The federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has cancelled the 2019/20 season of the Stanbic Uganda Cup declaring it null and void with no winner due to the COVID-19 restrictions on sports.

Despite the Cup cancellations, Stanbic Bank will honor its commitment by paying prize monies to clubs that had progressed to the Round of 16 and the quarter finals.

According to FUFA president Eng. Moses Magogo, the federation had hoped to complete the season but due to the continued restrictions on sports, the federation reluctantly decided to declare the 2019-20 season of the Stanbic Uganda Cup null and void with no winner.

Stanbic’s head of marketing and communications Daniel Ogong said it was unfortunate that the season had to be cancelled as it promised to be the most exciting one yet.

Prize money for the cancelled 2019/20 season will be paid as follows:

The six teams that qualified for the quarter finals will each receive six million Uganda shillings and these include Proline, KCCA, Kyetume, Light SS, Kitara fc and Kataka fc.

The six teams that were knocked out at the Round of 16 will each receive three million Uganda shillings, and these include: Kiboga Young, Dove fc, Maroons, UPDF, Tooro United and Free Stars.

And the four teams that were yet to play their round of 16 matches will share the prize money for their ties. Each will receive 1.5 millions. These teams include;

  1. URA FC Vs Wakiso Giants
  2. SC Villa Vs Mbarara City.

Top Police authorities are slated to meet the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga this morning to tackle the security raid on a thanksgiving function organized by the Mbogo clan head, and religious leaders at Mugulu in Mityana town over last weekend.

Mobogo Clan head, Kayiira Gajuule had invited Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa the retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese to grace the thanksgiving ceremony when anti-riot police stormed the area and sprayed teargas to disperse everyone.

This incident has since drawn widespread criticism from both Buganda kingdom loyalists who have since marched to Bulange Mengo demanding an apology from the Police besides the public condemning police actions

Just yesterday afternoon,. Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
