The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has de-registered Kigezi Good Samaritan FC (KGS FC) from the Big League effective Tuesday 29, October 2013. The letter also informs the league that all fixtures involving Kigezi Good Samaritan are cancelled.
The decision to de-register the club was communicated in a letter from the FUFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Edgar Watson. The letter was addressed to acting Competitions Director and informed him that KGS FC had been banned from any FUFA sponsored competition.
The letter also informs the league that all fixtures involving Kigezi Good Samaritan are cancelled.
The letter informs the club that the action was taken because KGS FC had failed to meet its commitments to the competition.
The Kabale based club failed to honour their first game in Uganda’s second tier league against Kirinya FC from Jinja. Although the match was at their home ground in Kabale, Kigezi Samaritan FC did not turn up for the match.
Team management later wrote to FUFA explaining that they had been in the process of leaving their home ground in Kabale and shifting to Kampala.
The information was relayed by KGS FC President Herbert Kabafunzaki to the FUFA President Moses Magogo ref: KGSFC/FUFA/01/2013.
He argued in the letter that KGS FC had decided to move from Kabale to Kampala to enable the club to be more professional.
But FUFA responded by informing KGS FC that they had relocated without express permission from the football body.
FUFA informed the club that at the least it was supposed to spend two years with Kabale as their home ground after qualifying for the Big League before moving.
Herbert Kabafunzaki, the club's director, could not be reached for a comment on the matter.
KGS is 8th on the Elgon group of the FUFA big league with three points from one game played so far.
