By Joseph Wanzusi in Mbale FUFA Assistant General Secretary Zubair Galiwango has said the top soccer governing body, FUFA, did not study fully article by article the implications of the amendments made on the rules and regulations governing the 2002 Nile Special Super League. Galiwango made the revelations while reacting to complaints raised in a meeting convened in Mbale on Wednesday to discuss causes of soccer hooliganism involving Mbale Heroes. The meeting observed that some of the rules and regulations governing the National Football League are not fair because they tend to favour certain clubs whenever there is a controversial football dispute. The meeting was convened by Zone Two Chairman Shafiq Menya in Mbale to discuss the causes of soccer hooliganism involving Mbale Heroes Football Club. The meeting, held at Mbale Municipal stadium, pointed out that hooliganism is caused by the poor officiation of referees who are either mentally or physically unfit to handle league matches. Menya, who is also FUFA finance committee vice chairman, gave the example of the abandoned Heroes-Express NSSL game where assistant referee David Katabira failed to raise the flag when James Odoch received a ball in an offside position to score Express’ second goal. Express were awarded maximum points. In his reaction, however, Galiwango said the reaction of club officials and fans to controversial decisions made by referees during soccer matches overshadow their (referees) poor handling of matches when incidents like match abandonment occur.
