Moses Basena and Fred Kajjoba will take on the mantle of leading the Uganda Cranes up to about September this year.

The decision was made official on Monday through the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) President, Eng. Moses Magogo while addressing the media in Mengo.

“For now, Moses Basena and Fred Kajjoba will serve as the national team coaches on an interim basis,” he said.

“We took this decision after thorough consultation and the two will be in charge for the games against Rwanda and Egypt as we look for other options,” Magogo added.

This follows the departure of Milutin “micho” Sredojevic who cited bleach of contract in terms of payment of his salaries thus terminating the contract on Friday last week.

Moses Basena has served as assistant to Micho since his appointment on April 15, 2015 replacing Kefa Kisala and will now take on the role of head coach on an interim basis.

Basena who also serves as head coach at UPDF FC in the Uganda Premier League will have his first task against Rwanda in the Championship of African Nations (CHAN) on August 12 in Kampala before a return leg in Kigali a week later.

He will also be in the dugout as Uganda takes on Egypt in the double header in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Kajjoba on the other hand will still maintain his position as the goalkeeping coach but as well serve as assistant to Basena.
