    Kitara 4-2 Kyetume: Relegation Threatened Kitara Not Going Down Alone…

    Nathan Oloro was named MOTM. He scored all the four goals for Kitara

    Uganda Premier League (UPL) debutants Kitara FC have collected four out of six points from Kyetume FC this season.

    The last time they met in December last year, they settled for a one-all draw, followed by today’s 4-w win at home.

    A man of the match performance from Oloro Nathan saw Kitara FC overcome Kyetume FC in a six goal thriller at the Masindi Municipal Stadium.

    Oloro scored all the four goals for Kitara as Nicholas Kasozi and Saaka Sharif both netted once for the visitors in a thrilling 4-2 result. It was Kitara’s second win of the season.

    Oloro scored once in the first half for Kitara to cancel Kasozi’s early lead for Kyetume.

    Kyetume goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa was red carded towards the end of the first half. Stephen Kabuye was sacrificed for another goalkeeper Martin Othieno who would eventually let in more three.

    Oloro stepped again to convert another penalty, doubling Kitara’s lead. Kyetume leveled matters through Saaka in the 64th minute.

    Oloro scored twice between the 79th and 89th minutes to put Kitara back in the driving seat.

    After 21 games, Kitara still lie bottom of the 1y-team UPL log with eight points having managed only a two wins now, two draws, and a dreadful 17 losses.

    Kyetume who have better survival chances are merely a point away from the relegation zone having won four games, drawn seven, and lost nine to accumulate 19 points – earning them 14th spot, a position below struggling Wakiso Giants with 20 points and a game less.

    Midfielder Monday Denis returned for Kitara as team Captain Maxwell Owachigiu, midfielder Kiwewa Ivan and forward Peter Lomoro were all absent.

    Fred Kajoba Deserts Vipers SC After Argument With His Boss…

    Fred Kajoba

    Fred Kajoba has definitely left his role as head coach of Vipers Sports.

    According to local sports website Footbal256, Kajoba decided to end his relationship with Vipers SC after the club’s technical director Charles Masembe asked him to decide between Vipers and the Uganda Cranes.

    “When I went for our afternoon training session at Vipers, Mr. Masembe called me in his office and asked me to choose between Vipers and Uganda,” Kajoba told Football256.

    “Without thinking twice, I told him I choose Uganda, when Vipers hired me I was working with the Uganda Cranes and I will always choose the Cranes any day over any club job.”

    “So I have resigned from the job, I have said my good byes to the players and I am leaving the premises now,” Kajoba added as he left St Mary’s Stadium.

    Apparently, Kajoba at the expense of Vipers’ training had earlier today been part of the Cranes training at the MTN Omondi Stadium Lugogo as the side commenced preparations for their June 10th friendly with South Africa in Johannesburg.

    Trouble ensued there, provided that there is less than 48 hours to Viper’s Stanbic Uganda Cup quarterfinal return leg against SC Villa at the Military barracks in Bombo.

    Kajoba joined Vipers midway the 2019/2020 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season and led them to their fourth title much as the season was cancelled with five games to.

    It is not yet clear whether Kajoba leaves with his trusted right hand man Paul Kiwanuka or the latter will stay to see Vipers through the reminder of the season together with Francis Mugerwa and goalkeeping coach Ibrahim Mugisha.

    Before his resignation, Vipers were third on the Premier League log on 56 points, two points behind log leaders Express and one point behind second placed URA.
