Bainomugisha labels Atibuni a great addition to Onduparaka FC

Onduparaka FC head coach Bainomugisha Vialli believes that midfielder Atibuni Kennedy will prove to be a player of great importance to the club.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder joined the Caterpillars from Regional League side Diamond Stars FC and signed a three-year contract with them.

According to Vialli, Atibuni’s signing is an added advantage to the club given his talent and age.

“We know we have attacking midfielders in the team but adding more gives us added advantage,” Vialli said during the player’s unveiling.

“Each of them including Kennedy (Atibuni) have a lot to prove and offer the team this coming season. We all hope he will fit in the boots of some of the big attacking midfielders this club has had,” he added.

The former Mbarara City coach went on to say that the club needs young players like Kennedy who he believes will give the squad a backbone upon which he will rebuild the squad on.

“Onduparaka is a club that believes in nurturing talent and if the scouts recommended a player like Ken then it’s good to have him on board.”

“He is young and has played the game of football for some time so it will be easy to work with him,” he noted.

During his high school, Kennedy captained Arua Public SS where he played alongside Mohammad Shaban and Andama Denis Koko who have both featured for Onduparaka.

He becomes Onduparaka’s third signing during this transfer window after the signing of Bonny Musema and Jerry Jakisa.

  1. Onduparaka much to my dismay acted in a predatory manner, unacceptable and unprofessional. I think they’ve learnt it from their counterparts in the league, who’ll take any player from wherever as they please and bully you on top, taunting you in the process and getting away with it. At least they should have had the decency of contacting the management for clarification. On the other hand, BUNNI should have stick around for a while and create a niche for himself, he was adored here. He’s the captain, he’s diamond star’s poster boy. but he’ll just be another player in ondu who I pray should be adored as well. but karma may follow him. he’s a player who was well received in diamond stars (Arua city fc) and should have had a courtesy of involvig his parent club diamond stars, who knows the future he might need diamond stars. Diamond stars is a football team that is evolving and will definitely become a household name in the next 3 to 5 years his decision would definitely haunt him. I wonder who the hell advises BUNNI they need to be seeing beyond their noses. As for the management, they need to check and address this issue in legal terms. Other wise diamond stars (Arua city fc) should not just bark like a toothless dog but bite back a great chunk and send a message around not to be messed around with whatsoever.
