KAMPALA – Wakiso Giants FC have parted ways with head coach Livingstone Mbabazi.
The development comes barely three months after Mbabazi took over the role.
The former Onduparaka FC and Mbarara City FC tactician replaced Kefa Kisala towards the end of November but has consistently seen the team struggle in terms of accumulating results.
Since he arrived, Wakiso has won just two of the seven games he has been in charge of.
They defeated Onduparaka FC 1-0 at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium before taking care of Bugoigo Leopards in the Uganda Cup round of 64.
His departure was confirmed by a source in the club that preferred anonymity.
“Yes Mbabazi has left Wakiso Giants FC and is no longer our head coach, the source confirmed to PML Daily.
The circumstances under which Mbabazi has left are still not clear but it is believed he deemed working conditions at the club as ‘unfavourable’.
Mbabazi has consistently complained about the attitude of personnel at Wakiso Giants including both the players and those in management, claiming that several of them were making it difficult for him to execute his duties.
It is the second club he leaves this season having done likewise at Onduparaka FC back in October.
At the time of his departure, Wakiso is preparing to take on MYDA in the Uganda Cup round of 32 at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium on Tuesday.
Steven Bengo is expected to take interim charge of the team like he did after Kisala’s departure.
Wakiso are currently 9th on the Uganda Premier League table with 25 points from 21 games.
Their next league fixture will be at home to Maroons FC on February 18.
