Onduparaka Football Club Head coach Charles Livingstone Mbabazi has on thursday evening left his role by mutual Consent.
The Uganda Cranes assistant coach whose contract was due to expire in 2021 joined the West Nile side earlier this year from Mbarara City FC and has managed all his former side’s first round matches picking up 23 points from 15 games.
The Touchline Sports can confirm that Livingstone Mbabazi owed Onduparaka FC six months of unpaid wages exceeding 50 Million Uganda Shillings which tantamounts to the breach of contract by the Club hence prompting the journeyman to step down.
Earlier this month, the former Mbarara City FC tactician had been reported to be in talks with Hon. Mwine Mpaka (Mbarara City chairman) for possible a return to the club.
A move to Mbarara City would see Mbabazi coach the Kakyeeka based side for a second time.
On the other end, Waksio Giants who have since fired Kefa Kisala and installed former player Steven Bengo as coach on interim are also reported to be in talks with the ex-international.
The circumstances that define departure Mbabazi’s departure confirm the worrying financial state in which the club is.
It is reported that players have gone unpaid for the past 6 months at the club, which could prompt other developments. Players like Fred Agandalu and Abel Eturude among others have since departed the Club due to unpaid monies ranging from sign on fees to wages.
