Arua Hill FC has dropped its head coach, Hussein Mbalangu ahead of their debut in Uganda Premier League. “The management of Arua Hill SC would like to announce that the club has parted ways with the head coach Hussein Mbalangu, assistant coach Joseph Kiwanuka and goalkeeping coach, Ivan Ntambi.

The decision reached due to excessive breakage of club code of conduct and absconding the club calls,” reads a statement from the club. This comes a few months after the coach signed a two-year deal with the club. Mbalangu signed a new contract with Arua hill in October last year, which was expected to run until October 2022.  The club has now appointed Bosco Onama and Ahmed Borine to take over the club.

“Mr. Bosco Onama and Borine Olima Ahmed will take over the official touchline matters for the meantime as we continue with the search for the new technical team” reads the statement. Mbalangu revealed to URN that he and his colleagues are dissatisfied with the decision and have already petitioned the local football governing body FUFA.

According to Mbalangu the team breached his contract and the contracts of his technical team that was meant to end in October next year by appointing Livingstone Mbabazi as head coach. 

He wants the club to compensate them for the remaining months on his contract and that of his technical bench.  Mbalangu, who didn’t want to comment on the matter, says he is demanding the Arua based Club over Shillings 20million. He says that his technical bench is also demanding compensation for the 14 months remaining on their contracts.

Tooro United topped Rwenzori group with 31 points after overcoming Kigezi Homeboys 1-0 in their final group game. The West Nile based team had spent six seasons in the FUFA Big
