“Mr. Luzzi was found guilty for approaching a player to influence and manipulate the result of the Uganda Cup match between Five Stars FC and Tooro United FC,”FUFA said in a statement.

In a game played in January at the Works Playground in Entebbe, Tooro United eliminated fourth division team, Five Stars FC 8-7 on penalties after the game had ended in a barren draw in normal time of the round of 64 in the Uganda Cup.

According to FUFA Luzzi was involved in fixing this game.

In the same vein, the local football governing body also banned  one James Kaweesa for 15 years without getting near any football related activities both local and international for being involved in fixing the Uganda Cup round of 64 match between Five Stars FC and Tooro United.

He is accused, just like Luzzi of approaching a player to influence the said game.

In a shocking decision, sports journalist, David Isabirye was also banned from taking part in any football related activities for two years over the same scandal.

According to FUFA, Isabirye is accused of failure to report the incident of match fixing in the same game that he covered in his capacity as a journalist.

“Isabirye also failed to provide valid and acceptable evidence to show that he had fulfilled his duty to report the illegal conduct,” FUFA said.

However, it is expected that the officials and the journalist will appeal the decision of the local football governing body.
