846 Views Kabale, Western Region, Uganda
The Kabale-based Horizon FC has written to the Federation of Uganda Football Association demanding for a ruling in an appeal it lodged against Mbarara United FC. Horizon claims it lost its opportunity to join the national super league because during its decider match against Mbarara United, Mbarara hired a mercenary for the game. It says Mbarara United paid William Kikonyogo, a player registered with Kampala Pentecostal Church North, for the pivotal match, causing Horizon's defeat. Horizon FC lawyer, Mulema Mukasa, has written to FUFA giving it until the end of today to produce a judgment on the month long appeal. Mukasa says the FUFA competitions committee has erred in upholding the results of the Horizon-Mbarara United match, despite the proof of cheating. Mukasa says the judgment should be made before the super league begins this weekend because Mbarara United is playing in the league. If a ruling is not delivered, Horizon will file an injunction against the league at the High Court in Mbarara.
