Uganda Coach seeks CAF intervention on his payment compensation

By Fred Maingi
Former Tanzania’s Simba Sports Club head coach Moses Basena is seeking compensation amounting to US $112.3 million from the club.
  Subsequently, the Uganda born tactician is seeking intervention from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on the matter.
  Basena’s two year contract with the club ended mysteriously after being in the helm for seven months .Simba officials cracked the whip after the Mainland champions lost with a solitary goal to their arch rivals Yanga.
    Basena, currently with Uganda Express FC said losing the job was not a matter of life and death but insisted he wanted the club to compensate him. ‘I don’t have any problem with the club terminating my contract since I cant stay for ever,It’s  their democratic right to fire  any coach but they must follow the rules.They must compensate me otherwise, I will take legal action  which could be drastic” said Basena.
  He disclosed that he had lodged an appeal to CAF through FUFA (Uganda football governing body).
  FUFA spokesman Rogers Mulindwa confirmed later that they have notified CAF over the matter when contacted for comment.Mulindwa said they will give the coach all the necessary support in his claims for compensation.

 Simba SC chairman Ismail Aden Rage however defended his club saying the Ugandan tactician did not have professional qualifications to handle a top club like Simba. He regretted the move to part ways with the Ugandan adding that his club was free to create a position for him in
