KAMPALA, (Xinhua) --
Uganda and Police FC striker Hood Kaweesa
has signed a three-year contract with Zambian Premier
League side, Buildcon FC.
Asan Kasingye, the Police FC chairman, said on Thursday
that the player who played a pivotal role for the team
in the first round of the Uganda Premier League will now
move to Zambia.
“It is good for the player because he has served our
club for sometime and recently was called to the
national team and it is also good for the country to
have as many players in the paid ranks in other
countries,” said Kasingye.
Musa Atagenda Ssebulime, the players’ agent, also
confirmed that Kaweesa agreed terms with Buildcon for a
deal that will keep him at the club for three years.
Ssebulime said the Buildcon FC officials were in the
country last week and held talks with the player and
club before the deal was done.
Kaweesa is currently the Uganda Premier League top
scorer after the first round with seven goal together
with Vipers SC’s Milton Karisa.
He also scored a goal when the national team finished
third at the 2017 Council for East and Central African
Football Association Senior Challenge Cup early this
month in Kenya.
Kaweesa now joins three other Ugandans at the Ndola
based club - Isaac Isinde, Boban Zirintusa Bogere and
Another Uganda defender Joseph Ochaya features for
Lusaka Dynamos FC also in Zambia.
