Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana has left his role as Katwe United Chairman, The-SportsNation.com sources have confirmed.
Ssewanyana has revealed the development to club fans on Friday evening during a fans meeting held at Katwe.
“I am tired of the abuses from the fans yet at the same time FUFA is against us. I am going to let you (fans) choose your own leadership and I will be watching from the sides,” Ssewanyana told the fans.
In what looked like a difficult decision to take, the MP promised Sh20M to the club every year as part of the sponsorship.
The embattled club occupy rock bottom of the Elgon group in Big League with just five points after the end of first round.
“Even though we bring new players, we may fail to move a distance. FUFA has been against us from day one. The referees have been biased throughout and we cannot do anything about that,” Ssewanyana added.
“I feel like I have accomplished my mission of making Katwe United a formidable team, I have laid a good foundation like that which was laid for big clubs like SC Villa. And every one is talking about us now. Many want to coach or play for this club. We are known.
“However, everything has a beginning and an ending”.
Katwe beat Kajjansi United to storm the Big league for the first time.in the club’s short history.
The good preseason preparations that were highlighted by singing experienced players saw the club branded by many as top favourites for a straight promotion to top flight.
Under coach Hassan Mubiru, the side had a perfect start when they beat Light SS to take maximum points on match-day one of the 2019/20 FUFA Big league.
However, the club has failed to pick another victory. They sacked Mubiru before appointing promotion king Allan Kabonge but few or nothing has changed.
Mainly, Ssewanyana has accused FUFA for denying his club licences for the players. However, FUFA recently revealed that Katwe have themselves to blame after using ‘fake’ IDs in the process of asking for the licenses.
