Football (CAF) licenses issued through their current clubs.

FUFA has blocked the mid-season transfer of URA defender Phillip
Obwiny and Express forward Moses Aduni. Obwin and Aduni’s transfer moves have been halted because they hold Confederation of Africa
Football (CAF) licenses issued through their current clubs.

Obwin had intended to switch to Nalubaale while Oduni was headed for SC Villa and had reportedly agreed personal terms. FUFA administrative secretary Aisha Nalule told The New Vision yesterday that the federation CEO Charles Masembe had communicated to her about the nullification of the players’ moves.

“As long as their teams are still in CAF competitions, they can’t move. CAF competitions take precedence. They can only move when their clubs are eliminated from CAF competition. The transfers close this Friday so they may have to wait until the end of the season,” Nalule explained.

The two players are now doubtful for their ‘former’ club’s continental games this weekend. URA FC coach Frank Anyau had planned for Joram
Katende and national U-20 team defender David Kyobe to replace left fullback Obwiny.

But their 2-2 draw in a build-up match against KCC on Tuesday has left Anyau asking the players for more commitment.

“The players were cautious about injuries and wasted scoring chances,” Anyau noted.

Express’ opponents Inter Stars from Burundi, who were travelling to
Kampala by road, had not crossed the border by press time yesterday.

FIFA referees, Tanzanians Oden Mbaga, Hamis Chang’walu and Juma Ally Kombo will handle the URA v ZESCO game.
Chang’walu is one of the referees who arrived late for Cranes Nations Cup qualifier against Lesotho in June last year.
