Mugume, who took over the reins from former Cricket Cranes player Martin Ondeku in July 2022, resigned from his position for personal reasons, Pulse Sports can confirm.
“To enable a smooth transition, I propose staying in this capacity for the next 30 days, which is reasonable time to enable a smooth transition to a caretaker set up.”
“My heartfelt appreciation to the confidence exuded in me by our voters, Trustees, Cricket fraternity and all other organs within the cricket ecosystem.”
Nuwabaga added: “I wish the best for UCA and prosperity for Uganda Cricket, and best of luck in the upcoming engagements later this year, which I feel will be pivotal in opening more doors for Uganda Cricket and the country at large.”

The former South Africa U-19 cricket national team head coach, whose contract is set to expire in October, has been a subject of discussion.
This comes days after the association CEO Alan Mugume had stepped down, citing personal reasons.
Pulse Sports also understands that UCA board member Alvin Mboijana and association accountant have resigned.
The reasons for these resignations are unclear; they come at a time when the UCA board decided not to renew the contract of Cricket Cranes coach Laurence Mahatlane, which ends in October 2023.
