Former Uganda Cranes assistant coach Sam Ssimbwa has said he will serve the eight months ban handed to him on Thursday.
“I don’t have a lot to say. I will serve the suspension,” the KCCA FC coach told URN.
The Adjudicatory Chamber of the FUFA Ethics and Integrity Committee chaired by William Byansi banned Ssimbwa from all football related activities (administrative, sports or any other) for 8 months for possible violation of FUFA Regulations.
It is said early this year Ssimbwa conducted himself in an unethical manner and uttered statements that jeopardised the authenticity of results and integrity of matches.
The committee said the ban comes into force immediately.
The federation’s ethics and integrity committee chairman William Byansi, said he found Ssimbwa guilty of statements that jeopardise the integrity of Ugandan football.
In January, KCCA FC suspended Ssimbwa, accusing him of ‘allegations of personal misconduct’ when he, in a recording presented against him, was heard saying that sometimes he compromises match officials to win football games.
FUFA said: “The committee found out that the standards required from a senior coach like Sam Simbwa is higher than what he portrayed when he uttered statements relating to his ability to bribe match officials in order to get results”.
