Katwe United Football Club newly appointed head coach Allan “The Messiah” Ponsiano Kivewala Kabonge will officially kick start his duties with an away trip away to Bukedea Town Council.

Kabonge was named head coach at the club owned by Makindye West legislator Allan “Bwiino” Ssewanyana.

He took over from legendary Hassan “Figo” Mubiru who was sacked by the club management over unconvincing results.

The push factor to Mubiru’s sacking was that embarrassing 4-1 home loss to Arua based club, Doves All Stars at the Star Times Stadium, Lugogo on Monday.

Kabonge, also known as the “promotional king” kick-starts a campaign that will see him guide a sixth club to the Uganda Premier League after earlier successes with Aurum Roses, Onduparaka, Masavu, Paidha Black Angels and lately Kyetume.

FOOTBALL IS TEAMWORK. I HAVE JUST COME TO THE CLUB AND SPOKE TO THE PLAYERS. THEY ARE ALL AWARE OF MISSION AT HAND. WE SHALL WORK TOGETHER FOR THE COMMON GOAL AND OBJECTIVE OF ATTAINING PROMOTION. EVERY GAME COUNTS AND HAS ITS OWN STRATEGIES
