FUFA admits poor officiation in the league, Osire banned

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) have admitted that there was a vital mistake in the Startimes Uganda Premier League as Vipers claimed a 2-1 win against Kitara FC at St. Marys Stadium.

Assistant Referee Juma Osire was on the receiving end as he debien the visitors of Kitara FC a late equalizer which he ruled to be offside but with evidence from the video clips, no Kitara FC player was offside as Patrick Mbowa was the last defender before the ball was headed in.

The Referees Disciplinary Panel has handed a six month ban after committing a mistake which could lead to hooliganism in football.

“The Referees Disciplinary Panel (RDP) has suspended Mr. Juma Osire for six months.” Read a statement from FUFA.

Osire was the first assistant referee in Match No.76 of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League between Vipers SC Vs Kitara FC at St. Mary’s Stadium.

In the 1st minute of additional time 

after the 90 minutes, Kitara FC scored a goal which was disallowed by the first assistant referee for an offside. However, it appeared from the video footage of the incident that none of the players from Kitara FC were in an offside position.

Osire is therefore suspended from officiating football at all levels for six months that comes into force immediately.

Following his repeated pattern of behavior, Mr. Osire Juma is forwarded to the Investigatory Chamber of the FUFA  Ethics and Disciplinary Committee for further investigation.
