Disan Galiwango has finally settled his contractual dispute with his now-former employers Express FC as they confirmed his departure on their social media page.
Galiwango, the Vipers’ new defender, was in hot soup after he was ordered to pay 25m to Express for breach of contract by FUFA’s dispute court. This was because the 22-year-old who joined Vipers from Express FC on a free transfer had been said to have signed a pre-contract worth shs15m with the Red Eagles before changing his mind on the deal after the Venoms offered a hefty pay of 60m as a sign-on fee.
After the announcement by Vipers for the capture of the pacy left-back, Express FC filed a case against the player in the FUFA Dispute Resolution Chamber, claiming that Disan had agreed to a deal in principle to stay with them despite the player claiming to be a free agent.
Following Express FC seeking attention and resolution of the matter, the FUFA Dispute Resolution Chamber made a judgment on September 2 in which it stated that the player would be required to refund the 15 million shillings he had received from Express back in November 2019 and also pay a fine of 10m shillings for breach of contract. The Chamber also stated that the player would not be given any license before completing clearing his debt with the Red Eagles.
However, Express FC has today confirmed that the player had settled his debt with the club as the Mukwano Gwa’banji CEO confirmed the release of Disan in a statement posted on their official Twitter page “Disan Galiwango has been released after fulfilling the FUFA dispute resolution chamber ruling,” the club posted
“We’re happy this has come to an end. In all this football wins and the club wishes Disan (Galiwango) a great career ahead,” Express FC CEO Isaac Mwesigwa said.
Vipers will now be hoping that Disan Galiwango can now focus on getting fit as they prepare for the new season scheduled to start on the 20th of November 2020.
