The drama in Uganda’s football appears as though it will never end after reliable sources from SC Villa’s executive led by Fred Muwema indicate the club has threatened to block Steven Bengo’s move for professional football in Turkey.

According to impeccable sources, there is an unidentified club in Turkey that is interested in signing the talented midfielder. However, reliable information from the Muwema led SC Villa faction is planning to block the move citing that the player has disrespected the club after he opted to join the break-away Villa faction that plays in the FUFA Super League. Besides, the

executive is faulting the Ugandan international for wasting their resources that has been spent on him ever since he rejoined the record league champions in the January 2012 window.

The club spent Uganda Shs 20 million to facilitate his move from Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club which included Shs 15 million as sign-on fee and 5 million was paid to URA FC. In addition, the club has been paying him Shs. 0.8 million as a monthly salary.
Meanwhile, the Muwema led executive early this month facilitated his move to Iraq for trials with an air tickect but the midfielder sneaked back into the country on Friday and immediately joined the Villa Park faction. He was also in the team that played against Police FC in the FSL on Tuesday in which he scored a brilliant free kick that decided the game.
With rumour that a Turkish club is reportedly interested in his services, the executive is planning to pay back in a similar currency. It should be noted that the Villa executive led by Muwema recently served contract terminating letters to players that crossed the divide and paid allegience to the break away faction. The letter which indicated 14 days ultimatum demanded that these players that include Luyima Sulait, Herman Wasswa, Isaac Kirabira, Isaac Muleme, Moses Ndaula, Ronald Muganga, Charles Ssempa, Robert Achema and Misi Katende return training kits, identity cards, health insurance cards, sign-on fees and whatever has been spent on them while playing for Villa.
When contacted, SC Villa director of football Joseph Kanaba refused to comment on the issue until further notice.
“I can’t comment on the issue at the moment”,he said.
Efforts to reach Steven Bengo to commemt on the issue were futile as his phone numbers were off.
However, we shall keep you posted on the story as it developes.
