Uganda Premier League side Vipers SC minority shareholder Tadeus Kitandwe is in trouble with FUFA Ethics Committee over his social media rant targeting referee Shamirah Nabadda.

“Referee Shamirah!!!!!!! The b*****s chic pulls out a straight red on Vipers top marksman Fahad Bayo in only 33 minutes! The offense? Deliberate handball in opponent’s half…. The only Red Card

(dismissal) offenses listed under FIFA are 1. Serious foul play. 2. Violent conduct, 3. Denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity (handball).4. Denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity (foul if deliberate). 5. Spitting or biting. 6. Using offensive, insulting or abusive language and or gestures. 7. Receiving a second caution of the match. Kakati ono bwataba betting then what…”

FUFA Ethics committee gave Kitandwe till the end of March 11 to explain his words as they reminded him of the Federation's code of conduct.

The code states that:

“If the nature of the evidence is in form of print, sound bites, or videos, it will be considered acceptance of the charge as guilty and the committee will issue appropriate sanctions and fine as provided for by the code.”
