Three members including the Vice President (Administration) of the Uganda Boxing Federation (UBF), Fred Kavuma have been banned for 12 years.

The UBF Extra ordinary general Assembly that sat on Thursday at Lugogo banned Kavuma because he has caused problems in the sport. “ He will not be allowed to participate in any matters related to Boxing,” Moses Muhangi, the Federation President told URN.

Muhangi explained that his vice President will serve a 12- year ban from any boxing activity or leadership position.

At the same Assembly former UBF Chairman and trustees Kenneth Gimugu and Paul Ayasi were also banned for 12 years for their unbecoming behaviors towards the sport.

“Any member who has in the past took it up on themselves to take the sport of boxing to the courts of law other than the gazetted sports arbitration court has also been banned from any activity or event or associating with any club for a period of 12 years,”  added Muhangi.

Kavuma and the former UBF President Gimugu have been among the Federation trustees who dragged the body to court.

Last year the National Council of Sports (NCS) also suspended the Boxing body over the disappearance of three players who had traveled to Germany for the 2017 AIBA World boxing championship in hamburg.

Interestingly Kavuma who has been banned was the official who led the boxing team to Germany. The three Ugandan boxers who disappeared include: David Ayiti, Geoffrey Kakeeto and African welterweight champion Muzamiru Kakande.
