For now, Livingstone Mbabazi won't be smiling anymore after he is shown the exit door by Onduparaka FC after the Arua-based side saw their unbeaten home streak ended by SC Villa last weekend.

Uganda's top tier football side Onduparaka FC have parted ways with head coach Livingstone Mbabazi.
A communication by the club management indicated that Mbabazi had been told to step aside.
“We would like to thank you (fans) for your unwavering support during our good and bad times. Management is concerned about the recent form and performance of the club and as such, we have gathered opinions from our board, management and fans and come up with measures that will aim to get the team back on track.
"In light of the above, the management has asked its head coach Mr Livingstone Mbabazi to step aside with immediate effect from our UPL MD 21 clash with UPDF until further notice. As this takes effect, the club will make further inquiries into the possible challenges affecting the team and communicate its decisions in due course,” the communication reads in part.
Mbabazi’s exit comes after Onduparaka's defeat at home to SC Villa in Arua last weekend.
Currently in sixth place with 29 points, Onduparaka have registered one victory in their last five games.
Leo Adraa (technical director), Simeon Masaba (assistant coach), Moses Oloya (goalkeeping coach), Adiga Morris and Musema Ramathan will now be in charge of the team.
Their first assignment would be against UPDF in Bombo.
