FUFA Boss, Magogo To Be Grilled Over Match Fixing

FUFA boss Moses Magogo has been summoned to appear before police to answer to questions into match-fixing at a national and league level.

Mr Magogo opted to hand over investigations into alleged match-fixing to the police after an outcry when the national team lost a game to Guinea last year.

Earlier this year the Uganda FA’s accounts were frozen as investigations continued.

And two players from the Ugandan premier league side Police Football Club were sacked for match-fixing two weeks ago.

Godfrey Kateregga and Saddat Kyambadde are the players that were sacked.

“These players confessed,” said the club’s chairman Assan Kasingye.

“Other players also admitted that the pair were always trying to convince them to throw away matches for money.”

In November, Azam Uganda Premier League side URA FC suspended Fahad Kawooya and Oscar Agaba for alleged match-fixing.

And in May, Uganda’s most successful side SC Villa also suspended five players for the same problem of match-fixing.
