Uganda Super League Limited has tasked Bunnamwaya Sports Club to explain why their blocked a television crew from Super Sports access to their match with Uganda Revenue Authority on June 10th. It follows complaints that Bunnamwaya, who beat URA 1-0, stopped the Super Sport crew from recording the game.
Jimmy Ebil Ssegawa, the Uganda Super League Limited (USLL) Chief Executive Officer says that they tasked the Buikwe based club for a written explanation before the board takes a decision. He explains that all teams signed the adherence deed, promising to allow super support access to record their games for broadcast because they are also league sponsors.
//Cue in:… On the 10th, June..
Cue out:..With our partners Supersport,”//
Interestingly Tadius Kitandwe, the chairman Bunamwaya FC who reportedly denied the Super sport crew access to record the game is also a member of the USLL Board. Kitandwe told URN that he refused to give the super sports cameramen access because USLL has never communicated to them in writing that their matches will be telecast live or even recorded.
He also says that the camera men declined to identify them and had no equipment that looked like that of super sport. Kitandwe says that he is ready to defend his decision before the USSL board. Despite the mishap, Kitandwe is concerned that his team has not received any live coverage of its matches yet some of the teams that signed the adherence deeds late had chance for live games.
