Since the departure of Milutin Sredojevic, Basena was handed the caretaker role in July and is in line for the job.
"The coach has informed the board of directors after the Ragaa match of his desire to end his contract with the club, saying he had an offer from Uganda that he can't turn it down," Ismaily said in a statement.
"The board of directors convened ... and tried to convince him to change his mind but he insisted (to leave).
"The board would like to assure the club's fans that it will find a solution to this without affecting the team at this stage."
According to AhramOnline, Desabre has moulded Ismaily into a solid and compact team since his arrival in July.
