President of Football Association in Bor suspends indefinitely

Abraham Ajok Kuol, the President of Bor Local Football Association who was suspended for corruption allegation.

Local Football Association in Jonglei State has suspended its President this week for allegedly misappropriating more than three thousand dollars. Abraham Ajok Kuol, the President of the Association, denied the allegation.

The Secretary-general of the state football governing body David Kuol Ateny, says the President is suspended until further notices once the investigation is completed.

“We made this suspension according to article 24 Section (E), which gave the board of directors a mandate of suspending any member of the board. Also, in respect to article 69 of the Local Association constitution 2012 amended 2019, we also have a responsibility of opening any legal procedures against any person who has misused the fund of the Association., Ateny said.

Ateny says corruption is unacceptable in the Association’s regulation. He stated that the suspended football president expects to pay back the money once legal procedures are completed.

According to the official, the Association received 3,200 US dollars from well-wishers in July this year. The money meant to improve player ground in Bor.

Kuol says the football management later realized the money was missing from the Association’s account in September.

“We were planning to use this money to level the playing ground as the freedom square now has a lot of water, so we were planning to bring some trips of sand to the place and level so that we run our activities on it,” Kuol added.

The suspended official, Abraham Ajok Kuol, says nothing to prove he had taken the money.

“I have got nothing to prove, but I am following the right procedures, so as I said, I am not saying anything about it,” Ajok said on the phone.

Last year, the former President of the South Sudan Football Federation, Chabur Goc Alei, was banned for ten years by FIFA. He was accused of corruption, misappropriation of funds, and bribery.
