Jinja based Uganda Premier League club BUL FC will complete the second round without the services of their hardworking midfielder Joshua ‘Letti Song’ Lubwama.

Lubwama, also christened the ‘Tallest Muganda’ suffered a fractured fibula on the left leg on Saturday.

The unfortunate accident happened during a recovery friendly match his club played with a domestic side.

The lanky midfielder will be out for more than 16 weeks as he embarks on the road to recovery.

He is set to miss the closure of the season starting with this week’s Jinja derby when BUL hosts Kirinya Jinja S.S at the FUFA Technical Center.

Blessed with the expertise to read the game, pass the ball at all ranges as well tackle, Lubwama is also gifted with execution of the dead ball.

He is a younger brother to Hannington Ssebwalunyo, also a goalkeeper at BUL.
