A referee officiating the match between Boroboro FC and Simba FC stirred confusion last evening, in Masindi when he disallowed a seemingly genuine score, two minutes after approving it.
Suleiman Mulima had Okayed a 79th minute goal scored amid a mix-up of players and falls.
The score, that would have been a hard-earned equalizer, sent Boroboro players celebrating.
But After checking on the Simba FC coach who had been brought down, Mulima instead called for a free kick, a couple of minutes later.
Just like everyone around, Mulima's turnaround seemed to have also confused Simba FC players, fans and even their technical bench most of who were evidently undecided on whether or not to celebrate.
Boroboro's protests sounded like Music to Mulima as players threatened to quit. George Lutalo, the coach of Boroboro FC burst into tears as he confronted Mulima into the pitch.
Mulima refused to comment on the development and quickly walked away after the match.
Lutalo told Uganda Radio Network , that Mulima's decision, is not strange to Ugandan football. He cliamed that Mulima is bent at seeing Boroboro, out of the national super league.
Lutalo adds that Boroboro will not appeal because no justice is expected.
//Cue in: "All Uganda referees..............."
Cue out: "........that can help."//
His Simba FC's counterpart Godfrey Kajoba however says maintains that the referee's decision must remain unquestionable because he remains final.
//Cue in: "But yeeeah tha...."
Cue out: "......was not a goal."//
Kajoba admits that Boroboro played a good game and seemed to have an upper hand, which he attributes to fatigue.
//Cue in: "Ya ya ya....."
Cue out: "......my players"//
Simba FC scored the lone goal through Godfrey Lubwama in the 10th minute.
Recently, Masindi stadium became Boroboro's home ground following Fufa's ban of Lango sports ground because of it's fan's hooliganism.
The high-flying crowds that swarm Boroboro at home are no more, while few people in Masindi have any interest in watching teams, both from away.
Yesterday's game was watched by about 150 people, most of whom did not pay the 1,500 shillings entrance fee, despite a heavy security presence by police and the Uganda People's Defence Forces.
