New Big league side Katwe United FC have claimed that FUFA has been a main catalyst in the club’s ongoing struggles.
Katwe have lost four games straight and are rooted at the Elgon group with just four points.
The side, that parted ways with coach Hassan Mubiru and appointed Nicholas Kabonge, face Paidha at home before a trip to play Kataka FC in Mbale.
Club president who doubles as the Member of Parliament Makindye West Allan Ssewanyana, accused the Federation of denying his players licenses.
“The poor performance stems from the deliberate disorganisation caused by football governing body, FUFA, in licensing our players where key of them were not availed licenses including our two standby goalkeepers,” reads a statement in part.
“Imagine, currently, our lead shot stopper Eric Dhaira is on suspension for the next four matches – we are using a defender in goal. FUFA denied us the opportunity of bringing in another goal keeper. The more we try to organize ourselves, the more FUFA frustrates us it hurts.
“We want to remind FUFA that they are not only frustrating us as a club, but also the entire Kampala and Buganda region football Association, so whatever you (FUFA) do, ought to be in the interest of football not politics.”
Katwe In Turmoil
Katwe United presented fake national IDs in process of acquiring FUFA players licences, and accepted their wrong doing with an apology letter to FUFA.
FUFA, in a letter released on November 7, says that: “Forgery is a heinous crime that can only be forgiven after undergoing the due process of the FUFA judicial process under a competent body.”
The matter has been forwarded to the FUFA ethics and integrity committee for further action and guidance.
