Katwe United chairman Allan Ssewanyana has called out Allan Kabonge to return to duty after the coach had gone AWOL.
After Katwe United’s goalless draw with MYDA FC in a big league game at Lugogo, Kabonge told the press that he had resigned, and has not returned at the club since then.
In a long video message, MP Ssewanyana said that Kabonge has not handed in a resignation letter which implies that he is still the club coach.
Ssewanyana anticipates that his coach might have gone to a burial or attending the sick, and he is still hopeful that he will return.
“We request you Mr Kabonge to come back and do you job, You have to fulfill our mission and yours as well because you promised something when you signed the contract,” said Ssewanyana.
“We have began a new week and I expect you to be back as we have a game against Kiboga Young soon.
“Many fans and stakeholders of this club have advised me to use police (arrest) on you but we are not using such means, we might be here yet you are somewhere sick or having a pressing problem.”
Kabonge is assisted by Isma Kintu and Francis Gonzaga at the embattled big league side that is at the foot of Elgon group with eight points after 11 games.
Kabonge’s only one win at Katwe United was a 4-1 win over Kataka FC.
“There is still hope, actually, we can still win the league (mathematically) if you look at the table,” a Confident Ssewanyana said.
“I am sure that our technical team will lift this team to victory, we are still a big team and I don’t anyone to lose hope. We will weather the storm.”
He advised the fans and players to remain focused and not to be taken away by the wider view that FUFA is against their team because of his interest to become FUFA president.
Next for ‘Tuli Banyivu’ side are back-to-back trips to face Kiboga Young FC (Mbale Heroes) and Dove All Stars (Arua).
