Fred Kajoba – Coronavirus outbreak is a blessing in disguise for Vipers. Vipers SC head coach Fred Kajoba claims that the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic is a blessing in disguise for his side.
The outbreak forced FUFA to suspend all football-related activities in the country as a way of fighting it.
However, according to Fred Kajoba, the break will give his injured players enough time to recover when the league resumes.
“There is hope Muhammad Shaban, Rashid Toha, Livingstone Mulondo, and Halid Lwaliwa will all be fit when we get back,” Fred Kajoba was quoted saying.

According to former Bright Stars gaffer, The Venoms will proudly lift the StarTimes Uganda Premier League title if the league ends today.
The Kitende based club are currently topping the 16-team table with 54 points, four ahead of second-placed KCCA FC.
“I’m in constant touch with the players and remind them to behave like professionals during this break so we resume strongly,” Fred Kajoba noted.
They are remaining with five games against Busoga United, Tooro United, Bright Stars, Express FC, and Police FC.
However, according to the law, Vipers will be granted the league title in case the pandemic continues indefinitely.
Article 18 of the Fufa Competition Rules and Regulations on ‘Failure to Complete the League’ states that where the league format, due to circumstances of force majeure, fails to be completed within the season, the winner will be determined if at least one club has played 75 percent of the league games.
“I was a part of that Coffee FC side that lost out to then KCC when the league was suspended with three matches to go due to unfavorable conditions in 1991.”
“It would be interesting and rewarding to me if we are, possibly in May,” he added,” Fred Kajoba further noted.
Vipers are targeting their fourth Uganda Premier League title this season.
