Ex-KPL coach on the verge of winning first club title
Former Bandari head coach Paul Nkata has guided his new club Uganda Revenue Authority to the finals of Mapinduzi Cup that is ongoing in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
The Tax Collectors will face Azam of Tanzania after overpowering Tanzania giants Yanga 5-4 in post-match penalties in the semi-final played at Ammam stadium on January 10. The match had ended goalless in regular time. Patrick Mbowa, Enock Kibumba, Shafik Kagimu, Jimmy Kulaba and Brian Majwega scored for the Ugandans.
Tshishimbi, Kessy, Raphael Daudi and Michael Gadiel scored for the Tanzania side and Juma Mahadhi getting his spot-kick saved by goalkeeper Alionzi Nafan. Azam booked their ultimate place after seeing off longtime rivals Singinda United 1-0.
Nkata was relieved of his duties at Bandari after a dismal campaign of 2017. In the initial season, he had led Tusker to a record 11th Kenya Premier League title.
