Maroons FC player Sula Mpanga nearly lost his dear life due to lack of an Ambulance at Njeru Technical centre.

Mpanga suffered a concussion in the Uganda Premier league game Busoga hosted Maroons on Thursday at Njeru.

Hosts Busoga failed to avail an ambulance at the Stadium during the incident.

Maroons CEO Rodrick Muhumuza was forced to use his car to transport Mpanga to Rippon Hospital in Jinja for further treatment.

“Before the game, in the pre-match meeting with the Match Cordinator an Ambulance was present physically at the Technical center, and the day’s match coordinator inspected and ascertained its availability.” Said Muhumuza

He added,

“Everyone was baffled when the player got into a life threatening situation and 5 minutes later no ambulance was coming.”

“We later found out the ambulance left immediately the match kicked off as they assumed all would be normal.”

“It’s a lesson learnt, players lives should be considered as utmost instead of the games some of the host clubs play.”

“The ambulance only returned close to end of the match when the player had already been transferred by private vehicle to hospital.” Said Muhumuza


Maroons have confirmed that the player has been transported back to Kampala for further assistance.

The Luzira Prison based side also managed to beat Busoga United 1-0 courtesy of a late Darius Ojok goal.
