After CEO Innocent Oguda’s departure things have just worsened for the Luzira based club, long serving coach Asaph Mwebaze has tendered in his resignation letter with just months after guiding them to top tier football thus ending his 11 year spell at the club.
Swift Sports reached Mwebaze and clarified on his resignation,
“I have resigned due to personal reason and maybe I need time off since have spent 11 years with Maroons so it is a longtime. But it has been a wonderful experience for me at the club and my resignation is not related to that of Mr.Oguda.
He was however coy on revealing his next step,
“At the moment, I have not yet decided on my next but once a challenging coaching role comes am ready to take it, a task that can always wake me up every morning.”
“It is always not good when they talk about the club and look at an individual so it’s now time for the club players to deliver after my departure since a club is bigger than individuals”. Said Mwebaze when asked to comment on the impact that will be felt by Maroons FC following his departure.
“I was inspired by my uncle Chris Bwanika one of the founder members of KCCA FC and grew up in a family of KCCA people and so am a life member of the club.”
Mwebaze has done tremendous work at Maroons guiding the club to top tier promotion on four occasions in 2007 after 20years, 2010, 2015 and 2017.
He has also won three big league titles with the club and groomed players like Pius Obuya, Patrick Kaddu, Muzamir Mutyaba, Rukundo Denis,Martin Mpuuga, Abel Eturude,Hudu Mulikyi, Kigongo Ronald all have passed into Mwebaze’s hands.
