Guma gets New Year’s gift

Denis Guma: His appeal has yielded results in his favour

The FUFA Appeals committee has released its ruling in an appeal by SC Villa player Denis Guma indicating a reduction in the magnitude of the disciplinary actions earlier taken by the disciplinary committee.

The decision by the disciplinary committee to suspend the player was upheld with modifications. Guma is now suspended for three consecutive Uganda Super League matches with effect from today January 2, 2012. The Federation’s supreme judicial body has also scrapped the Shs.500.000 penalty, leaving Guma with a New Year’s gift and option of investing the money in other positive deals other than his indiscipline.

The Federation CEO, Edgar Watson has already issued a letter communicating the decision by the appeals committee to Guma and other closely concerned parties. One Seguya Sulaiman picked the letter from the federation headquarters in Mengo at 5:18pm on behalf of Guma. “The fine of Shs.500.000 earlier imposed by the disciplinary committee has been set aside. You will therefore not be required to pay any fine” reads part of the CEO’s letter to the player.

Guma absconded from the Cranes camp days before the team travelled to Morocco for the LG cup. He however later wrote an apology addressed to the Disciplinary committee pledging never to commit the same offence again. (Issued by Rogers Mulindwa-Head of communications, FUFA)
