Previously, Kampala Capital City Authority head coach Mike Mutebi has been a man of his word, and an astute organizer who follows his everyday planned activity to the dot.
But for the past week, the self-proclaimed “Omutegeke” which literally translates to “well prepared” has failed to live up to his billing.
On Thursday, last week ahead of a planned pre-match press conference ahead of the KCCA vs Kyetume game, Mutebi declined to talk to media citing failure to keep time and laziness on their part.
But since then, he has been caught twice on the wrong end of time management. First Mutebi failed to arrive on time as his team departed Lugogo for Mbarara ahead of their league game against the Ankole Lions at Kakyeka on Tuesday, November 26th, 2019.
The reason is yet to be established as to why Mutebi had arrived 80 minutes after the team bus had left, and probably that could have been allowed to pass as a one-off given his clean slate previously.
But to the astonishment of the many media personnel who assembled today at Lugogo eager to know why he did not travel with the team, and what his view of the upcoming derby against arch rivals SC Villa were.
Mutebi still failed to beat the set 10 AM deadline, the media had to be made to wait for over an hour as he only arrived a quarter past 11 AM.
Being a fair and just person that he is, he had to apologize to the media, as well as give an honest verdict of his ‘In-disciplined’ behaviour.
“Yeah! I am sorry for arriving late, you will have to excuse me for that,” Mutebi said during the press conference.
“KCCA is more than just a club, and we have shown that in the way that we carry ourselves both on the pitch and off it,”
“To be honest, we are the only club in Uganda that are doing things the right way. And failure by anyone to execute their duties is not excusable. I have failed to execute my contractual duties to the dot.” Mutebi added.
The gaffer also acknowledged that he is aware of the consequences of his actions, and is willing to face the punishments for them.
“I have been indisciplined, and as a club, we have our own code of conduct which is binding to everyone. So am ready to serve the punishment,” Mutebi continued.
Hopefully, for everyone at KCCA, Mutebi makes it on time tomorrow because they wouldn’t wish to have their gaffer away from a crucial game like the one against Villa.
