Masaza Cup committee chairman arrested in Kkooki on Kamuswaga’s orders

Sejjengo was in his official capacity as the match commissioner in the game between Kooki and Butambala that was scheduled to be played in Lwanda.

The Masaza Cup committe has released a statement about the dismay of the arrest of Chairperson Hajji Sulaiman Ssejjengo by Police.

Ssejjengo was arrested on orders of Kamuswaga Apollo Ssansa Kabumbuli II prior to kickoff of the match between Kooki and Butambala at Lwanda Playgrounds on Saturday, 23rd July

The committee has raised concerns regarding the manner in which Police and Kooki cultural institution handed the matter

“This non sports act follows another Match that was stopped last Weekend by Kamuswaga stating that no Kingdom of Buganda activity should be held in Kooki.”

“To our understanding, this act contravenes the rules and regulations of the game . Football doesn’t entertain tribal, political and religious differences. It’s our prayer if there are political and administrative issues to be sorted they must not interfere with the game of football.”

“The committee organizes Masaza tournament with the strategic intention of uniting the King’s subjects. A mission we are ready always to adhere to.”

The committee has appealed to the community to stay calm

“It’s the responsibility of the sports fraternity to defend and protect the game. We appeal to all fans and Buganda community in general to stay calm as the final position on the matter shall be communicated in due course.”

This is the third time that authorities in Kooki are blocking Buganda Kingdom’s match. The first one was between Kooki and Kabula before the most recent one between Kooki and Buwekula.
