By press time, Tooro United players were still stranded at the Betway Mutessa II Stadium Wankulukuku after their barren draw with Bright Stars in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Tuesday.

The players couldn’t find their way back home because they didn’t have transport while they waited for the club chairman Sperito Ssesanga who whereabouts were also unknown.

Football-256 tried to reach the Ssesanga for a comment but his known phone number was off. 

This website also learnt that the players have not been paid their monthly remunerations since the start of the 2019/2020 season.

They players are also threatening not to honour their next league fixture in Fort Portal against BUL over the weekend unless their outstanding arrears are settled.

Tooro United’s season highlight was the 1-0 Victory over defending champions KCCA FC at home, but that was followed by a 2-0 loss to Kyetume again at home.

They seat eighth on the 16 team log with 10 points after eight games, they have won three, drawn one and lost four.
