FUFA suspends linesman who canceled SC Villa’s goal against BUL FC

February 25, 2023

FUFA has not only stopped at its controversial decision of having the already concluded game between Villa and BUL to be replayed, it has also banned assistant referee Muyanga Khalid.

Muyanga Khalid is the one who made the offside call as BUL beat SC Villa in the round of 32 clash in the Stanbic Uganda cup.

SC Villa thought they had equalized through Charles Bbale after Ronald Otti’s goal for the soap makers.

However Muyanga flagged Bbale for being offside and Villa got eliminated.

FUFA however today ordered for the game to be replayed at a later date that will be communicated.

FUFA in it’s report said that Muyanga failed to justify his decision.

He was therefore suspended from officiating at all different levels of football in the country for 6 months.

And when these six months expire, Muyanga won’t be allowed to officiate in the first division of football and the Uganda cup in the 2023-24 season.

FUFA meanwhile is still getting criticized for the awful and cringe decision it made to have the game replayed.
