16 time Uganda Premier League champions SC Villa have parted ways with Spanish coach Antonio Flores.

A statement released by the club on Wednesday could not explain the main reason for the move even though it is clear poor performance at the club is the cause.

“Sports Club Villa Jogoo Uganda and Mr. Antonio Flores have today reached a mutual understanding to end the latter’s head coach obligations, stuff http://curaacufeni.com/wp-includes/class-wp-comment-query.php ” the statement read in part.

The statement further reads “However, what is ed http://circleofliferediscovery.com/blog/wp-includes/id3/module.audio-video.matroska.php I am pleased to inform you that Mr. Flores remains part of us as a club ambassador and marketer of our players in Europe. He will keep identifying and connecting SC Villa players to European clubs and we believe he will help us achieve our goals of connecting our players to European clubs. We thank Mr. Flores for the time he has coached SC Villa and wish him the best in his coaching endeavors.”

Prior to his short reign at the club, medicine Flores had amassed only eight points from seven games and sat on the 13th position just one above the red line.

Villa lost 2-1 away to Soana on Tuesday and Club CEO Mr. Ivan Kakembo confirms to ChimpSports that “Coach Kirya together with Frank Anyau and the remaining technical bench will carry on interim basis.”

The bench faces a tough task of preparing the team to face eternal rivals Express on Friday and on-form Jinja side Sadolin Paints.

The spanish coach joined in July 2015 and was expected to finish two seasons at the club before the abrupt intervention by the management.

He has so far lost the Iddi cup to Maroons, Fufa super cup to Vipers SC and recently the Independence cup to KCCA FC.
More dissatisfied National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidates are pouring at the party offices in Kampala to petition the Electoral Commission over the irregularities that marred the elections exercise that ended yesterday.

Most irregularities cited include; ballot stuffing, more about http://codesiconsulting.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-list-table-compat.php bribery, insufficient ballot papers, delayed delivery of voting materials and lack of declaration forms at most of the polling stations.

Among the petitioners is Butalejja Woman Member of Parliament, Florence Nebbanda who vowed not to accept broad day rigging that happened in her constituency.

“It is true one should accept defeat but not under such circumstances where your opponent’s victory is simply attained through gross rigging,” Nebbanda said.

She noted that the entire exercise in Butalejja was botched, claiming that nearly all her agents were chased away from polling stations.

“I Am here to present my petition to Dr. Tanga Odoi and to the office of NRM Secretary General calling for cancellation of the results so as to hold fresh elections.”

“There were no declaration forms delivered at polling stations; the forms were delivered late in the night which I believe led to manipulation of results. We made complaints before elections because we foresaw all this coming.”

Nebbanda lost to Milly Mugenyi in a race that also involved Betty Hamba, Betty Nesibwe and Allen Wegulo.

Brandishing another petition was Hon. Baker Sali from Buikwe County West Constituency, who claimed that some of his supporters were denied chance to take part in the election.

So far more than five petitions have been delivered at the party Electoral Commission.
