Busiro head coach Simon Ddungu has threatened to throw in the towel citing unpaid arrears, The-SportsNation has learnt.
It is said that Ddungu, who was appointed earlier to replace Ronald Lujungu last month on his role at Busiro has not been in good terms with his bosses as regards to his payments.
“He was leaving actually, the committee just pleaded him to stay,” an inside source told The-SportsNation.
“The issue is that he has not received a single coin of his sign-on fee. They wanted to give him half before the unveiling but he refused and opted to wait for the full amount.”
Busiro North Member of Parliament Paul Nsubuga, will have to stabilize these new developments as the days to the new edition are fast approaching.
Ddungu’s assistant Ronald Ssali also wanted to leave recently over similar circumstances.
The developments come just days for the teams in Bulange group to head to Njeru. Bugerere, Kyaggwe and Buvuma are the other teams in Bulange group.
The four teams, including Busiro, are expected to report on Wednesday with action kick starting the following day.
As it looks, work is cut out for new chairperson Sirajje Ssegujja who replaced the departed Richard Byamukama.
In the last edition of the Masaza Cup tournament, Busiro finished third after they were eliminated by eventual Champions Gomba on the Semi final stage.
However, in the process, they lost some of their key players after the end of the tournament. Quick to mention is Arafat Usama who joined Uganda Premier league side KCCA FC and talisman Gerald Ogweti who crossed to Kyaggwe.
