However after the loan spell at Valur Reykjavik, the parent club hesitated renewing his contract.

“Mawejje having no club and being out of competitive action for five months is a big blow for the national team ahead of the national qualifiers and he will miss out if he fails to find a team,” Micho told Africanfootball.
