The Corporate League members over the weekend voted overwhelmingly in favour of David Agaba Bashisha as the new Corporate League chairman.
In turn, the tough-talking Agaba, who was voted into office after Cipla’s Thomas Bamuteeze failed to beat requirements, promised better management in his two-year term.
“The most important thing is letting our actions speak,” he stated after the function held at Hotel Africana in Kampala.
“First thing is the image of the league must be enhanced. We must improve the technical aspects and also work out the issue of mercenaries. The advantage is that I work with NSSF so identifying mercenaries should not be a big challenge.”
“We must also improve our relationship with the team managers because we are here to enjoy. The standard in my tenure will be of a corporate level,” he added.
Agaba replaced Richard Okot as chairman whose reign ended with murmurs about his executive’s allegedly poor accountability.
“We had issues with accountability but we are sorting them out already,” Agaba promised.
The Corporate League which was first headed by Dennis Mbidde, is into its 16th year of existence.
Last year, there was an increase in the number of members with the 11 new entrants taking the tally to 46.
The league also expanded to athletics, darts, pool, swimming, netball and woodball as well as golf.
