FUFA continues to fight Match Fixing


FUFA has been unequivocal about match manipulation and the stance about the ever growing vice is not about to change. It should be noted that FUFA launched an anti-match fixing campaign in March last year.

The message was re-echoed on Tuesday by Charles Twine, a Member and Chief Investigator-FUFA Investigatory Chamber and Denis Lukambi, the FUFA Legal Manager.

Twine indicated that FUFA will not relent on fighting the vice and has the capacity to trace any cases.

“We launched a campaign against a vice which we realized was damaging the game. From that time we have been deliberate and consistent in doing our work. Owing to that background, we received a lot of information from different platforms and we realized there were cases of match fixing,” he stated.

Twine revealed that FUFA with the help of FIFA broke into a syndicate that had its base in South Africa.

“We broke into a syndicate who had penetrated through our game. Some of the names behind this are Mugisha Andrew and Mutyaba Highfier also known as Chelsea who were reaching out to referees, players ans some administrators and had their base in South Africa,”

“Our resolute as the chamber is to make sure that this vice is completely wiped out. Last week, some people were suspended for 90 days as we continue to make investigations.” He added.

Asked if the new Sports Act will be put into effect for the culprits implicated, Twine stated that that will depend on the security and judicial agencies.
