SC VILLA manager Chris Mubiru has defended the absence of Godfrey Walusimbi and Emmanuel Okwirâ€™s absence from Cranesâ€™ CECAFA squad, saying that they were sick and were released officially.
Chris Mubiru said yesterday that Okwir missed Cranesâ€™ training due to an injury he got in the Kakungulu Cup while Walusimbi was down with ulcers.
â€œThese players reported in camp and where even treated by the team doctor before they were given permission to go for further treatment,â€ said Mubiru.
But FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa had earlier on said that the players had walked out of Cranesâ€™ camp.
