Ugandan soccer federation investigated for money laundering

07 October 2015, 15:21

Kampala — The Ugandan soccer federation is being investigated by the country's financial crimes authority for money laundering.

Uganda Financial Intelligence Authority executive director Sydney Asubo confirmed the investigation but declined to give further details.

Asubo says the authority had frozen the federation's accounts temporarily but has now re-opened them "so that we don't cripple their operations."

Decolas Kizza, head of finance at the soccer federation, says he is confident the investigation will show there had not been any wrongdoing.

The Ugandan investigation comes after FIFA was rocked by separate American and Swiss probes into bribery, racketeering and money laundering.

Some officials at the Ugandan federation say that about $1 million given to the country by FIFA has been misused.
