Mengo, Kampala: The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Ethics and Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned Police FC Chairman AIGP Asan Kasingye over misconduct at the pitch.
Kasingye is accused of violating Article 39(2) of the FUFA Ethics Code which provides that; Persons bound by this Code are forbidden from making any public statements of a defamatory nature towards FUFA and /or towards any other person bound by this code in the context of FUFA events.
The ever calm, cool-headed security officer went berserk mid-last month when Police FC keeper Derrick Ochan was controversially sent off-pitch before they lost 3-2 to Vipers at Kitende stadium in the local league.
Kasingye, donned in his police uniform attempted to rip apart the fourth official on the touchline before he was sent off from the pitch. The senior police officer is the chairman of Police FC and serves as the Uganda Police’s political commissar.
FUFA has since made a verdict on Kasingye’s unwarranted behavior and made the following sanctions;
1. A minimum fine of UGX 2.5M ( Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Uganda Shillings Only) under Article 39 (3) and Article 40 (2) of the FUFA Ethics Code. The fine must be paid within thirty (30) days from receipt of the decision.
2. An automatic six months ban from all football-related activities both Nationally and Internationally to be served in the event that Mr. Kasingye commits any other specified unethical conduct against match officials or club officials or in case he fails to furnish proof of payment of the fine. Wait for Afande Kasingye’s response here in our next bullet-in….
