Fast paced winger Ibrahim Kazindula has agreed terms with FUFA Big league outfit Nyamityobora Football Club.

The development followed failed talks with elite club, Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF) football club.

After being deemed as surplus to requirements at Kirinya-Jinja S.S, where he played football last season, the winger trained at UPDF in the pre-season.

In fact, he played a couple of build up matches as the club prepared themselves for the East African military games.

Apparently, after disagreements over a potential contract, he sought for greener pastures.

Now coached by Alex Isabirye, Nyamityobora has recruited massively ahead of the new season.

Some of the  other signed players are left footed winger Elukanah Nkugwa, Musa Docca, Titus Lubega, Godfrey Buni, Bruhan Matovu, Godfrey Ssempiira, goalkeeper Simon Mabuya and the utility former league winner Patrick Ssenfuka.

These join the old guard that has Yusuf Abato, Douglas Muganga, Abdallah Bajope, left back Benjamin Mugisha, Lameck Ebong and pacy winger Charles Ssebutinde (son to Express head coach Charles Ssebutinde).

Defender Muganga made a U-turn leaving Kirinya-Jinja S.S for a return to Nyamityobora F.C.

A couple of weeks ago, Nyamityobora overcame Tanzania league one club Kick off F.C 4-1 in a pre-season match at the Nyamityobora play-ground in Mbarara.

Nyamityobora was last season coached by Charles Ayiekho Lukula, who has since moved on to Kirinya-Jinja S.S.

They had a fair season last term, often playing neck to neck with the likes of Masavu and Synergy but ran out of steam where it mattered most.

The FUFA Big League is divided into two groups – Elgon and Rwenzori. The winner of each group qualifies directly to the Uganda Premier League.

The third club is determined via a promotional play off.
