Busoga United players plot to strike over unpaid wages

Busoga United players are running out of patience with the club after going six months without anything on their bank accounts.

This website has therefore learnt that the players are plotting to strike against this unbecoming situation.

A trusted source that preferred anonymity, told Football256 that the players have on several occasions tried to reach out to the club president Diana Nyago about the matter, but all in vein.

“They’ve tried all means they could in order to resolve the issue peacefully with the club president but it seems of late she’s much into politics and really has no time for the players,” the source said before adding.

“She’s nowadays scarce and whenever they try calling her on phone, their calls go unanswered and the other officials have kept on lying to the players.”

“Asking them to wait, something they’ve done in much pain whereby some are about to be chased out of their rentals by their landlords due to unpaid rent fees,” the source added.

It is claimed that they had decided to make the Busoga United management aware of their discontent on Wednesday but were later calmed down by the team captain George Kasonko.

However, they promised not to lay down their hands until their voices are heard.

If all means fail, they intimidated to take their complaints a step further by writing to the FUFA Players Status Committee for redress.

In the 2019/2020 curtailed StarTimes Uganda Premier League season, Busoga United finished fourth on the 16-team log hence earning seven million shillings in prize money from the federation.

The players therefore feel disappointed with the club and the club administration because of neglecting them.

The above situation leaves the club’s future hanging in balance ahead of the new campaign which is slated for October 17, 2020.
