A statement issued by the club yesterday said the decision came after an emergency meeting, which took place on November 11, as issued by the club’s Chairman, Mshindo Msolla.

“Yanga’s Executive Committee has suspended the outfit’s Acting Secretary General, Simon Patrick, who is also the Head of Legal and members,’’ read the statement.

According to the statement the decision came after an emergency meeting of the executive committee held on November 17 this year to hear the allegations against him.

‘’In an effort to ensure that justice is done, the Executive Committee will appoint an independent committee to look into the matter and make effective decisions for all parties,’’ the statement stated.

‘’The Executive Committee will therefore wait for the independent committee to complete its investigation in order to settle the matter.”

Patrick was appointed as the outfit’s Acting Secretary General after the team’s former Secretary General, David Ruhango, had been fired by the club mid June.
