Sports Club Villa has been ordered to pay their former player Emmanuel Kalyowa 11.7m as compensation for unpaid salaries.
Emmanuel joined SC Villa in January 2019 and signed a one year contract that entitled him to a shs1.5m monthly pay. However, reports from the striker claim that the details of the contract were only honored for two months that is the month of January and February 2019.
The 23 year also reports that in some months the club paid him partially usually giving shs.UGX 800,000 per month and some months no notifications about his pay buzzed his phone. He says he did not receive payment for the months of March, April, May, June, and July 2019 and it was from August 2019 to January 2020, the player received the partial payment of UGX 800,000 each month.
With his contract expiring at last season’s UPL 3rd placed club, the player on 3rd August 2020 petitioned seeking payment of his overdue payables.
The former vipers’ striker says it was the deaf ear from his former employers that prompted him to take matters to FUFA’s Dispute Resolution Chamber as his former bosses showed determination in not paying attention to his payment requests notices. FUFA’s Dispute Resolution Chamber has now judged and ordered that SC Villa pays the young striker his shs11.7m in one package within 30 days.
“FUFA Dispute Resolution Chamber Decision – Emmanuel Kalyowa vs SC Villa – SC Villa ordered to pay Kalyowa his overdue payables of UGX 11.7M within thirty (30) days from the date (25.8.2020) of this decision,” a statement read.
