The  Masaza Cup organizing committee in Buganda Kingdom has appointed FIFA Referees for the second leg ties of the Quarterfinals.

The development comes after the incidents that happened during Buddu’s 2-1 first leg victory away to Kyadondo last weekend.

Following the defeat, Kyadondo petitioned to the Masaza Cup Organizing committee over poor officiating.

The 2008 competition winners stated that referees Duula Joshua and his assistants Jane Mutoni and Kennedy Kasaado with Komakech Charles as the fourth official poorly handled the game.

In the game, Kyadondo players attacked the referees after cancelling what could have been their equaliser in the defeat to Buddu.

The return leg at Masaka Recreation ground on Sunday, 24th September will be handled by Mashood Ssali with Nassolo Liz and Lulenzi Sharifu as the first and second assistants.

Ssekanjako Ibrahim is the fourth official while Faisal Nsubuga is the referee assessor.

Kasalirwe Lucky will oversee the game between Ssingo and Gomba at Mityana Ssaza Grounds.

Mustafa Mafumu and Samuel Mbabali are the first and second assistants. John Semakula is the fourth official while Farouk Kigongo is the referees’ assessor.

Mark Ssonko is the referees’ assessor.

Buvuma and Mawokota played out to a goalless stalemate in the first leg at Magyo last weekend.

At St.Peters Technical in Mubende where Buwekula will host Bulemeezi, Alex Wasswa will be the center Referee with Charles Zziwa and Jonathan Katabalwa as the first and second assistants.

Nasser Kirya is the fourth official while Davis Katabira is the referees’ assessor.

Both teams played out to a goalless draw in their first leg meeting at Kasana playground in Luweero.

However, the appointment has brought missed reactions with many stating that FIFA Referees should concentrate on league and international matches.
