Makerere University Business School (MUBS) has been petitioned for the alleged use of four ineligible players throughout the ongoing 2022 edition of the Pepsi University Football League (UFL).
The Association of Uganda University Sports Technical Director George Wagoogo has directed the UFL to look into the credentials of Sharif Ssengendo, Benjamin Nazar, Andrew Otyengi, and skipper Herbert Abima.
“I have received information that Makerere University Business School has been using four ineligible players since the beginning of the 2022 UFL,” partly states a Wednesday signed letter before later making the directive.
“I would like to request you to follow up on the matter with utmost urgency before the next game and come up with the most outright decision as per the rules and regulations.”
“You must find out if these students are students of MUBS and if so, they should provide proof of seating for the most recent semester examinations,” the letter concludes.
It should however be noted that Wagoogo is an official at Kyambogo University and that the same could have played a role in the petition.
This follows MUBS’ elimination of Kyambogo at the quarterfinals through a boardroom decision after the former had petitioned the latter for using an ineligible player.
It was indeed found out that goalkeeper Amir Serugo was used as Andrew Ahebwomugisha, inducing Kyambogo’s loss, despite winning on the pitch through penalty shootouts.
Meanwhile, MUBS trail 2-1 to St Lawrence University after Tuesday’s first leg semi-final, with the second slated for Tuesday, November 01.
