Vipers unveil Livingstone Mbabazi as Neiva’s replacement


The reigning Uganda Premier League champions, Vipers SC, have appointed Charles Livingstone Mbabazi as their new head coach.

Mbabazi, who recently resigned from Arua Hill, joins the Venoms on a two-year contract.

The 43-year-old coach steps into his role immediately and is poised to lead the team into Wednesday’s match against NEC FC at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

Mbabazi’s arrival follows the departure of Leonard Martins Neiva, who parted ways with the club two weeks ago by mutual agreement.

This transition coincides with a crucial phase for the club, aiming to reverse their fortunes after suffering two consecutive league defeats against BUL and Express, both at Kitende and Wankulukuku, respectively.

These setbacks have seen Vipers drop to fourth place in the table, accumulating 24 points in 13 games, prompting a strategic shift in coaching dynamics.

Mbabazi brings a wealth of experience, having served in various capacities at Wakiso Giants FC, Onduparaka FC, Mbarara City FC, and even the Somalia National team. Additionally, he has contributed to defunct clubs like Lweza and Masavu.

With Mbabazi taking charge, Vipers Sports Club anticipates revitalizing their performance and re-establishing themselves as a dominant force in the league.
