A confident and jovial Kiiza disclosed to Kawowo Sports shortly before he checked in with the Entebbe Airport immigration department that he is focused to give his best and reward the faith vested unto him by El Hilal El Obeid.

I am going for work and committed to the noble cause.

I will deliver to the best of my abilities. I am also ready to play out to my best on the continent since I have been recruited to fill up one the remaining slots in the Confederation Cup

El Hilal El Obeid will take on Angola’s Clube Recreativo Desportivo Do Libolo at their Estado De Calulu in Luanda on Sunday during their Group C tie of the CAF Confederation Cup match.

The player had signed a brief contract with URA in January after being released by South Africa’s Free State Stars.

URA fully blessed his transfer to Sudan.
