“I am so humbled to join Vipers sports club,” Okot told the club website. “Its a huge achievement in my career and I hope to win so much at this big club,” added the U-20 international.

A sibling to Uganda Cranes left back Joseph Ochaya, he joins midfielder Rahmat Ssenfuka, goalie Bashir Sekagya and defender Ibrahim Kiyemba who joined from Police, UPDF and SC Villa respectively.

Okot reunites with defender Halid Lwaliwa, goalkeeper James Alitho and return Joseph Semujju with whom he played for St. Mary’s Kitende.
