Passing of URA FC Coach Sam Timbe Leaves Football Community in Mourning


The football world is in mourning following the untimely demise of respected URA FC Head Coach, Sam Timbe. The club released an official statement conveying the sad news that Timbe passed away en route to Nakasero Hospital for intensive care, as recommended by St Catherine Hospital. The club’s thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this challenging period.

Currently, the URA FC squad is encamped at Kampala’s Standard Hotel, fervently preparing for the forthcoming FUFA Super 8 Cup semi-final showdown against KCCA FC. The high-stakes match is set to take place tomorrow at the MTN Omondi Stadium. URA FC officials have assured the public that further updates will be shared as the situation develops.

Having taken over the reins in 2021 from Sam Ssimbwa, Sam Timbe, a seasoned football tactician with a CAF “A” license, had left his mark on the African football landscape. Notably, Timbe achieved a remarkable feat by clinching the CECAFA Kagame Cup with four different clubs. His triumphant journey included securing the prestigious title with SC Villa in 2005, Police FC in 2006, Atraco from Rwanda in 2009, and emerging victorious with Tanzanian outfit Young Africans in 2011.

While the club’s statement did not disclose the cause of Timbe’s sudden passing or details about his final rites, the impact of his contributions to the sport is unquestionable and enduring.

The football community, both locally and across the continent, is united in grief as they remember and honor the legacy of Sam Timbe.
