Maroons Order Ayieko, Staff Off Team

Maroons FC have ordered Charles Ayiekho and his Technical Team to stop taking charge of the first team.

This happened earlier this week after a training session at the Luzira Prisons Grounds where the team undertakes its training sessions.

Ayiekho and his personnel had written to the club Chairman Moses Kakungulu and other relevant officials requesting for their salary arrears to be sorted.

However, Kakungulu responded by ordering them to stop undertaking their duties effective Tuesday, May 20.

It is understood that Ayiekho and his technical team have not been paid for five months now.

The SportsNation has learnt that the former Busoga United tactician is owed UGX 12.5m in salaries while his assistants Eric Ndifuna and Abubakar Tabula are demanding UGX 7.5m and UGX 5m respectively.

This comes barely a month after Ayiekho advised the club Secretariat to suspend over six players and officials who were understood to be working against the current technical team.

Maroons have not been performing well lately as they have lost their last four league games and exited the Uganda Cup at the round of 16.

In Ayiekho’s absence, Muhammad Ssenfuma has been taking charge of training at the Luzira based side who return to Big League action on Thursday.

After losing to Paidha Black Angels in their last game, Maroons is hosting promotion hopefuls Gadafi FC in Luzira and it is expected that Ssenfuma will be in charge of proceedings.

The Prison Warders start the day second from bottom with just seven points accumulated from eight games.

They sit eight points off the final promotion play-off spot and nine away from the top of the Rwenzori group.
