The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), has suspended the Federation of Uganda’s Football Association (FUFA) president, Eng. Moses Magogo from taking part in any football-related activities for a period of two months after he confessed to selling World Cup tickets. A particular number of tickets is allocated to each federation prior to the World Cup and in 2014, Uganda was allocated 177 but these were allegedly not sold to Ugandans as is supposed according to a complaint lodged by Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana who is also the Katwe United Football Club chairman to FIFA. On Thursday, the world football governing body in a press statement said Magogo entered a plea bargain with the chairperson of the investigating committee. According to Wikipedia, a plea bargain is an agreement in a criminal case between the prosecutor and defendant whereby the defendant agrees to plead guilty to a particular charge in return for some concession from the prosecutor. In this case, the defendant receives a lesser punishment.
