“It is glad to be at KCCA Football Club. I have to work hard and justify that the scouts did a good job and I am ready for the best at the club” Kakomo, who is nick-named Zake vows.

Kakomo is also a university student at Uganda Martyr’s University, Nkozi. He has the ability to control the ball, pass (short and diagonally) as well as execute timely tackles to retain possession.

Felix Kawooya Ssekabuuza, a coach at Ssingo Ssaza and has worked with Kakomo at Kiboga Young FC describes the young midfielder as hardworking and talented;
