FUFA referee Ronald Kirangwa has had his three year ban reduced to six months, a statement seen by this website can confirm.
Kirangwa and his two assistants were on the day at wrong end of decisions in a 1-1 draw between hosts Express and visiting Vipers at Wankulukuku in November last year.
Notably, Tito Okello’s late equaliser was allowed to stand despite the striker being miles in an offside position when he scored.
The striker allegedly provoked the home fans when he put his finger on his lips, an action which is translated as silencing the vocal fans.
Wanyama’s two months ban ended in January but Kirangwa will have his ban reduced to six months, including those he was already served.
“Considering FUFA statutes, regulations and exercising the powers of the FUFA Appeals Committee under article 13 of the FUFA Disciplinary Code the Appeals Committee Rules as follows,” reads the statement which was signed by Diana Nabuuso the chairman of the FUFA Appeals Committee.
“Mr Kirangwa’s appeal is allowed. The three year suspension sanction is set aside and substituted with a six (6) months suspension. The suspension will include the time he has been serving.”
