SC Villa fans vow to return club regalia in protest

SC Villa fans vow to return club regalia in protest

Expelled SC Villa lead fan Sam Nsubuga aka Miracle has insisted that he will not quit Villa Park because he is not a hooligan.

’Miracle’ who is synonymous with Villa was last week indefinitely banned from all club activities together with a colleague Meddie Ssembajja, commonly known as ’Kattannyonta’.

Club president Fred Muwema described the two as "errant fans who continue to perpetuate crowd violence at Villa Park, league/cup games."

On a number of occasions, especially when Villa is not performing well, the fans have gone out of their way an act that has so often gotten the club on the wrong side of the law.

The latest came when the Jogoos fans forced the abandonment of the Uganda Cup semifinal clash with URA at Lugazi. FUFA consequently threw Villa out of the competition and fined them sh5m.

Nsubuga and Ssembajja were later on locked up but later released on Police bond.

In an emotional interview with Vision Sport Nsubuga said none of the Villa officials has the mandate to expel him from the club. He challenged any of them to put the directive in writing.

"I have been a Villa fan on my own accord for 27 years and I have never been a hooligan. I have seen those officials come and go. No one pays me a salary but I continue to support the club," he explained.

He revealed that a group of fans will gather at Villa Park on Sunday and return or even burn the club regalia ( including jerseys and membership cards) in protest of the manner in which Muwema administers the club.

Muwema’s statement circulated yesterday, and copied to among others, the Inspector general of Police, Minister of Education and Sports and FUFA CEO, banned Nsubuga and Ssembajja from attending Villa matches or taking part in any club activity.
