The development was confirmed by the FUFA boss Moses Magogo during the weekly press conference at the FA headquarters in Mengo, Kampala on Wednesday.

All positions of Junior National teams and senior in the technical and administrative departments are now vacant.

This includes the position of the head coach, assistant coaches, trainers, video assistants, medical team and kit -men.

“All personalities interested in these vacancies should apply to FUFA,” Magogo said.

“This calls for all qualified people across the divide – Ugandans and non-Ugandans. We shall look at deliveries more than the faces or nationalities.”

Following the departure of Uganda Cranes’ former head coach Sebastien Desabre, whose contract was mutually terminated last Sunday, there was anxiety among the staff who remained.
