Two exciting left footed Ugandan footballers, Shafik Batambuze and Ivan Ssekazza have completed paperwork authorizing their transfer to Kenya Premier League side, Western Stima Football Club for the next 365 days.

The two completed their transfer to the Kakamega based club this week.

Left back Batambuze signs from giants Sofapaka whilst Ssekazza, an exciting prospect at the left attack role has been a player attached to Express Football Club in the Uganda Premier League.

Batambuze is an intelligent left back whose ability to involve teammates and confidence to dribble and pass accurately under limited spaces recently caught the eye of the Uganda  national team head coach, Milutin Sredojevic.

For Ssekazza, he is a born and bred product of the Aspire Football Academy programme.

In fact, he has since been taken upon as one of the academy instructors cum role models.

The gifted dribbling ace had a brief stint in Sweden – thanks to the Aspire programme before suffering a career threatening knee injury.

Upon full recuperation, he penned a contract with Express F.C he has played since.

We have acquired Ssekazza but he fail to make it in time for the team’s first match of the second leg against Sofapaka as the club is still awaiting his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) clearance

An official club statement said.

Western Stima F.C also signed veteran Kenyan international, Mike Baraza on a six month deal.

At the same time, the club released three players. Midfielders; Ali Bai and Justin Monda as well as striker Daniel Kamau were let go to venture their exploits elsewhere.
