The pressure and expectations to deliver positive results for many Uganda Premier League clubs has obviously garnered momentum.

Whereas some clubs have terminated the services of their coaches over appalling results, several tacticians have bowed to the intense pressure and thrown in the towel.

Just hours after Rwenshama F.C and Entebbe F.C head coaches, Shafiki Bisaso and Matia Lule respectively resigned from club duties, Vialli Bainomugisha, Lweza F.C has absconded from club for 6 days now.Joseph Lwanga, a club official told Kawowo Sports;
The coach has not reported for work for the last week and he has not communicated anything to management
It is reportedly said, Bainomugisha was being targeted by angry Lweza fans over the club’s disappointing performance in the ongoing Uganda Premier League.

The club has since held a crisis meeting with the team director, Ahmed ‘Opa’ Ddamulira having a closed door one – on- one session with Bainomugisha on Tuesday night.

It has emerged Bainomugisha will skip the club’s next away match in Jinja against Sadolin Paints but he will return in the subsequent fixtures. A source who was part of the meeting revealed;
It was resolved in the meeting that the Coach returns after the Sadolin game and fans have been cautioned to give him ample time
Lweza currently lies 11th on the 16 team log having lost 6 games registering 3 victories and 1 draw in the 10 fixtures played so far.

Bainomugisha handled Lweza F.C from the FUFA Big league in the 2013/14 season.

It is just the 11th week of the 2014/15 Uganda Premier League (UPL) and 6 coaches have lost their jobs under different circumstances.

Departed Coaches:

Steven Bogere (SC Villa), Richard Makumbi (Soana F.C) and Fred Kajoba (Simba F.C) had their services terminated for appalling results.

Entebbe F.C’s Mathias Lule and Shafiki Bisaso (Rwenshama F.C) stepped aside bowing to pressure and different reasons.

Lately, KCC’s George ‘Best’ Nsiimbe stepped down for greener pastures with Tanzanian side, Azam F.C.
The sharp sacking sword is speculated to be headed to URA’s Alex Isabirye and Bul F.C’s Kefa Kisala.
