They further asserted that whoever will not heed this call should know that transport allowances will not be paid starting next season.

However, most of the players contacted by ChimpReports about the development criticized the decision which they say was taken without consulting them.

A section of the club’s players revealed that they have already started pursuing their release letters so that they can join other clubs.

“I am not ready to stay in the barracks and besides, I have a lot that I do every day after training,” said one of the players.

Five years back, the army team tried out converting all its players into Army officers but many refused and as a result the team lost players like Dan Ssebuliba who rejoined Masaka LC by then.

Simba coach, Fred Kajoba who doubles also as Cranes’ goalkeeping coach when contacted, refused to comment on this development saying, “You need to ask the club’s top officials because that is not my duty.”
