Kyambogo lose semifinal spot over mercenary deployment

Kyambogo University will not play in the 2022 University Football League semi-finals despite winning on the pitch against Makerere University Business School, due to impersonation.

Kyambogo had dumped out MUBS in the quarterfinals via penalty shootouts, having stayed leveled at 3-3 after 180 minutes.

But, due to their gross misconduct, allowing goalkeeper Amir Serugo to masquerade as Andrew Ahebwomugisha, they will not be facing St Lawrence University in the final four of the competition.

“Kyambogo was found to have used an impersonator during the MUBS Vs Kyambogo quarterfinal second leg of 11th October 2022,” partly reads a Tuesday statement from the UFL Disciplinary Panel.

“Person who played as Andrew Ahebwomugisha was actually Amir Serugo. Kyambogo loses the match to MUBS by forfeiture (3-0),” the statement stabs before adding; “Kyambogo Sports Tutor fined ugx.300,000.”

However, they have a chance to appeal the Panel’s decision within 48 hours after the latter charges.

Should the appeal be thrown out, MUBS will take on favourites SLAU in what will by every bit be mouthwatering action for the fans.
