Vipers SC fined over his sexist comments against referee

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Ethics Committee Adjudicatory Chamber has slapped a $130 fine on Vipers Sc owner Tadeus Kitandwe for his sexist social media rant over referee decision. 

Kitandwe appeared before the committee on Wednesday and asked to explain his Facebook post that targeted Shamirah Nabadda.

He used derogatory and sexist terms as he protested a decision made by the match officials during their Uganda Premier League match against Wakiso Giants on March 6.

The flamboyant Kitandwe is expected to pay the fine within 14 days from the date of the decision. Failure to pay the fine in the stipulated time shall attract a six-month ban from all FUFA related activities.

The committee explained that Kitandwe received a lighter punishment as was remorseful.

"Kitandwe is a first time offender, appears remorseful and has apologized for the
media comments made. The Chamber also took into account the fact that Mr Kitandwe took down the post from Facebook," the report read.
