URA FC' s Hood Mulikyi and Steven Mukwala celebrating a goal

The FUFA Referees Disciplinary Panel has has suspended Kaddu Ali for two weeks from officiating Uganda Premier League (UPL) matches effective December 1.

Kaddu is, however, allowed to officiate matches in other Uganda football leagues.

The referee is accused of inexplicably ruling out URA striker Steven Mukwala’s goal against Tooro when it looked a clean and legitimate one.

In his defence, Ali argued he ruled out the goal because Mukwala intimidated a Tooro United FC defender, who then left the ball for the striker to score.

The panel rejected the explanation from the referee and established that there was no protest from the opposing players of Tooro United.

The panel found that the referee was poorly positioned and did not use the services of the assistant referee.
