With their semi-final second leg barely a week away, Makerere University Business School (MUBS) could lose the game before stepping on the pitch.

The Nakawa based educational institute has a case to answer for allegedly using four ineligible players in the Pepsi University Football League (UFL).

George Wagoogo, the Association of University Sports Technical Director has requested the UFL to check and confirm if Sharif Ssengendo, Benjamin Nazar, Andrew Otyengi and skipper Herbert Abima are MUBS students.

“I have received information that MUBS has been using four ineligible players since the beginning of the 2022 UFL,” partly states the petition from the Kyambogo University Sports Tutor.

“I would like to request you to follow up the matter with utmost urgency before the next game and come up with the most outright decision as per the rules and regulations.”

MUBS had made the last four through a boardroom decision following their petition against Kyambogo University’s use of an ineligible player.


MUBS won the petition after it was confirmed that goalkeeper Amir Serugo was impersonating Andrew Ahebwomugisha, making Kyambogo lose by forfeiture, despite winning the two-legged tie.

Amir Serugo was found guilty of impersonation in the quarter finals.

Meanwhile, MUBS lost 2-1 to St Lawrence in the first leg of the semi-final first leg, with the return leg bound for Tuesday next week.
