Seven days after the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) suspended Vipers’ officials Harunah Kyobe and Thaddeus Kitandwe, the club has moved to name interim replacements.
Although the premier league champions are yet to make an official announcement, Kawowo Sports has reliably learnt that little known George William Mulindwa has been appointed chairman with club Chief Executive Office Peter Lwanga and Simon Peter Njuba now taking over as Transfer Matching System (TMS) managers.
In the same development, Frank Katalagga has been fronted as assistant CEO at the club.
Furthermore, Njuba and Lwanga are currently undergoing ITMS related training at the Federation.
Speaking to a source close to the club, the move is intended to ensure that amidst this entire fracas, continuity is maintained at the club.
It leaves Kitandwe and Kyobe to battle the allegations amicably while it ensures continuity at the club.
Meanwhile, Kawowo Sports has established that G.W Mulindwa is the Director of Studies at St. Mary’s Kitende SS; a school owned by one of the directors at Vipers and former FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa.
It should be recalled that Kyobe and Kitandwe were suspended by FUFA through its Ethics and Integrity Committee for alleged forgery in the transfer of midfielder Joseph Mpande.
The duo have been the TMS managers for the club.
