16 June 2015, 13:21
Kampala - In order to avoid claims of unfairness by two rival football teams, the football governing body in Uganda has hired Kenyan referees to handle the Uganda cup final match between arch rivals, Kampala City Council FC and Villa Club Tuesday afternoon.
The match aborted a week ago when KCC players and supporters stormed the pitch claiming that the referee, Robert Donny was biased.
Kenyan referee, Oliver Odhiambo has been bought in by Federation of Uganda Football association to handle the match.
He will be assisted by two other Kenyans, Andrew Juma Otieno and Tony Mudayi Kidiya.
Officals from the two teams are happy about the decision to bring Kenyans to handle the match.
Aggrey Lusazi from Villa club said, ''It is good that they have brought the Kenyan referees to handle the match. There will be no allegations that we paid the referees to favor us."
KCCA leader of supporters, Benon Mbaya said: ''Our referees are below required standards. They are very corrupt. We welcome the Kenyan referees to handle the match."
