Mutebi explains why Sserunkuma, Masiko left KCCA FC

Mike Mutebi says Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Tom Masiko rejected offers by KCCA Football Club to sign new contracts at Lugogo.

Sserunkuma and Masiko are part of high profile departures from the Lugogo based club with last season’s top scorer and MVP joining Zambia’s Buildcon while Masiko moved to Vipers.

“Geoffrey and Masiko rejected our offers,” said Mutebi. “We offered each two year deals with a settlement fee of USD 2800 (about Ugx. 10 million) and an improved salary which they rejected.”

The gaffer went further to accuse the two players of dishonesty depending on how they reacted.

“When I told Masiko about the deal, he never got back to me and all I heard later was that he had signed with Vipers. For Sserunkuma, he hesitated to sign just because he didn’t want the club to get any fee in case a club wanted to him.”

On the rest of departures that include Ivan Ntege who has since moved to Botswana, Sulaimon Akinyemi (Buildcon, Zambia), Vincent Kayizzi, Lawrence Kasadha and Robert Ssentongo, Mutebi confirmed the club had no interest in keeping either at Lugogo for the season ahead.

“The rest weren’t in our plans so we released them at no condition. Ntege, Vincente (Kayizzi), Akinyemi, Ssentongo and Kasadha were all released.”
