Kyetume FC players reached out to this website to express their dissatisfaction over the life they are living after the club failed to pay their monthly salaries for close to 3 months.

A player who preferred anonymity revealed to The Touchline Sports that they were living in terrible conditions and some of them did not receive the relief food supplied by FUFA to UPL clubs.

“We are in a terrible condition and scared of what could come next. We have not received any single coin from the club for the last 3 months yet we have expenses to clear.”

“The worst part is that some of us never received the relief food provided to us by FUFA so we don’t even have what to eat and feed our families,”

However, Kyetume FC Technical Director, Jackson Mayanja refuted the allegations saying that this was stage-managed to tarnish ‘his good name’.

“Only Shaif Batte and Steven Kagoda did not receive this food but still, we compensated them with cash,” Mayanja said.

“So, no player should go around tarnishing my name just because he wants to push his agenda,” he added.

KCCA FC Head Coach Mike Mutebi is ready to axe 8-star players in preparation for the 2020/21 season. While speaking to The Daily Monitor, Mutebi revealed a list of 8 senior players at the Club that will face the axe before the 2020/21 season starts. Saddam Juma, Nicholas Kasozi, Jackson Nunda, Mike Mutyaba, Erisa Ssekisambu, Muzamir Mutyaba Jamal Malyamungu, and Simon Sserunkuma are the players believed to have been let go by the ‘Gaffer’.

Mutebi was quoted as saying,

“We have already notified these players that they are not in our plans and we wish them well. It is only left to the club CEO (Anisha Muhoozi) to give them farewell letters,”

Mutebi claims that some of the players like Serunkuma have failed to impress him plus the injury-prone Jackson Nunda and Sadam Juma who have failed to hit at least 50 appearances in a year.

StarTimes FUFA Big League side UPDF FC’s cerebrations for being promoted into the first tier league were cut short after a more than one club petitioned FUFA, questioning the manner in which the Federation decided the league and the tools used to decide promotion and demotion.

In the due course, FUFA called for a consultative meeting for both FUFA Big League Clubs and SUPL Clubs and hopefully, Wednesday 10th June will give us the final picture.

In the invitation, UPDF FC was categorized as a Big League club, something which has raised many eyebrows as the side was pronounced promoted to the StarTimes Uganda Premier League initially.

While speaking today on KFM, FUFA Communications Officer, Ahmed Marsha has clarified on the mouth-watering issue

“UPDF were categorized as FUFA Big League Club because Ndejje University petitioned to FUFA and the case is still running. therefore, the promoted team from the Rwenzori Group was rescinded”

Social media went viral after receiving news of Uganda Cranes forward, Joel Madondo’s alarming situation in Morocco.

“The club dumped me in the apartment for which I have to pay $1,000 (Shs3.7m) per month yet they have not paid me a salary,” Madondo told the Daily Monitor.

“My agent has been paying for the apartment and I will pay him back from my salary.”

“Since I came here they have only assisted me with 14,000 Moroccan Dirham (about Shs5.2m) on February 20, which I used to buy flour and started making chapattis. You can’t imagine I have been eating chapattis and tea since I came so that I save the little I have.”

This news saturated all over the internet like wildfire and this caused chaos from both fans and football administrators.

However, the same player released a video on his social media explaining how everything is okay with him. It is controversial. Isn’t it?
