ARUA – Just over a year after he left, Livingstone Mbabazi has returned to Onduparaka FC.
The tactician left Onduparaka in May 2018 before joining another StarTimes Uganda Premier league side, Mbarara City.
The Arua based club asked Mbabazi to step down but the circumstances that led to the situation remained a mystery.
It was however reported that the tactician had lost power over the dressing room, clashing with senior players consistently.
After his departure from the Caterpillars, Mbabazi went on to impress at Mbarara City FC.
Last season, the former Uganda Cranes midfielder led Mbarara to a 5th placed finished, the highest the Ankole Lions have achieved in a while.
Inspite of the fact that Mbabazi had led Mbarara to the 5th place finish, he tendered in his resignation towards the end of last month.
In his resignation latter, Mbabazi claimed that the club was poorly ran and that he could not continue work in such an environment.
Mbabazi’s return to Onduparaka was confirmed by the club on their social media out-lets.
“We are delighted to announce the return of tactician Charles Livingstone Mbabazi who has rejoined us on a 3 Year deal!!, read the statement.
Mbabazi’s return comes just over a week after Onduparaka parted ways with influential play-maker Gadaffi Gadinho.
Gadaffi departed the Caterpillars and signed a two year deal at Mbabazi’s immediate former employers Mbarara City.
Onduparaka finished 6th with 45 points last season, their best points tally in the top flight since gaining promotion in 2016.
As the club attempts to better last season, they are however facing a player exodus as many seek for greener pastures.
It is understood that both Vianny Ssekajugo and captain Rashid Toha are on the verge of leaving.
