Uganda Premier League side, Kyetume FC has indefinitely suspended three players over allegations of match fixing.

The three players who were suspended indefinitely include goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa and defender Julius Ntambi and team captain Mustafa Mujjuzi. The players have been suspended after the team lost to new comers Kitara FC.

In an interaction with Uganda Radio Network (URN), the club’s CEO Emmanuel Musinguzi confirmed that the three players have been suspended as the club continues investigating the players’ conduct in that game against Kitara.

The administrator added that the Captain who is suspended for ten days has a totally different case because the board trusts him as the leader.

Kyetume lost to Kitara 4-2 on Tuesday at the Masindi Municipal stadium. However the Mukono based team finished the game without goalkeeper Mutakubwa who was given matching orders.

Kyetume FC are in 14th with only 19 points collected in the 21 games so far played. They will next face MYDA FC on May 7th.
