a result, the committee summoned Ddungu to appear on Wednesday on the advice of the International Olympics Committee-IOC but he didn’t show up.
Denis Galabuzi, the UOC vice president says that Ddungu failed to appear the committee and didn’t give an explanation.
He says that they now given Ddungu one last chance to appear before the committee on Friday or else he is thrown out during the Extraordinary General Assembly that is due to be held. Galabuzi says that the UOC executive has set May 19th as the tentative date for the Extraordinary General Assembly as directed by IOC and requested for by the national Federations/Associations.
Trouble for Ddungu started when he appointed a tribunal led by retired Justice George Kanyeihamba without consulting his executive. Ddungu forcefully inaugurated the tribunal despite protests from his executive committee. On May 1, Ddungu wrote to IOC saying that the tribunal had started work as they try to resolve pertinent issues. In the letter seen by URN, Ddungu said the sooner the affected members cooperate and submit their issues to the tribunal as requested the better.
