Khalifa was named the head coach of the team early this week at the FUFA Women Football Symposium by FUFA president Moses Magogo on Wednesday.

“I don’t want to raise the hopes of my bosses, because the team has not been in existence am going to build a team which will be ready to compete,” he added
Khalifa will be assisted by Hadijah Namuyanja Moses Oloya as the goalkeeping coach together with Oliver Mbekeka as the team trainer.
