Paul Nkata is the new coach for Mbarara City in the Ugandan Premier League (UPL).
The African club confirmed on Tuesday the experienced tactician has signed a one-year deal to handle the side.
Nkata takes over from Brian Ssenyondo who has been coaching the Ankole Lions on an interim basis.
Ssenyondo could return to the assistant coach role, a position he was appointed to when he joined from Synergy.
Nkata is returning to Uganda after he resigned as the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA FC) boss a year ago and his first match for Mbarara will be against Busoga United on October 1.
In Kenya, he also handled Bandari FC, a year after winning the KPL title with Tusker.
