Sports Club Villa forward Joseph Ssemujju has left the country for greener pastures in Botswana, the Southern part of Africa.
Ssemujju arrived safely in the Botswana capital of Gaborone before he was received by Pike Okello, a Ugandan players’ representative based in Lobtase city.
He immediately joined with with his prospective new club Black Forest Football Club in Mmankgodi and was even engaged in a friendly match, largely impressing the Zimbabwean head coach Gilbert Mushangazhike.
According to his Ugandan based representative, Simon Wasswa, the client (Joseph Ssemujju) received the full blessings of the club (SC Villa).
Simon Wasswa, player representative
SC Villa is aware of Joseph Ssemujju’s travel to Botswana. We are scheduled to formalise with nitty gritty of the transfer before he will be released officially. We wish him the very best in his journey to full professionalism.
Ssemujju skipped the Jogoo’s away trip to Arua for the goal-less stalemate with newly promoted Paidha Black Angels F.C in the Uganda Premier Leagie.
Days earlier, he had scored in the club’s 4-1 home win over Lugazi Municipal Council at Namboole Stadium in the Uganda Cup round of 64 after coming on as a second half substitute for live wire striker Bashir Mutanda.
He had joined the Jogoos as a free agent, penning a year -long deal on the employment contract.
Ssemujju has previously played at the current Uganda Premier league champions Vipers Sports Club before he was loaned to Express Football Club last season.
In case the deal materialises, Ssemujju will join the ever swelling list of Ugandans in Botswana.
Ivan ‘Kojja’ Ntege (Township Rollers), Alfred Leku (Extension gunners), Simon Olaki (Extension Gunners) and Lawrence ‘Blessed’ Ndugga (Jwaneng Galaxy) are now household names in Botswana.
