Published

on

HAVING drawn his fifth game in nine games, coach Douglas Bamweyana may be sacked at SC Villa who are fighting relegation in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

Bamweyana took the SC Villa job in November last year. He has only managed to win two games, lost two and drawn five.

Angry Villa fans threw tables at Namboole and called for his sacking. “Banweyana may lead us into problems like he did at Express so management must be careful we are tired of his dull tactics,” one angry fan said.

Bashir Mutanda scored for SC Villa and Alfred Onek got an equalizer for Bright Stars who put up a wonderful display as the game ended 1-1. Villa are 12 and three points off the relegation zone which is worrying Jogo fans. Villa have not won a game in the last five games of the league. They take on Vipers, tomorrow a game that is anticipated by many as a cracker on and off the pitch.

Paidha 0 – 0 SC Villa

Villa 0 – 1 BUL              

Police 2 – 2 SC Villa             

Nkambi Coffee 2 – 0 SC Villa

URA 1 – 0 SC Villa

Published

on

Cranes star Godfrey Walusimbi alias “Jajja Walu” has been told to pack his bags and leave South African giants Kaizer Chiefs.

Kaizer Chiefs officially announced on the their twitter page that they have parted ways with the left back who joined the team from Gor Mahia of Kenya.
“Walusimbi opted to go back home to Uganda. We would like to thank him for his contribution to Kaizer Chiefs and wish him all the best,” Kaizer Chiefs stated on their twitter handle.


Walusimbi arrived at the start of the current season but his stint at the Amakhosi has been very short. He made 17 apperances for the club.
Walusimbi is among the most talented left backs you can ever admirer but his professional career is questionable especially when it comes to discipline.
