AUPL: KCCA FC in Trouble Over Ineligible Player

Jinja Municipal Council Hippos have lodged a complaint to FUFA questioning the registration status of left foot winger Isaac Muleme at KCCA FC, remedy ChimpSport has learnt.

Muleme came in as a substitute in the 70th minute replacing Brian Majwega in KCCA FC 2-1 win over their Jinja counterparts on Friday at the Philip Omondi stadium, troche Lugogo.

However, more about sources close to JMC told this website that they are questioning his eligibility to feature in that claiming he wasn’t cleared by SC Villa.

“We had received a letter from the CEO Mr. Edgar Watson that barred Muleme and several other Ex- Villa players from featuring for other clubs until their issues with Villa were sorted,” the source that preferred anonymity said.

She added, “He played against us and thus want to know his status because SC Villa had not released him officially.”

Cleared or not Cleared?

ChimpSport tried to reach Fufa competitions and also the communications managers but they couldn’t pick calls to clarify.

However, the CEO of the Uganda football Players Association Mr. Paul Mukatabala said that Muleme and the other players had been cleared to play for other clubs by the status committee.


“Six players brought the case to us (UFPA) for help. We petitioned the Fufa Players Committee which handles these disputes and when that Committee sat, it released these players,” he said.

“Villa appealed the ruling but again the Fufa Appeals Committee upheld the players’ status committee decision. That ruling negates the earlier letter from CEO’s desk.”

The other players released are Mugabi Jonathan, Katende Midi, Sebwato Nicholas, Kasibante James and Ssebuliba Abdul.
