FUFA fighting to save Cranes defender Hassan Wasswa

Local football body Fufa are towing a very careful line in regard to the fate of Uganda Cranes defender Hassan Wasswa following his arrest for being found in possession of 5.5grams of cannabis last Thursday.

Several Fufa officials confirmed writing to both his club Kayseri Erciyesspor’un and the Turkish football body but Edgar Watson, the chief executive officer, didn’t not return our calls.

"We sat down and designated the CEO to deal with the case which he has done. He will give us feedback tomorrow (today)," Fufa media committee head Rogers Mulindwa said.

This was corroborated by Cranes media manager Fred Katende whereas national coach Bobby Williamson and Asuman Lubowa (Fufa technical head) were unavailable. Assistant coach Jackson Mayanja refused to comment.

"We condemn the act if it’s proven in court that he had the drugs. Conviction would be a very bad signal for young players and also bring an undesired brand image for our players at a time when everyone should turn professional," Mulindwa added.

Reports indicate that he will appear in court today to apply for bail in country with stringent laws. A jail term of 20 years if found guilty and deportation which could mean an end to his career are possibilities.
