Paul Nkata finds home in Mbarara after a year of misery


By Aloysius Byamukama

He lost his job after walking away from his coaching role at Kenya’s Kakamega Home Boys, following a massive allegation of match fixing and a report to FIFA by the Kenya Football Federation, approximately a year ago.

However, Paul Nkata who has been sidelined by several local and regional clubs, was finally taken on by struggling Uganda Premier League side Mbarara City on a three year deal recently.

On his arrival in Mbarara a few days ago, Nkata seems to have found another home away from home, as he has quickly been incorporated into the club activities outside its league competition.

Nkata was an active member of the Mbarara City management corporate league team, as he helped them to just a single win, a draw and a loss, as the Mbarara Corporate league outing number six climaxed at Ntare grounds on Sunday.

Off and on the pitch, Nkata was seen with journey man Ali Tarbuley, who is also rumoured to have joined the Mbarara City technical staff as the club technical director, and with other Mbarara City technical bench officials around him.

It should be remembered that Mbarara City has now used a record 10 different coaches in its three year top league experience, and as Ali Tarbuley counting his third return to the club, its not quite clear whether Nkata will have a long spell with the club, whose top management only demands better results than excuses.
