Kyambogo University Rugby Club takes Rugby Union to court

Uganda Rugby Union reversed its decision and kicked out Kyambogo University Rugby Club from the promotional playoffs.

This followed a petition from KOBs feeder side, Boks rugby club asking hard questions as to why they were replaced by the university side.

Away from the petitions and the Shakespeare English, Saturday saw regional champions face off in the semifinals played at Makerere Graveyard grounds under tight security.

The deployment was heavy but when the fixture with many unanswered questions started without any disturbance, the number of officers in uniforms reduced to four.

In the first game, favourites Boks whitewashed Lira Bulls 77-13 in a game that had a couple of highlights from the future stars in; Garvin Mutate, Yusuf Kasenene, Maurice Mark Ssemakula among others.

In a chat with one of the Union officials at the grounds, the move of having guns at the venue was triggered by Kyambogo Rugby Club’s tweet that had the word protesting in capital letters.

“To our fans, we stand ready to
compete in the 2022 championship play-offs and in case of any decision otherwise, we are committed to PROTESTING against that decision in ALL ways we possibly can,” read the tweet.

To cut the long story short, Kyambogo has walked to the courts of law in pursuit of justice as they believe they were not treated in a fair way.

They front the issue of Boks not being independent, the same reason Uganda Rugby Union had earlier based their decision in replacing the KOBs feeder side with Kyambogo.

For now, Walukuba rugby club will lock horns with Boks next Saturday in the playoff finals, the winner of which will qualify for Uganda Rugby Premiership.

Walukuba defeated Mbarara Titans 10-3 in the second semifinals of the day. As usual, Nnalubaale Sports will keep you updated.
