Tanzania seek CAF intervention in age cheating claims against Uganda

Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) is in search of justice after they filed a case against neighbours Uganda who they accuse of fielding over-aged players when the two countries met in the second round of the FIFA U17 Women World Cup Qualifiers.

Uganda used their home advantage as they overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit to progress to the next round 6-2 on aggregate after thumping their rivals 5-0 in the second leg at the StarTimes Stadium in Kampala.

On Friday, March 27, the TFF General Secretary, Kidao Wilfred declared that they have a detailed appeal to CAF after crosschecking with FIFA accusing Uganda of using ineligible players.

The suspected players are skipper Juliet Nalukenge, Grace Aluka, Shamira Nalugya, and Fauzia Najjemba.

The players are said to have been with the senior national team the Crested Cranes and the Uganda Women Soccer League in 2015 yet the age limit of CAF in the U17 tournament is 17 years.

Tanzania coach Bakari Shime sensationally made the claims about the over-aged players in the Ugandan squad immediately after her side crumbled in Kampala, and made it clear that he would put the issues in front of his bosses.

“In 2018, we played against Uganda in CECAFA and Nalukenge was on that team. Two years later she is below 17,” a furious Shime told Football256 after the game.

“You want to convince me she was 14 years and playing for a senior national team. Come on, we are Africans and we know what talent development requires.”

“How can an African country rely on a 16-year-old as their leading striker even on the senior team?” he queried.

However, contrary to the accusations by Tanzania, records don’t show any current U17 players featuring on the female national team in 2015.

For example, both Aluka and Nalukenge made their debuts with the national side in 2018 against Kenya in the AFCON qualifiers.

Najjemba first played at the national team just last year against Ethiopia in the Olympics qualifiers whilst Nalugya made her debut at the COSAFA Women Championships in South Africa in September 2018.

But it seems the Tanzanian Football Federation has bought into his allegations as they have retaliated their will to proceed with a petition against their rivals.

“There are so many questions on how the players could feature for the senior team aged 14 which is against CAF directives and in football pathways, it is impossible to have players with the same age,” Kidao said.

“We are very serious about this issue because we have for a long time invested in women football and we are still proceeding with the investment,” he added.

A week ago, Uganda, through the head of communications Ahmed Hussein, denied allegations by Tanzania saying they fielded players within the age category.

“We fielded players falling within the U17 bracket and will wait until CAF notifies us of any petition to respond on the matter,” Hussein is quoted by Daily Monitor.

However, it should be noted that Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) scanning is always used for all underage football tournaments before players are given a go ahead to play.

And if nothing changes, Uganda is to encounter Cameroon, who ran rampant against Sao Tome and Principe 6-0 in their return leg in Yaoundé to progress 10-0 winners on aggregate.

The first leg between Uganda and Cameroon will be played on May 1 in Kampala before the return leg in Yaoundé on May 15.
