Kenya Premier League record winners Gor Mahia Football Club has added to their squad a third Ugandan.

Holding midfielder Hashim Sempala penned a two-year deal as he was warmly ushered into the club.

”Gor Mahia sign midfielder Hashim Sempala from Tusker. The Ugandan signed a two-year-deal. Welcome to Gor Mahia midfielder Hashim Sempala,” the club tweeted.

The diligent Ugandan joins Gor Mahia from rivals Tusker Football Club.

Sempala becomes the third Ugandan to join K’Ogalo, joining left back Shafik Batambuze and forward Erisa Ssekisambu.

Batambuze had also played for Tusker before he joined Tanzanian side Singida United.

I am delighted to join the Kenyan champions and this is a big move for me in my career and I will strive to help the club achieve the targets they set for the season. I have always loved to play for Gor Mahia and I thank God that I finally have the chance to turn out for the great club.

In 2016, Sempala joined Tusker from BUL Football Club.

He has also previously featured for URA, KCCA and was part of the 2012 league winning Express FC team.

Gor Mahia is known for their fond love for Ugandan footballers where a couple of players as David Otti (R.I.P), Daniel Muzeyi Sserunkuma, Geofrey ‘Baba’ Kizito and lately Khalid Aucho have all played for the Kenyan giant side.
