When Kivumbi left in 2016, she signed with Vaxjo Women Football Club.

In 2013, Kivumbi was part of the Uganda U20 National team when they defeated South Sudan 22-0 on aggregate.

On a sad note, FUFA decided to withdraw the team because of insufficient funds.

Kivumbi is one of the several Ugandan female footballers that have sought greener pastures abroad in recent times.

The others are;  Jean Sseninde, Viola Nambi, Yudaya Nakayenze, Tracy Akiror, Sandra Nabweteme, Sandra Nantumbwe, and Joan Nakirya among others.
