FUFA Opens Disciplinary Proceedings Against Jackson Mayanja

The FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel (FCDP) has opened disciplinary proceedings against KCCA FC coach Jackson Mayanja.

This follows remarks made by the gaffer following the team’s loss against Vipers on Friday at Kitende.

The KCCA FC head coach lost his temper in a game Milton Karisa scored late to decide a highly contest affair.

While addressing the pressmen after the final whistle, Mayanja, who was furious expressed his discontent towards centre referee Mashood Ssali.

“First of all thank you the media for coming in big numbers and you witnessed a fantastic game. But what I can say to you is that the best team lost,” Mayanja started.

“I want to put it in Camera without fear of any body, Mr. Mashood (Ssali) is the problem.”

It was a frustrating day for Mayanja, who showed his discontent with the centre Ssali from the word go.

Throughout the entire game, Mayanja was seen protesting against Mashood’s decisions, not until he was given a yellow card to calm him after an exchange with fourth official Shamirah Nabadda.

And even after the final whistle, Mayanja, together with a couple of KCCA FC players, including Kankonde who punched the referee, were seen confronting him after the game.

But when asked about where the referee went wrong in the game, Mayanja failed to break down the incidents to the media:

“I’m only waiting for anything to be done, that’s when you will see how Professional team coaches act.”

Mayanja’s exchange with the media got out of hand, before they asked him to leave the press conference room.

FUFA’s statement reads in part:

“The proceedings were opened drawing attention to Article 31 of the FUFA Competition rules and regulations with reference to the comments which appear to constitute improper conduct.”

“Mayanja is required to submit a written response and send it to FUFA on email by Monday 8th May 2023 2:00 pm or hand deliver it to FUFA House.”

The loss, fifth for KCCA this season was a big blow in what was a title decider at Kitende.

They dropped to the third position with 45 points after 24 games.

And Mayanja, together with a couple of his players, who confronted the referee might face some charges from the federation in the coming days following ugly scenes at the end of the game.
