After hours of confusion and uncertainty, the Africa Nations Cup tie between the Uganda Cranes and the Lesotho Crocodiles has finally been fixed for Tuesday afternoon.
The resolution was reached during a meeting this morning between the Football Association of Lesotho and the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA), held in the Lesotho Capital, Maseru.
FUFA Chief Executive, Charles Masembe, says the Tanzanian referees arrived in Lesotho yesterday and the match will now be played tomorrow at 4:00pm Ugandan time.
The match flopped yesterday after the Tanzanian refereeing officials got stranded in South Africa due to lack of entry visas allowing them into Lesotho.
The Ugandan delegation led by FUFA President, Lawrence Mulindwa, rejected the South African refereeing team that had been brought in to salvage the situation.
FUFA blames the confusion on the host Country saying they failed to make arrangements for the referees to arrive in time for the match.
Masembe says FUFA cannot rule out foul play wondering why the Football Association of Lesotho was able to hurriedly organize for the South African officials to travel to Lesotho and not the Tanzanians who were stranded in the same Country.
He however says FUFA will not make any formal complaint to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Africa's Football governing body over the Lesotho incident.
Meanwhile FUFA has said they will not take any disciplinary action against the Cranes Team Captain Ibrahim Sekagya who did not turn up for the crucial Africa Nations Cup tie.
There has been speculation about possible disciplinary action against the Argentine based Cranes skipper, after he backed out leaving his coach Laszlo Csaba, with an uphill task to identify a replacement.
But Charles Masembe says Sekagya has communicated to FUFA explaining his absence. Masembe says Sekagya who led the Cranes to a 2-1 victory against the Super Eagles of Nigeria two weeks ago had international commitments.
Sekagya will be leaving his Argentine club Arsenal de Serrandi after signing a deal with Austrian champions Red Bulls Salzburg.
