Anyau: Referee Bakisula Must be Banned

BUL FC head coach Frank ‘Video’ Anyau has blamed his team’s 1-0 home loss to Sports Club Villa on Friday to poor officiation.

Ambrose Kirya struck in the last minute of the added time after a clumsy mistake in the BUL defence.

The centre referee was Ali Bakisula assisted by Isa Masembe and Ochom as the fourth official.

“The referee who officiated the game between Kirinya versus KCCA FC was suspended for 365 days. I am also waiting for the outcome of this one, search ” Anyau exclusively told ChimpSport.

“They should not play around with President Magogo’s job by staining Fufa’s work with their shoddy officiation. Some of these referees need to be banned for life. Even the fans saw and started pelting stones. Our fans are not used to that kind of behaviour.”

The game was halted twice in both halves after a section of rowdy home fans started pelting stones to the second assistant official but Anyau argues that it’s the referee’s poor decision that lead to such devious deeds.

“When you see them (fans) behaving like that then it means they have also seen it. You can see even after the game, fans still attacking the officials. It means they aren’t happy,” Anyau argued.

This unfateful event follows a series in which fans have been interfering with matches and to some extent assault match officials. The recent occurred at Bugembe where a KCCA FC fan was banned for beating up a referee and Kirinya fined after their fans rounded up the said fan.


Referee William Oloya was later suspended by the Fufa referees standing committee. Anyau hopes for the same measure to be taken against Bakisula.

“I am waiting for the federation to act. The referee was not fair and he is supposed to face action. These are things that peg our game.”
