Referee to Handle Kenya, Lady Cranes Match Named

Refree Peris Mukoko

The aborted Uganda cup finals that were held at Kyamate sports grounds in Ntungamo is still fresh talk in town, tadalafil with different views from the rival sides, the federation and other stakeholders.

The match was abandoned just eighteen minutes to the end with SC Villa on the driving seat after Erisa Ssekisambu scored a controversial penalty that sparked the chaos.

Kyamate was agreed to beating off stiff competition from another playground deep ahead in Kisoro town in Western Uganda both of which were shortlisted thanks to Fufa’s regional rotational criteria of taking the game to the grassroots.

Prior to the match, several people had raised concerns about the quality of pitches/stadiums being used in the finals that include the poor grounds earlier used like the Mbale Municipal stadium and Pecce stadium found in Lira. Kyamate was not different.

On arrival to the playground (Kyamate), one would fail to locate exactly where the ‘stadium’ was, not unless you see the perimeter fence surrounding the playing area and the marked pitch. Otherwise there is no worthy stadium to mention of.

Long black polythene worked as part time fence to prevent passersby from having a full view of the proceedings while the shaky wooden stands were only ‘completed some hours to kickoff. The ground was very hazardous surrounded on one side by a wet swamp and freshly trimmed bush on another.

The perimeter fence was still fresh but with weak wooden poles and quality barbed wire covering. A portion of it was later brought down giving way to the pitch invasion just on its first day at work!

Truly, there was no sporting credentials that Kyamate possessed to be awarded such a high tense and well attended match.
