Fufa dismisses Wahab ineligibility case filed by Bright Stars and BUL FC

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) has dismissed a case filed by Bright Stars and BUL FC over the eligibility of Wakiso Giants player Gadaffi Wahab.

The two Ugandan Premier League (UPL) sides had petitioned Fufa to investigate and fine Wakiso Giants alleging Wahab had been suspended and therefore ineligible to play against both BUL FC and Bright Stars.

After investigation, Fufa's Competitions Disciplinary Panel found out the midfielder had indeed served his suspension and was eligible to feature against both teams thereby dismissing the petitions.
