A referee officiating in a match sponsored by an aspiring LC1 chairman in Bugodo village, Kamuli district on November 3 caused chaos. Some fans were happy with him because he sided with them while others bayed for his blood for being unfair. He favoured the visiting team and the story ended with him running for dear life. It all started with a select team from Bugodo village, inviting another from Bulyowa village to crown the campaign trail. The match kicked off at a high pace with the referee cancelling an early goal by the home side. This marked the beginning of the drama. Unruly players attempted to beat the referee but were restrained by their captain. Ironically, the referee handed a red card to the captain who lost his cool and retaliated by pulling the card and whistle from him. He only handed them back after he was told to stay on the pitch. The match resumed with both sides struggling for the he-goat prize, with no side scoring until the ninetieth minute when the home side won a clear penalty. The referee who had hidden his ill-feelings due to the earlier humiliation took revenge on the home team. he picked the ball, pretended to be taking it to the spot where the penalty was to be taken but instead blew the whistle indicating the match had ended. He took good care to run as fast as possible into the nearby bushes with the ball. Since it was already dark, it was hard to get him. The match ended prematurely and both teams walked away empty-handed. ends
