Wakiso Giants has given Steven Bengo yet a second chance at the club after he apologized for his behaviour that had led to the club suspending him indefinitely.
The veteran midfielder was suspended from the club after disappearing from the club without official leave and without seeking permission for a period of approximately two months which annoyed the newly formed club officials.
The letter for the 30-year-old midfielder’s suspension was also copied to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA), FUFA Player status committee and the FUFA Competitions committee as well as to the Wakiso Giants players.
The Wakiso based club however offered him room to appeal on the matter and after apologising in writing to the management, technical staff and fellow players, he has been pardoned.
“He apologised and has been pardoned,” confirmed club CEO, Sula Kamoga while speaking to www.wakisogiantsfc.com.
Following this, the former SC Villa, KCCA, URA and Express talented attacker could feature for the club’s game against Kireka United in the Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32 on Tuesday.
Bengo was signed alongside an array of other experienced players, many of whom had played in the top flight league before.
Some of those are Ayub Kisalita, Moses Ali Feni, Karim Ndugwa, Isaac Ntege, Hassan Wasswa Dazo, goalkeepers Cleo Ssetubba and Mansoor Mutumba in a bid to be promoted to the top Uganda tie.
