Of recent, Mbarara City has twice raided Onduparaka to sign two midfielders, Gadaffi Gadinho and Nicholas Kasozi to boost their attacking force.
However, the Caterpillars have now paid back in threesome by roping back their former head coach Charles Livingston Mbabazi.
The rare announcement was confirmed on Wednesday as the club unveiled -via their media channels-, the coach’s return on a three-year contract deal.
It is largely believed that Mbabazi’s return sparked the departure of Gadaffi Gadinho as the midfielder suffered lack of playtime during his first tenure.
The move is also believed to have kept fast-rising club star, Vianne Sekajugo, at the club despite numerous offers to leave for other suitors.
The coach was sacked on March 14th last year after serving slightly over a year. His sack was sparked by a spate of poor results that climaxed when the Caterpillars lost their long-standing unbeaten home run to Sports Club Villa at the Greenlight stadium.
Mbabazi is expected to work together with Simeone Masaba but it remains to be seen if Leo Adraa will be maintained as technical director.
Wednesday’s unveiling has also sparked a debate of whether former CEO Anthony Afetti has returned in the same position as he was pictured unveiling the coach rather than the acting CEO Pius Bamwange.
