Fufa Suspends Arua Hill Quartet

The FUFA Competitions disciplinary panel has suspended Arua Hill head coach head coach Livingstone Mbabazi, his assistant Yusuf Ssenyonjo, defender Bright Joseph Vuni and Goalkeeper Richard Anyama for misconduct.

The new developments were made official through a letter released by the Competitions panel.

In a league game held on Wednesday 23rd this month, Vuni and Anyama violently confronted and attacked the match officials as Arua Hill lost 2-0 to Gaddafi at Kakindu.

The incident that sparked off the ugly scenes arrived at the hour mark when the referee Siraji Mpyangu allowed Gaddafi to take a quick free-kick before blowing his whistle.

The freekick, which was also taken from a different place from where the foul was committed, freed Godfrey Lwesibawa on the right who then delivered a cross that was turned in by Alex Kitata, a goal that put Gaddafi ahead.

Even head coach Livingstone Mbabazi entered the field as he tried to put his men back to order.

And following a review, the competitions department found the engaged players and Mbabazi guilty and thus being fined and suspended.

Mbabazi, together with his assistant Yusuf Ssenyonjo have been suspended for one competition match effective immediately as of 30th November.

The pair have also been fined 500,000 Ug shs each to be paid to the Fufa account without fail.

For Vuni and goalkeeper Anyama, they have been suspended for two competition matches effective immediately as of 30th November 2022.

It is a big blow for both the players and Mbabazi who have endured a poor month of November.

Before their 2-1 win over Onduparaka recently, Arua Hill had suffered four consecutive losses in a row including their 1-0 defeat against SC Villa at Barifa.

And they are currently in the 8th position with 13 points after nine games.

Vuni and Anyama will miss the Express game on December 2nd as well the game against Bul FC at home in Arua.

For Mbabazi and his assistant, they will sit out on the Express game at Wankulukuku on December 2nd.
