The FUFA president in defence of high charges said the Uganda Police Force had asked for Shs70 m shillings to cater for its expenses to guarantee the security of fans and their property during the match at Namboole.

“We condemn this kind of extortion by the police. According to the Constitution and the Uganda Police Act it is mandatory for police to offer security for Ugandans and money for that purpose is allocated by Parliament in the National Budget,” said Mbabaali.

“Security at national football match like this one is part of the normal duties of police. Money for facilitating police should have been drawn from the police force,” observed Mbabali.

“According to our research, each officer was supposed to be paid Shs11, 000 that day to cater for the transportation, food and water. Police deployed 4,500 operatives which amount to Shs49m to ensure security at Namboole. Where is the balance?” wondered Mbabaali.

“IGP Lt Gen Kale Kayihura must ensure this money is returned to FUFA or paid back to the fans with immediate affect or else the DP will take the matter to court in public interest,” concluded Mbabaali.
