URA FC captain Enock Walusimbi and Wakiso Giants FC defender Bashir Asiku have been summoned by the FUFA Disciplinary Panel to answer respective misconduct cases.
FUFA has ordered Walusimbi, who only joined the Tax Collectors at the start of the season, to respond to unsportsmanlike behaviour during their game against Wakiso Giants a week back, where the latter lost 1-0 in the Uganda Premier League on October 23 at Mehta Stadium, Lugazi.
Walusimbi played violently towards Andrew Kigozi with an open boot, and while the officials missed the incident, it was captured on video, and FUFA intends to take action.
"The FUFA Disciplinary Panel (FDP) has summoned URA FC player Enoch Walusimbi to submit a written statement to clarify, contend, or dispute his actions as stated in the match report and videos of the match between Wakiso Giants FC and URA FC."

Busoga United player Charles Sunday Mulanda could have dug himself a bottomless pit after cynically headbutting referee Gerald Tumusiime in their game against Gadaffi FC on Tuesday.
"Walusimbi has to submit his statement by Thursday 26th October 2023 before 5 pm local time," the FUFA statement adds.
Meanwhile, Asiku could as well be in hot soup following violent conduct after the game with URA.
The former Vipers SC defender broke the glasses of the window in the referees' dressing room as he expressed dissatisfaction with the day's officiation.

With the gloom at the club, Magera insists they can only turn around the fortunes with victory on Thursday.
"The FUFA Disciplinary Panel (FDP) has summoned Wakiso Giants FC player Bashir Asiku to submit a written statement to clarify, contend, or dispute his actions as stated in the referee’s report of the match between Wakiso Giants FC and URA FC."
"Asiku attacked the match officials at the end of the game while in the dressing room, hit the window and shattered the glass. In the process, match officials were injured due to the actions of the mentioned player," the statement adds.

Meanwhile, Shaban's absence only adds to the troubles at the club, which sacked their head coach, Sergio Traguil, along with his deputy Luis Manuel Correira Guerreiro.
Asiku risks a lengthy spell on the sidelines and a fine should he be found guilty of the charges by the FUFA Disciplinary Panel.
