Katwe United FC have Tuesday, October 29, 2019 parted ways with Head Coach, Hassan Mubiru on mutual consent terms.
In a parting noted, Management wrote thus on social media today “The Club is highly appreciative of his immense contribution towards positioning Katwe United FC as one of the country’s leading football clubs. We wish him success in his next endeavours.”
However, the fate follows the Club’s loss 4-0 against Doves All Stars at home ground.
Mubiru joined Katwe United then in the Kampala regional league and signed a three year contract with the Club.
He worked diligently with the club and guided them to promotion to the second tier (FUFA Big League).
In the FUFA Big League, Mubiru has been in charge of three games; a 1-0 home win over Light S.S, an away draw with newcomers Saviors and that embarrassing 4-1 home loss to West Nile side Doves All Stars at Lugogo.
A statement released by the club’s vice chairman Deo Gracious Luyimbaazi stressed the element of mutual consent by the two parties.

In line with our main objective of playing in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League next season, Kabonge has been tasked to direct his efforts towards achieving that objective. Katwe United FC once again welcomes Coach Allan Kabonge and wishes him success in his new assignment.
Katwe United will travel to Bukedea on Thursday, 31st October 2019 to face Bukedea Town Council on match day five.
