"These players confessed," said the club's chairman Assan Kasingye. "Other players also admitted that the pair were always trying to convince them to throw away matches for money."

Kasingye added the club had carried out an investigation before taking action.

BBC Sport has been unable to reach the players for a comment.

Kasingye, who is the Assistant Inspector General of Police and Director of INTERPOL and International Relations in Uganda, continued: "This match fixing by some senior players has been discovered as one of the problems we have been facing. It is not only in our club, but also other clubs in the country."
