Federation of Uganda Football Associations has promised to conduct thorough investigations into KCCA’s coach statement on predetermination of match results in top flight league.
Responding to media statement made by Mike Mutebi ,FUFA said the matter is going to be handled carefully by statutory competent FUFA bodies.
“We maintain our position that all sporting results must be determined in line with the FIFA 17 laws of the game” FUFA wrote on its official website.
While appearing on one of the local television sports interviews ,Mike Mutebi said that in the last 20 years of top flight league there have been more insidious and corrosive form of match fixing that took place in the league.He said this involved a player or players, coaches, referees and football administrators manipulating match results.
“Iam a honest person ,yes am very honest .For the last 20 years Uganda premier league winners have been fixed, talk about Express Fc,SC Villa, KCCA, URA and Vipers tittles ” said Coach Mike Mutebi.He added on “Every team used to have a budget not only KCCA and this we found out at the continent where we are not aided ” He went on to say that he is candid and frank even if it requires him to put on his arm for sucrificing he will do it . Mutebi promised to expose them if asked to do so.
This is not the first time blatant cases ,excesses of football corruption and preliminary approaches to players , groundsmen, referees and others have been reported because in 2003 league was thrown into limbo when Villa put 22 goals past Akol Fc.
