Paul “Kiwa” Kiwanuka has been appointed as head coach at Uganda Premier League entity Bright Stars Football Club with immediate effect.
Kiwanuka makes a return to the club after he had previously served as assistant coach under the epoch of Fred Kajoba at the helm.
He will work with Simon Peter Mugerwa who is maintained as assistant coach.
The development was confirmed by the club management following unconvincing results under Muhammed Kisekka.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Paul Kiwanuka as the new Head Coach of the club until the end of the current season. Mr. Kiwanuka takes over from Mr. Muhammed Kisekka who will be deployed by the club in another capacity as the head of Scouting and Youth Development. Kiwanuka will work with Mr. Simon Mugerwa as his assistant. The rest of the technical set up of the club remains unchanged. We thank Mr. Kisekka for his contribution to the club for the period he has been Head coach and also wish him all the best in his new designation. We would like to request the football stakeholders to give our new Head Coach all the support needed to see that the club succeeds in its targets this season.
In as many as 14 games this season, Bright Stars FC has managed just one victory, registering 7 draws and 6 draws.
Kiwanuka’s immediate task at hand is that home contest against Police in a 1 PM kick off duel at the Bombo Military Stadium.
Bright Stars against Police is one of the two matches lined up on the day, the other game will see URA take on Busoga United at 4:3 PM.
