In life, everyone sets targets and what explains how hard one has worked to achieve the targets is the level of feasible output.

Talking achievement levels of the set targets, looks at the three episodes that have surrounded Arua Hill’s quest for a new head coach for next term.

In episode one, Arua Hill Sc did not have a positive response in the quest for Mike Mutebi’s signature and according to a source close to the gaffer, it was clear that earlier endeavors by the club chairman were quashed by some members as Mbabazi’s candidature was considered more popular than that of Mutebi.

That is history for now.

Episode two lured Livingstone Mbabazi out of Mbarara city successfully until this week when FUFA birthed a surprising rule that bars local coaches on national duty from taking part in club coaching at the same time. The same rule also interfered with the earlier scheduled unveiling of Mbabazi which was meant for this week in Arua.

This has however left the Kongolo Boys with a team that was purported to be Mbabazi’s assistants led by former Onduparaka fc coach Saddik Ssempijja. They are actually rumored to be in Arua but of course without Mbabazi.

Episode three is in present tense.

Since yesterday, Arua Hill Sc officials have been rumored to be in constant conversations with former Bul fc head coach Peter Onen over a possible move to Arua and as of today, the calls are said to have intensified.

The same source reveals that if the negotiations turn out to be successful, Peter Onen and his team are expected to be in Arua this weekeend because the club’s rescheduled unveiling of new staff has been pushed to this weekend in Arua. The change in affairs regarding Mbabazi of course led to that postponement.

And remember that the matter concerning a head coach requires urgency since training sessions have been scheduled to commence on Monday, 9th August in preparation for the finals of the FUFA Big league with Edward Golola’s Tooro United in about a fortnight.

In a similar scenario, the former Sc Villa and Gulu United midfielder should have been the next Onduparaka fc coach had the concerns about his back room staffing requirements been agreed upon by him and the caterpillars last month.

Peter Onen, standing 5th from left in between Adam Semugabi (to his right) and Moses Basena during a CAF Champions League game against Sc Vital’o of Burundi in 1993 in Bujumbura. He is strongly linked to Arua Hill Sc.

After getting relieved of his duties by Bul fc early last year, he was hired by big league side Bukedea town council before he got involved in a nasty accident towards the end of last year.

Peter Onen has also been on the radar of URA fc for some time after a seemingly difficult situation arose between the club and Sam Ssimbwa whose contract elapsed at the end of last season.

What this website is not sure about for now is, if Peter Onen completes the move, whether he will maintain the same condition he had given to Onduparaka or he will flex it a bit. 

This statement comes handy after the arrival of Saddik Ssempijji and team from Mbarara as well as former Calvary Fc tactician Ahmed Borini earlier this week.

In more developments about coaches, the trio of Hussein Mbalangu, Joseph Kiwanuka and Ivan Ntambi have, through their legal representative submitted a no show reply in regard to the second disciplinary summon scheduled for next week Tuesday since the earlier summon meant for 4th August did not take place due to an unknown reason.

In addition to the same, FUFA has issued the petition letter to the club but cannot confirm if response was made and once that gets done, a hearing date will be set in between the parties for a better way to handle the matter.
