Simba SC coach, Fred Kajoba will not appeal the five match ban imposed on him by the FUFA Super league board for inciting his players to abandon the game between Express FC and Simba FC on Friday 21st March at Wankulukukulu Stadium.
The ban, forbidding him from stadiums touclines for five matches and a Shs 0.75M fine was issued by the FSL board on Thursday and set records as being the longest suspension for an FSL coach this since the turn of the decade.
With many pundits expecting Kajoba who is also the national team’s goal keeping coach to be banned up to ten games, the Army side tactician struck a tone of repent following his sentence. ”It was an independent baised panel and it was a decision that I was going to accept,” Kajoba tells Red Pepper Online.
“I had no intention to appeal the decision whatever it was, and therefore was going to accept what they decided to do.”
“Just imagine what will happen to the so called ‘inferior teams’? They will also fall prey to suspect and biased refereeing. There is a conspiracy to help some teams survive relegation but when are watching boldly every step being taken.
With the match glued at 0 – 0 by the 84th minute, Express orchestrated a move involving Skipper Willy Kavuma towards the Simba half.
An infringement on a Simba player was neglected by the day’s referee, and the move paid off with a strike for the home team.
Reacting bitterly, Fred Kajoba ordered off his entire team in protest and the match was abandoned with barely 5 minutes to play.
Express were awarded three points and 3 points by the FSL board and they raise to 19 points from 21 games prior their Friday visit to Sports Club Victoria University at Namboole Stadium.
The ban Kajoba will not be on site for Simba’s season rundown starting with SC Villa this evening, KCCA, Police and Soana all in April.
Simba currently sit 11th in the table, one point adrift of 10th place Bright Stars.
