Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, has urged Ugandans to consider the lasting legacy they leave behind instead of merely concentrating on personal accomplishments and possessions.

She emphasized that a meaningful legacy should encompass more than just personal achievements or material possessions; it should also encompass the values, principles, and positive actions one imparts to others and the community.

Among conveyed this message during a funeral service for Darius Mugoye, the 2nd vice president of FUFA, held at Namirembe Cathedral in Kampala on November 8, 2023. She described the late Mugoye as a dedicated individual whose unwavering determination led to remarkable achievements in the world of sports, inspiring countless others to pursue their dreams.

Darius Mugoye was an integral part of FUFA, serving as the body’s second vice president under President Moses Magogo’s leadership. He was a delegate under former FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa and played a significant role in Uganda’s successful bid to co-host the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon). Additionally, he owned St. Mary’s Football Club, which participated in the Kampala Regional League.

His passing elicited an outpouring of grief on social media, with condolences and fond memories shared by football enthusiasts, current and former Uganda Cranes players, football administrators, and clubs. The deceased is set to be laid to rest in Sheema District on Thursday, November 9, 2023.
