Vipers Sports Club, the reigning Uganda Premier League champion, has summoned coach Alex Isabirye to a disciplinary hearing after he allegedly absconded from his duties without permission. The club claims that Isabirye has been absent without leave for six days, and they have expressed their dissatisfaction with his unauthorized absence.

In a letter dated Tuesday, July 11th, obtained by Pulse Sports, Vipers Sports Club stated that Isabirye had consistently failed to report for work as the Head Coach since July 5th, 2023. The club has invoked applicable labor laws and has scheduled a disciplinary hearing for Isabirye on Thursday, July 14th, at 10:00 AM in the St. Mary’s Stadium – Kitende Executive Lounge.

Vipers Sports Club’s media officer, Kenneth Muwanga, neither confirmed nor denied the existence of the letter but mentioned that Isabirye had been attending training sessions before allegedly being involved in an accident on Sunday morning. Muwanga stated that he was not aware of the specific letter addressed to Isabirye and suggested contacting the source for further verification.

Efforts to reach Isabirye for comment were unsuccessful as he did not answer calls to confirm whether he had received the letter or not.

The alleged absence and subsequent disciplinary action against Coach Alex Isabirye have raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his decision to step aside and the club’s response to his absence. Fans and pundits eagerly await the outcome of the disciplinary hearing, which will determine the future of the coaching position at Vipers Sports Club.
