Until today no money has arrived, Mr. Kilenga did not pay the still open 1.900.-Euros. If the money is not on our WKF head office account today 3pm European time WKF must declare the World title of Mr. Tumukunde for vacant.
Here our post from August 15th :
John TUMUKUNDE fight for the World title on August 8th in Kampala and won vs. the Romanian Richard NEMETH.
Protest in progress !
In the last meeting WKF board of directors decide to follow the official report of the supervisor and to declare the World title in Featherweight – 58,20 Kg temporary for vacant.
Promoter Mr. Lukie KILENGA in Kampala showed no professional behaviour and disrespect the foreign guests.
In the first step he did not fix the fight with the opponent from south Africa, so they had no other choice than to disclaim from the fight.
Mr. Istvan ROZMAN WKF World president for the pro division and a great friend of African kick boxing try to help and organise in last second a Romanian opponent for this World title. Again same story, no air tickets arrived on time, no confirmations about the trip just few days before the event. Than tickets come and the fighter must wait and stay in Frankfurt airport, because the connection flight was not paid from the promoter.
Finally the supervisor in England must stay in London airport one more night, because his flight was also not confirmed.
Finally, after the show, there was no return tickets paid, just promises from the promoter, and on the third day he did not show up again and the foreign team had to pay the ticket for the fighter from their pocket, sent from Europe to Kampala by Western Union. Otherwise the fighter would still stay without paid Hotel in Kampala.
Because of all that troubles Mr. Kilenga did not pay 1.900.- Euro to the foreign teams, WKF board of directors vacant the title.
If the full amount is transferred to our WKF bank account until September 15th we confirm the title.
