FUFA banned Ssimbwa from all football-related activities for eight months

KCCA FC has sacked assistant manager Sam Ssimbwa, the club confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.

"Following an investigation into the personal conduct of Mr. Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa, the FUFA Ethics Committee, on the 14th of April 2016, resolved to suspend him from all football related activities for a period of eight (8) months on account of professional and ethical misconduct in accordance with Article 9 (1) of the FUFA Code of Ethics.

The Executive Committee of the KCCA FC has, therefore, determined that Mr. Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa's contract for the provision of managerial services to the club was frustrated, as a result of the said suspension, and thereby deemed "unenforceable".

Accordingly, Mr. Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa has been relieved of all duties, privileges and obligations, as the Assistant Manager to KCCA Football Club, with immediate effect.

Ssimbwa who re-joined the club as coach, at the start of the 2015/16 campaign was implicated after an audio circulated in the media with his voice stating that he can bribe referees to win his club matches if he wanted to.

The statement that did not go down well with the club management which provisionally suspended him.

KCCA went ahead to forward the matter to the The Adjudicatory Chamber of the FUFA Ethics and Integrity Committee for investigation.

The Committee however found out that the standards required from a senior coach like Sam Simbwa is higher than what he represented when he uttered the unfortunate statements and banned him for 8 months.

He has been given 10 days to apply for the full reasoned judgment passed by the Committee.
