Muhammad Shaban failed to make his much anticipated debut for champions KCCA after failing to secure his licence.
This comes after Onduparaka wrote to the FUFA Appeals Committee claiming that KCCA took on Shaban without their consent yet he was still contracted to them. The committee is yet to make a final ruling on the matter.
Previously the player’s status committee released Shaban from Onduparaka but any club that wanted to sign the player was supposed to deal with Onduparaka before any move was done.
KCCA could have done with Shaban’s firepower as they could only draw with plucky URA in a goalless game. This was KCCA second draw away after a 1-1 stalemate UPDF on match day two.
Derrick Nsibambi and Tito Okello missed several scoring opportunities for KCCA while Henry Kisekka and Labama Bokota were guilty of squandering chances for the Tax Collectors.
