Controversy Erupts after Vipers’ Uganda Cup Defeat: FUFA Receives Petition

After a thrilling Uganda Cup quarterfinal match on Sunday, Vipers have alleged that biased officiating was responsible for their elimination from the tournament.

The current champions of the competition were defeated 5-4 in a penalty shootout following a tense 2-2 draw with Kitara.

Vipers CEO Simon Peter Njuba has written a letter to FUFA, expressing his disappointment at certain decisions made by the matchday referee Ali Sabila Chelengat.

Njuba has criticized Chelengat for awarding a controversial penalty decision to Kitara in the 66th minute.

The incident in question occurred when Kitara’s Jude Ssemugabi appeared to go down under minimal contact.

Vipers also claimed that a clear penalty opportunity was missed in the 87th minute when one of their players was fouled in the Kitara penalty area.

Vipers has submitted video evidence of these incidents to support their claim of biased officiating.

The club awaits FUFA’s ruling while also preparing for a highly anticipated Premier League clash with Kitara this Friday.
