Andrew Mukasa playing for URA

URA FC striker Andrew ‘Fimbo’ Mukasa has tripped to his former mental status and ran away from the team.

The player joined URA FC towards the end of last season after seven years of mental disorder that saw him in and out of hospital has again deteriorated in health.

The New Vision Online on Sunday saw Mukasa walking along towards Entebbe road while he chewed Sugar Cane. He was clad in blue T-shirt, brown pair of trousers and slippers and looked abnormal as he walked.

“He is not okay. He has escaped from us. It is ten 10 days now and we are looking for him. It appears his abnormal again. We appeal to anyone who sees him to report it,” URA coach Alex Isabirye said on Monday.

URA FC took up Mukasa on without a formal contract in August 2011 with a view to help improve his life as they paid him a stipend of sh400000 monthly.

Asked whether URA had ascertained that Mukasa had fully recovered from the illness he suffered, Isabirye said: “I have no doubts because he sensibly advised fellow players and even contributed in discussions towards a game.”

The striker who had played two Super League games for the team so far had spent seven years without active football.
