ChimpSport has been reliably informed that FUFA received Shs 400m from the tournament organisers which was supposed to go to the Cranes after the team settling in the third position.

However, Cranes players were shocked by the envelopes which were secretly handed over to them one by one.

One player, who preferred anonymity, told ChimpSport that he “nearly burst into tears when I opened my envelope only to find peanuts”.

Apparently, each player was handed a miserable Shs 1m.

It should be remembered that 29 players graced the cranes squad that travelled to South Africa, which means that, FUFA released only Shs 29m out of the massive Shs 400m.

According to inside sources, this money was meant for Cranes as a team but shockingly, the Federation (that shouldn’t have a share of it at all) took a mouth-watering Shs 371m.

“We were first surprised by the way the function was organised contrary to the earlier salary pay functions which involved big media coverage,” continues the player.

Critics attribute to the poor relationship which the current FUFA spokesperson, Ahmed Hussein, has created with the press.

“At least Mulindwa understood how to handle such things,” remarked another player.

Rogers Mulindwa’s administration was highly credited when it came to catering for players’ remuneration.

Another player who was in a sombre mood warned that football may go back to the dogs “if FUFA doesn’t check its greed”.

The Squad that was paid the alleged “peanuts” includes: Benjamin Ochan, Ismael Watenga, F. Oringa, Savio Kabugo, Nicholas Wadada, M. Mpuuga, R. Aloro, I. Kazibwe, S. Namwanja, Deniis Guma, Isaac Muleme, I. Ntege, Ayub Kisaalita, Richard Kasagga, J.Ntambi, Y.Mugerwa, Brian Majwega, Simon Okwi, Joseph Mpande, Said Kyeyune, Oscar Agaba, Vincent Kayizzi, R. Kisekka, Tom Masiko, A.Kyambadde, E.Ssentamu, C. Asiku, U. Kasumba, Francis Olaki.

This is not the first time such is happening; the latest being the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup help in Kenya after which players were given Shs 10,000 as transport.
