The Uganda Athletics Federation (UAF) has announced a ban on 65 athletes over failure to clear competition fees arrears. 

Also, the ban that was announced on Saturday was sanctioned on grounds of failure to surface for requisite trials and other related misconducts.

According to UAF Director of Competitions, Faustino Kiwa, the ban was also after the above athletes failed to compete after registration for the ongoing national trials.

Others were suspended over failure to register before the deadline and Mr Kiwa says the ban has an implication of a two-trial consecutive suspension.

Mr.Kiwa noted thus, “Some of the athletes affected registered twice and failed to turn up for the last two trials.The reason we decided to start suspending athletes is that; failure to turn up even after registration messes up with the start-list.”

The suspended include;

UPDF’s Rebecca Cheptegei, Prison’s Philip Kiplimo, Allan Kiprotich of Arise and Shine club, Brenda Aciro (UPA), Victor Kwemoi of Uganda Police.

Also, Tuku Africa club’s Captain Tony Omara, team-mates; Justin Ojok, and Robin Ocen and; Prisons’ Geofrey Nyeko, Zamura Chebet, and Philip Kiplimo have all been suspended.

Police Geofrey Onen, Victor Kwemoi, Elisha Chemutai and UWA Athletics club; Joshua Ajalu, Leonard Kiprop, John Katerega, Shafiq Kirano, Denis Sali, Eliot Siwa, and Silus Boch will not run again until the next two trials are over.

In the same vein, Makerere University Athletics Club’s Chelsea Muhwezi, Glenn Otieno, Keith Katooro, Ronald Murungi, David Akera, Onesmimus Cheptoek have been banned.

Suspensions have also hit Mbarara Municipality club’s David Akera, Rodgers Abitekaniza, Innocent Twinamasiko, and Nancy Tikone.

Note that Gombe, Kiboga, Amuria, Kyambogo University, Tela Field Club have also not been spared by these suspensions.
