Former Uganda Cranes assistant coach Sam Ssimbwa has decided he will take Sports Club Victoria University to court after they terminated his contract and failed to fulfill the compensation.
 
On Tuesday SC Victoria making a debut in top flight football in Uganda announced they had parted ways with Ssimbwa, his assistant Steven Bogere and goalkeeper’s Coach Abu Kigenyi and replaced them with former URA FC coach Alex Isabirye, together with Morley Byekwaso and Moses Oloya from KCCA FC.
 
Ssimbwa defended his performance with SC Victoria and noted that they were better off than the traditional teams likes Express, URA and SC Villa in the league.  Ssimba explained that even his compensation handed over to him on Wednesday had not been as per the contract.
 
But Ssimbwa told Uganda Radio Network (URN) in an interview that he is taking the matter to court because the contract has not been followed. He said that his team's contract was terminated abruptly and they were not fully compensated.

When contacted, the team’s Executive Director, Simo S. Dubajic said he could not comment and would sort out all those issues when he came back into the country.
 
However, Ssimbwa said their performance was perfect and they had suffered only one loss to table leaders Vipers FC. The coach said the contract stipulated that in case management of the team terminated the contract, they are meant to pay three months wages in advance which they did not do.
 
Ssimbwa, a former Uganda Cranes winger last season won the League title with Express. He also won the Uganda Cup with minnows Mbale heroes, handled army side Simba FC, Atraco (Rwanda) and Kenya’s Sofapaka FC.
