Sports Club Villa have dominated the news for the last 3 or 4 days, at least, for the wrong reasons in the wake of incidents that happened at St. Mary’s stadium in Kitende.
SC Villa fans are believed to have caused violence and vandalized property on Saturday as their team lost 1-0 to SC Vipers in the Uganda Premier League.
Several people have come out to condemn the acts of violence including Vipers patron Lawrence Mulindwa and Startimes Vice President in Uganda, Aldrine Nsubuga who are the sponsors of SC Villa.
The latest is Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) President Eng. Moses Magogo who has also come out to vehemently condemn the regrettable acts.
“We are proud that the league has started to regain its roots, we are happy that fans have returned to the stadiums and people have picked interest in local clubs,” he started.
“But we are equally against violence, vandalizing of property and acts of indiscipline and as Fufa, we not only condemn but we are ready to put these people to book,” Magogo stated while addressing the media on Wednesday at Fufa House, Mengo.
Magogo indicated that as Fufa, they shall not allow a handful of individuals that are well known to take the game to the dogs.
“This is a handful of individuals some of whom have been causing violence for over 20 years. We shall not tolerate barbaric acts and allow hooligans to even destroy the few facilities we have,” Magogo asserted.
In the same currency, the Fufa boss scoffed at club officials and referees who have also failed to execute their work appropriately and promised to put them to book.
“This also goes to the referees who are not officiating independently and showing bias, we shall not hestate to throw them out of the game,” he said.
“This morning, I have talked to the referees committee and we shall access the performance of the match officials and come out with a detailed report,” Magogo noted.
