SC Villa have not won a league title since 2004 when they won their 16th title which is still a record now.
Their record is under siege by none other than KCCA FC who were on eight when Villa were setting their own record.
KCCA FC are on 13 now, three short of Villa’s record who nearly got relegated in the 2018/2019 season.
But they survived after Onduparaka defeated Ndejje Lions 1-0, minutes after the game, under pressure coach Douglas Bamweyana took to his Facebook timeline and posted #DONE.
The four lettered word left many confused, had Bamweyana thrown in the towel or the luggage had just been lifted off his back?
“We had survived relegation and the pressure was off my chest,” Bamweyana would later reveal while appearing on NBS The Score, a Sunday night sports talk show.
The Sports Science lecturer who also once coached Express has not set a new target for himself if his latest post on his twitter handle is anything to go by.
“What an experience: Securing the team’s safety from the relegation threat! DONE!” Bamweyana posted on his just setup twitter handle,” read part of Bamweyana’s post.
“Feeling like I got an equivalent of five years’ experience in one season (2018/19), five times better than last year. On to the next challenge, winning the league title in the right environment – Charged!”
He would later reveal to this website that he had a huge doubt whether he would be at Villa or not.
“Just looking forward to the next challenge – irrespective of where I’ll be relatively assured of the right environment. Yet to find out if Villa would be it! Huge doubt!”
In his short spell at SC Villa, Bamweyana has worked under very cruel circumstance, bad blood stemming from outside and inside the Villa Camp.
Fans also turned against him and after their 2-1 loss Tooro United, Bamweyana didn’t appear again at Villa Park for training.
More eyebrows are raised when his deputy Simon Mugerwa was in the dugout when they defeated Nyamityobora 6-0 in their last league fixture at Namboole.
It’s alleged that on a number of occasions, he was given players training program but instead some team officials call players without his knowledge telling them training has been cancelled.
Because of the cruel environment at Villa Park, Bamweyana managed only six league wins, nine draws and six defeats guiding the side to 12th position on the 16 team log.
At the time when he came in, Villa had played eight games, lost four and drawn the same number and they looked like a team that was destined for the drop for the first time in their history.
