Ugandan football is in grief and mourning following the demise of John Mutenda, a lifelong KCCA FC chairman who passed away on April 26.

KCCA FC interim head coach Jackson Mayanja, a club legend at that too, has joined the many paying tribute to the fallen chairman.

Mayanja believes that the club has lost a fan, a father figure, an administrator and part of the club's history.

"It's a sorrowful time for KCCA FC; we have lost a giant as a club and country. Mr Mutenda was a father figure, a fan, an administrator, and was also part of our history," Mayanja noted.

"During my first stint as a coach here, he helped in many ways, especially the players' welfare, which we lacked."

Mayanja added: "We are going to treat his demise as motivation to work tirelessly to win the league title. So, if we win the league this season, we should dedicate it to Mr Mutenda."

John Mutenda served in various capacities at KCCA FC, but most notably, in the 1980s and 1990s, he served as a member of the club executive.

He then became Vice Chairman to Abraham Byandala from 1993 to 1996. He also deputized Godfrey Kiseka as he played a crucial role in sourcing club funds during dire times when he served as deputy mayor to Godfrey Nyakana.

John Mutenda is the father to Ian Mutenda, the Soltilo Bright Stars technical director, a StarTimes Uganda Premier League side.

KCCA FC, formed 60 years ago, has won 13 league titles and ten domestic cup titles, along with one CECAFA Kagame Cup producing countless top players who have played for the national team, the Cranes.
