Federation of Uganda Football Association’s Referees disciplinary committee has banned the three officials that handled the one all draw between Express FC and Vipers.
The officials are accused of poorly handling the game at Wankulukuku that was highlighted with letting Vipers’s offside goal stand.
“FUFA has banned three officials of match number 54 of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League played on Wednesday 7th November 2018 at Muteesa II Stadium – Wankulukuku for poor officiation,” reads the document from FUFA, in part.
Assistant referee Kakembo Samuel has been banned for 5 years, centre referee Ronald Kirangwa gets three years as Lydia Nantabo (1st assistant ref) gets a 60 day ban.
Express FC (hosts) conceded a late equaliser when Tito Okello, in a clearly off side position, fired into the roof.
The officiating team was on the wrong end of many decisions on the day.
The document adds: “The 3 match officials (Centre Referee, 1st Assistant and 2nd Assistant) have been forwarded to FUFA Committee for Match Integrity for further investigation and decision.”
The Verdict in full:
The 2nd Assistant Referee Mr. Kakembo Samuel is banned from performing refereeing services of all FUFA organised and sanctioned Competitions for a period of 5 years.
The Centre Referee Mr. Kirangwa Ronald is banned from performing refereeing services of all FUFA organised and sanctioned Competitions for a period of 3 years.
