Botswana Premier League side Sharps Shootings Stars Football Club made a bitter decision to part ways with Ugandan born winger Lawrence Ndugga.

The Gaborone based club terminated the employment contract of the bow-legged midfielder as both parties parted ways unconditionally.

Prior to the decision, Ndugga was arguably the club’s best performer in the current season with 6 goals to his name and a number of assists.

The two parties had reached an irreconcilable limit following different push factors accruing from salary and allowance arrears for as many as four months.

The player (Ndugga) laid down his working tools with a demonstration on the Gaborone streets following unpalatable conditions which involved struggles to get daily meals and accommodation hitches.

Ndugga who has since returned to his native town of Katale off Entebbe – Kampala highway in Uganda, cried foul of the unfavourable working conditions at Sharps Shooting Stars F.C.

Life was unbearable for me. I struggled to get daily meals and I was pushed out of my apartment where I was staying because of accumulated rent arrears. I demanded up to six months’ salary arrears.
