On Tuesday, the Arua-based team released 14 players at once, and Hakim Magombe happened to be one of those releases. He has described the incident as ‘disgraceful.’ Magombe, after goalkeeper Austin Opoka joined the Caterpillars from Busoga United earlier this year. The defender, however, regards the whole season wasted.
‘’When I came to Arua in February, I expected so much better than what I have been subjected to. I haven’t got anything. I only had good intentions for the club, and I played my part, yet all the things the club promised, they didn’t even fulfill half the pledge,’’ the disappointed player said.
Why the club sent him packing
He insists that he played his role quite well for the club only to hear that they are punishing him for indiscipline cases.
He added that salaries don’t come on top of the sign-on fees the club pays to players; but has failed to since February.
Furthermore, he said they can’t accuse him of indiscipline just because he is asking for what rightfully belongs to him. He also said there is a silent but very big challenge of intimidation and segregation at the club.
He said they call players who originate from the central ‘big heads’ because they demand their money.
Magombe feels like he deserves better and hopes that he will get a club that will pay him for his services.
For now, Onduparaka FC has chosen to remain silent on the matter. Efforts to reach the club chairman, Benjamin Nyakuni for a comment were unsuccessful. He did not pick up phone calls.
