Charles Livingstone Mbabazi has officially started his second stint as the Mbarara City coach on Monday 15th March.
Mbabazi attended the club’s training after successful lengthy negotiations that saw him agree to a one and half year deal with the Mbarara outfit.
He will be in charge of Mbarara City for the second time having previously coached the Ankole Lions during the 2018-19 season.
Mbabazi fills the void left by Brian Ssenyondo who was relieved of his duties last month and will work with Sadick Ssempigi as his assistant and Yusuf Ssenyonjo as the goalkeepers coach.

The trio previously worked together at Onduparaka in the first half of last season before Mbabazi switched Wakiso Giants.
His arrival comes at the time Mbarara City will be facing off with BUL FC at Kakyeka in their final first round game slated for Tuesday 16th.
His immediate task is to save Mbarara City’s season that sees the club sitting 12th on the table with 13 points accumulated from 13 games.
In his first stint at Mbarara City, Mbabazi led the club to their best ever finish (5th in the 2018-19) in the league since promotion to the topflight and remains the most successfully coach in the club’s history.
Richard Makumbi, Vialli Bainomugisha, Sam Kawalya, Ibrahim Kirya, Baker Kasule, Brian Ssenyondo, Paul Nkata and Sadick Ssempigi are other coaches that have been in the Mbarara City dugout since the club’s promotion to the top tier in 2017.
