Mbalangu replaces Harunah Mawa who has been head coach at the club, whilst Joseph Kiwanuka the assistant coach takes over from Richard Amatre.

For starters, Mawa had at one time been suspended by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) in March 2020 for use of foul language in the Doves All Stars matches against Bukedea and Kataka.

“Referees. FUFA Big league (small league) Bukeddea fc V Doves All Stars, Kataka FC V Doves All Stars. If the fathers of the two referees had worn a condom, Doves All Stars of Arua could walk away with a maximum of 6 points.” Mawa posted on his personal facebook page then.

Previously known as Doves All Stars, the club rebranded to Arua Hill Sports Club.

Famous Engineer and businessman, Joel Aita owns 100 percent shares in the company under his empire Development Infrastructure.
