Fufa Suspend Balikowa for Cancelling Express Goal

Barely a month after William Oloya was suspended for poor officiation, order the referees committee has again cracked the whip on Musa Balikoowa Ngobi.

Ngobi was the second assistant referee for match number 86, a derby between SC Villa Jogoo and Express FC on Saturday 29th October at Namboole.

“FUFA Referees standing Committee (FRSC) has suspended one of the assistant referees Ngobi Balikoowa Musa who handled the Azam Uganda Premier League match no.86 between SC Villa Jogoo Vs Express FC,” part of the statement reads.

Abdumalick Tabu scored a late winner from the spot to supplement on Umar Kasumba’s brace to give the Jogoos a 3-2 win.

The Red Eagles had taken the lead in the game through Sadaam Juma’s second minute strike and later on Simon Sserunkuma pulled level in the 68th.

Herman Waswa appeared to have scored the third goal which would be the equaliser late in the game but the second assistant flagged it off.

“The decision was taken after reviewing the Referees Assessors report and the video clip indicating that the decision taken by the second assistant referee Balikoowa in the 84th minute led to disallowing a would have been a valid third goal to visiting team (Express FC),” the committee revealed.
