Kyetume Sack Mbabazi, Successor Revealed

Uganda Premier League outfits Kyetume FC have parted ways with head coach Livingston Mbabazi.

Mbabazi, who is an assistant coach for Jonathan Mckinstry, leaves after about eight months at the Mukono based club.

He was appointed in June last year, his first club since leaving Wakiso Giants in February 2020.

He leaves the club after a spell of poor results highlighted by a five-game winless streak which has left the club in 11th with as many points after 10 games.

The Slaughters have appointed Alex Isabirye Musongola who returns at the club another stint.

He joins with vast experience having coached URA, BUL, Nyamityobora, Tooro and Busoga United among others.

Mbabazi Sacking Scapegoat For Club Woes

Kyetume had a decent start when they went five games without a loss, including back-to-back wins against UPDF and BUL.

Since then, they are yet to win in the last five. Looks like a second season syndrome.

Mbabazi had built a formidable side good enough to challenge middle table spots when he added in young and industrious players and parting ways with some of the untouchables at the club.

However, a lot didn’t go right. Players have been demanding over six months without pay, and being denied to play at home in Nakisunga has made the situation worse.

Many players have left the club under mysterious circumstances, with Nicholas Kasozi and Benon Tahomera the latest victims.

Reports close to the club have suggested that Mbabazi and club Technical Director Jackson Mayanja didn’t see eye to eye, and like they say; it ended in tears.
